The NYTimes Magazine tells us that Both Sides must move to the Sensible Center, and you’ll never guess how:
I think what’s needed in the short term to preserve democracy, to get through the worst of this storm, is a much broader coalition than we’ve put together to date. Something on the lines of true fusion tickets that really brings in Republicans …
That would mean bringing in a good chunk of that Bush-Cheney network that’s out there — that in private says the same things that I’ve said, but that has thus far been largely unwilling to speak out publicly — and having them in many cases on the same ticket.
It means that lifelong Republicans have to work to elect Democrats. And it means the progressives have to set aside a slew of policy issues that they care deeply about so that the ticket is comfortable to right-wing politicians.
Silly liberals, you need to make concessions to notable war criminal Dick Cheney and work to make Republicans feel comfortable…
Yes, Dick Cheney: the Sensible Center of American Politics. And that’s when I closed the tab.
