Red-zone pol­i­tics

The Washington Times Weekly - - Culture, Etc. -

“We still fight our elec­tions be­tween the 40-yard lines, as one pun­dit put it re­cently, and not in des­per­ate goal-line stands, like par­lia­men­tary democ­ra­cies, and it’s a good thing, too, a legacy be­queathed to us by the in­cred­i­ble wis­dom of our founders. [. . .]

“[T]oday’s Democrats are stark rav­ing post­mod­ernist Lenin­ist de­con­struc­ters [. . .] our pol­i­tics does not any longer rep­re­sent a sim­ple mid­field swing be­tween FDR and Eisen­hower. Sadly, our re­cent Repub­li­cans in ma­jor­ity tried to play it that way. When you play mid­field ball against a team that plays red­zone ball, you lose. And so the Repub­li­cans have lost, and with it have lost the fran­chise to pro­tect Amer­ica against very real en­e­mies, en­e­mies as real as Tojo and Hitler, and even more blood­thirsty, with atomic weapons in the off­ing.”
