Democrats finally regret crying wolf all those years
At NYPOST by Rich Lowry --
The Republican nominee for president is a racist, sexist threat to American democracy — and this time, we really mean it.
In a nutshell, this is the Democratic argument against Donald Trump. In a wild, topsy-turvy political year, it’s the one exceedingly familiar piece of the political landscape — because it’s a version of the argument the left makes against every Republican nominee.
That this line of attack is so shop-worn, just when Democrats think we need it most, has led to self-reflection and regret from one of the harshest commentators on the left. HBO host Bill Maher said the other day that “liberals made a big mistake” when they attacked George W. Bush “like he was the end of the world,” and did the same to Mitt Romney and John McCain.
