Throwing a Pity Party...

It is the Progressive way, to belittle with the most pejorative terms all of the strongly held beliefs with which Progressives disagree.
This is one of the reasons why compromise has become impossible, and legislatures are frozen into inaction and uslessness.

One would reasonably guess that electing someone to an "office of trust" who turns out to be a thoroughgoing arsehole would make subsequent decisions more cautious. Doesn't seem to work that way. Instead, the voter, rather than accepting his error as error, avoids self-criticism by praising the arsehole as being even better than he thought. That broad, smooth path into hell is becoming precipitous.

Hah! I wrote the above post with the governor of New Mexico as the arsehole. After reading it as written, I realized that it works equally well with Trump as the target.

Have I coined a General Purpose Political Post?

Electing an arsehole of one sort or another is the choice we have. Who else would take the job? In fact, who else could do the job?

The trick is getting what you want from an arsehole, while he is there. I'll take the anti-socialist arsehole who is obsessed with keeping campaign promises, every time.

One of that arsehole's campaign promises was that he would not mess with Social Security pensions or Medicare.
