On Republicans, and how they compare to Democrats

It is rare that I disagree with P.J. O'Rourke, but on this I do. I also disagree with this fellow, who seems to have already forgotten a lot of the horrors of the Bush II regime, which included its own poorly designed and only vaguely funded health care reform.

On the other hand, I agree with this. A taster:
Politics is a ridiculous profession populated by ridiculous people. Maybe if we elect increasingly clownish candidates, the public will eventually come to realize this, and finally realize that it’s probably not a good idea to put larger and larger portions of our lives and livelihoods in the hands of people who have achieved success in a field that rewards character traits you spend your entire tenure as a parent trying to teach out of your kids.
