Comment Elsewhere: Moderate Middle Muddle

In response to a particularly egregious David Brooks false equivalence, I wrote:
The two parties have drifted further to the extremes."

What? The Republican party certainly has eviscerated it's own middle, but the Democratic party has, if anything, expanded its 'big tent' to include even more of the moderate middle muddle to the point where 'extreme' (i.e. liberal and progressive) views are being marginalized.

Tweetle Beetle Paddle Battle references are left as an exercise to the reader.

Republicans these days seem to be more concerned with ideological orthodoxy than Democrats. This is partly due to the fact that it is hard to determine what the ideology of the Democrats actually is. Personally, I like the moderate middle. It's the only practical place to be.
