According to Bartley, it's just sour grapes
"To protect democracy, three judges of the far-left Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals have just canceled elections in California. The last horselaugh, I'd hope, for the Democratic charge that Republicans are subverting democracy. As we saw in this space last week, the charge was already a pretty silly explanation of the patent anger surging through the Democratic primaries.

The anger must have deeper, perhaps subconscious roots. So let me put the Democratic base on the couch and offer my own speculation. The party's most ardent adherents are angry because they feel they've lost their birthright.

That is to say, base Democrats think of themselves as the best people: the most intelligent and informed, the most public spirited, the most morally pure. This self-image has become more than a little shopworn over the years, and now George Bush's conservative Republicans threaten to strip it away. Inevitably such Democrats are angry."

How do morons like this get space in the WSJ? With *'s popularity at 50/50, this dork is awfully cocksure that repugs will 'strip our self-image away'.

1. Bartley is an "Old Hack" seeing his party go down in flames over Iraq
and he's worried about his legacy of whoring in the Editorial Pages of WSJ for years......

They go down hard when they are as arrogant as he is!
