Mild Amusement

I was on the road last week so kind of blew this off; but I'm back today.

But I am mildly amused by John Hawkin's latest article, in which he argues that Liberals don't have a permanent majority. or rather he argues that they do have a permanent majority, but in a sarcastic ways. See for yourself.
Sure, America's political history has been one long churning political cycle with both party's fortunes going up and down, but that's not going to happen this time! This time, the Republicans aren't going to learn anything from losing, conservatives aren't going to be inspired to take action by being out of power, and the Democrats aren't going to get even more complacent and corrupt as they enjoy the rewards of being in power.
What I find mordantly amusing is the admonition to Liberals not to get overconfident. Hawkins wasn't writing in 2002 or 2004, but I am guessing some Conservatives could have used his advice in the days of "Permanent Majority" talk, and the embarrassing suggestion that the red states kick the blue states out of the union.
