It’s fitting that Halloween and Election Day are only a few days apart. Both days use the iconography of fear to help gain treats and both leave a sort of sickening aftertaste.
The Republicans definitely don’t deserve to win this election season but it’s clear that the Democrats absolutely deserve to lose. The fact that the GOP is poised to win the House and will clean the Democrats clock in the Governor’s races should be a big, fat warning to the Democrats that they have screwed up badly and should try to stand for something that people actually want to vote for. Instead, Democratic leaders want to blame the base for apathy.
