RE: The Centrist Dodge
Oh please. Pick a side. The differences in left and right couldn't be more clear. It's gotten to the point where the goals aren't even the same. You can't have centrist solutions when one wants to navigate a river and the other wants to pollute it, drain it, and pave it over. Twenty years ago there was an opportunity to put together middle of the road legislation. The right wouldn't accept it. Now we're passing legislation that they proposed at the time - and they still won't accept it. The further right we let them go, the more they show their true colors. Or should I say color. Whites Only. Until the ivory tower journalists figure that out, they won't be able to write a useful political analysis. They're the ones who need to go to the corner bar and figure out who these beer drinkers they're always blathering about, really are.
