By now, most good liberals are wondering who to blame for Tuesday’s debacle, and all the usual suspects have been called out by the pundits, and we won’t go into those tired tropes now.
As for me, I blame the centrists, and more specifically the DLC-arm of the Dims. Steve Israel has already resigned as the head of the DCCC (even as Nancy Pelosi asked him to stay on!) and I am anxiously awaiting the good news that DNC remora Debbie Wasserman Schultz will finally remove her suckers from Wall Street.
(Side note: the DNC website has not been updated in days. Time stands still.)
Anyway, Crooks and Liars has a terrific piece up about Israel’s Center Aisle Caucus (an organization that until now I had never heard of), which sort of explains both the weak candidates who lost, and the even more odd Republicans who went unchallenged, and not always because they were in a solid-red district. Yes, the centrists really are to blame for a lot of what happened on Tuesday. Along with the usual suspects.
