Such are the mysteries of the universe that befuddle Chris Matthews. He asked this question yesterday of some other liberals as together they bemoaned recent victories of Tea-Party-favored candidates throughout the country. He actually answered (partially) his own question when he said of Democrats, "they believe in government."
Between this incident here and the equal consternation to which Nancy Keenan (see yesterday's post) admitted, we see some progressives are beginning to sense that their halcyon days are drawing to a close. We the People are waking up to the fact that we are people, not sheeple. We do not need the Messiah Most Miserable, his Minions Most Mindless and the progressives they represent to be our nannies - and our masters.
