The trend continues...

"The real threat to our republic is an alarming breakdown in social cohesion, and the cause of this breakdown is obvious: radical, rising economic inequality, and the anger and anxiety it engenders. The truth is that over the span of decades, American lawmakers (at the behest of economic elites like us!) have enacted policies that have depressed wages, stoked economic insecurity and exacerbated cultural angst and social dislocation."

Bear in mind that the first English settlers who arrived at Cape Cod abandoned their colony and returned to England after 22 days because they feared running out of food. On Cape Cod. Which their captain named Cape Cod because of all the cod they found there. The same captain who called the big island Martha’s Vineyard because of all the grapes growing there. These would be the same folks who dismissed clams and lobster as inedible. They were not necessarily insightful is what I’m trying to say.

But their emails! (Are really really bad.)

If you've never been on the Democratic Party mailing list you might never have seen their campaign fundraising messages. Signing up would almost be worth it to see how hilariously awful they are. Except for the fact of their incompetence helping destroy American democracy and all that.
