Jeff [Jarvis, of BuzzMachine, a Democrat but one who can be critical of his party] believes that there's room for the two parties to work together. On what planet?
The weakest points for the Democratic Party have been their moments when they have shunned what it is to be a Democrat (intelligent answers to complex dilemmas, common sense over corporate cronyism, justice over calculated acts of violence) in order to be "just like the Republicans" (ie. voting for the Bush tax cuts or the war in Iraq).
It takes no particular genius to combine these statements logically and come up with the following: Republicans, who are The Enemy (per the first statement), stand for [per the second statement] foolish answers to complex dilemmas, corporate cronyism, and calculated acts of violence. If he honestly sees Republicans in this light, it's really no wonder the Democrats lost seats across the board in November. Even politicians who hold no love for bipartisanship tend not to portray their opponents as moronic criminal types, if they want to win office. (Dean, on the record as a Republican-hater, sort of excepted.)
Willis subtitles his site, "Like Kryptonite To Stupid." If I were in the mood to be pedantic, I might point out the flaw in his simile: kryptonite does nothing to stupid (or to stupid people or to stupidity). But maybe - considering the very evident inefficacy of this worldview at winning elections - it's accurate after all.
Update: A commenter points out that I'm guilty of a similar sin: extrapolating the words of one blogger to the entire Democratic party. S/he's right - my post does read that way. What I should have said instead of "If he honestly sees Republicans in this light, it's really no wonder the Democrats lost seats across the board in November" is, "If Willis's view of Republicans is widely shared by Democrats, or even just by significant portions of the Democratic leadership, it's really no wonder the Democrats lost seats across the board in November."
