"The Democrats are in real big trouble."
Wait, "trouble" as in lots of hot air that results in nothing? Yeah could be.
I remember the first time i heard a politician say "i take full responsibility" and then do nothing nor did anything happen to them. That was the first time i noticed a decoupling of actions and consequences for the political class. And every step is indeed a slippery slope that no one wishes ever happened.
We need to respect the slippery slope argument. It's a society killer.
