For John, BLUF: The Democratic Party Apparatchiks don't get it. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Writing in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Columnist Salena Zito describes a DC centered Democratic Party that just doesn't get the "fly over" states.
It reminds one of the famous quip by New Yorker film critic Pauline Kael following Richard Nixon’s landslide 1972 victory: “I live in a rather special world. I only know one person who voted for Nixon.”Are we going to see a similar quote following Tuesday's Election? One of the jobs of political parties is to educate the electorate, but I have always wondered if the author of What's the Matter with Kansas? was too busy talking to be able to listen. Part of the job of the voters is to educate the Parties.
By the way, please vote on Tuesday. I would like you to vote my way, but more, I would like you to vote.
Hat tip to Dean.
