What a fall, and how richly deserved. The administration didn't care enough to make sure the people of their country were protected. In the middle of a second Age of Anxiety they decided to make Americans more anxious. The next few weeks and months they'll continue to see the people's mighty wrath.But true to her usual form, I suspect Peggy's not seeing the full picture...
People are wondering if we are seeing the end of liberalism. We are not. Liberalism, a great and storied American political tradition, will survive this. But progressivism—liberalism without blood—has been badly, deeply damaged.Poor Peggy. She seems to think politics as usual can still save us.
I don't think she understands how deeply progressives have damaged things. And I think she way underestimates how hard they'll fight to cling to, even try to expand, their now fleeting power and influence.
I'm not saying the progressives will prevail. But I am saying they can still inflict far more additional damage on the nation than most politics as usual people realize.
