Here’s a hint: That is not the answer, and it won’t work in November.
“A belief in one’s own virtue feels good. Losing a battle that could shape the American political landscape for decades feels bad. The tension between the two left some Democrats grappling anew this weekend with the implications: Maybe they really are the Wet Rag Party.”
Uh, could someone point out which part of the Democrats’ behavior toward Brett Kavanaugh during the confirmation process was virtuous?
More ruthless than far-fetched sexual assault allegations? https://t.co/xKRq560Bx7

So much for Michelle Obama’s “when they go low, we go high” platitude.
