Latest Liberal Midterm Loss Conspiracy: It’s Joe Lieberman’s Fault
You just can’t make this stuff up, folks. Well, really, it can be made up, just not by you, because you are not raving paranoids living in a unicorn infested world of hopey changey unreality, like Ezra Klein does
Since the election, there’s been a lot of talk about what President Obama and the Democratic leadership could’ve done differently. I offered six ideas here. But there’s been rather less discussion of what individual legislators could’ve done differently. Consider, for example, Joe Lieberman.
Ezra then travels down alternative universe (or, is that alternative medicated?) roads, building a wild case that Joe Lieberman screwed up the (already massively unpopular) health bill (remind me, wasn’t it supposed to be about health insurance, not health care?) so it’s his fault that Democrats faced a massive tsunami of a midterm loss. Or, wait, what?
Put all this together and it might’ve saved a few seats, or perhaps it wouldn’t have saved any seats at all. Or maybe it would’ve changed everything. At any rate, it’s the sort of thing that might’ve made a difference, and its absence was the result of one senator’s incoherent intransigence. We’re pretty used to looking for what the White House did wrong, and what the congressional leadership did wrong, but in a Senate where there were 60 Democrats for a time, there are a lot of cases where the decisions of one or two individual senators made a big difference to legislative outcomes. They deserve scrutiny, too.
Huh? So, Joe might have made little or no difference, or a lot of difference? Which is it? Ah, screw it, let’s just blame Joe. It obviously can’t be the Wonderfulness Of Barry and Nancy and Harry and their super duper most awesome legislation which people will learn to love the way they love Castor Oil.
