This from the Washington Post Back to School for The GOP -- By Peter Beinart
In the past few years, Democrats have gotten pretty good at mimicking Republicans. They've been training college activists, establishing think tanks and, more generally, trying to turn their party into a movement -- just what conservatives did during their years in the pre-Reagan wilderness. As John Podesta, head of the left-leaning Center for American Progress, told the New York Times Magazine a while back, "I describe myself as having a master's degree in the right-wing conspiracy."
Imitation may be flattering, but in this case, it comes with a large scoop of irony. Because while Democrats are enrolling in GOP 101, the GOP itself is in free fall.
Here is the complete text.
Meanwhile, Democrats must be careful not to rest on their laurels.
After all it was only two years ago that Democrats were, rightly, being derided for being disorganized and without direction. They must, at all costs, avoid going back to the days when they couldn't decide where to have lunch let alone how to develop plans on how to govern the country effectively.
So, Democrats be careful you don't learn better than the Republicans how to be Republican.
