STUCK IN PLACE AND SMALL IN IDEAS.

A recent diatribe from Chris Matthews hails what he sees as a "revolution" in the Democratic Party.


His "revolution": a different old lady on the Senate floor spouting the same populist froth we've been hearing from people for years.  "New Deal" and "Great Society" aren't even in the current history curricula.  And his lament about the Democrat establishment appealing to the same "basic constituencies."  Hah!  The welfare recipients and academicians within those constituencies haven't done much positive lately to persuade others to see things differently.  And thus Mr Matthews might be right in anticipating House and Senate majorities that aren't likely to be flipped in one election cycle.  Just another mockable week for self-styled progressives and their enablers.
