If U.S. democracy falls this century, it will likely be at the hands of a stubby-fingered sack of extra-piquant donkey farts who likely never bothered to read the Constitution he swore to uphold—and certainly didn’t understand it if he did bother. In other words, we’re at the stage in the...

Either the political acumen of the voter is in dire need of reeducation, or Democrats need lessons in exploiting a golden opportunity.

Republicans swing the word freedom over the heads of their voters like the Sword of Damocles.

I was born in the 1950s when it was not illegal for black people in the south to vote—it was suicide. Pseudo-laws, tests, intimidation, hoods, ropes, and guns were the anti-democracy tactics of the day.

The devolution of the Republican Party has been a sight to behold—but it’s been a particularly fraught experience for ex-Republicans.
