>The Combine

>A brief but important essay from ChicagoBoyz via Insty.

Read it all, and don’t get caught up with the concept’s specific application to the Zombie Senator from Alaska.

Instead, use the term to view the entire establishment political spectrum:

…America, welcome to Illinois.

The way it works is this. The Democrat party is the senior member of the Combine. The GOP is the junior member of the Combine. The game is exactly the same, and whoever is up, or whoever is down, based on the random behavior of those rubes, the voters, does not matter. The game is always exactly the same, and the people who are in on the game, from either party, have a shared stake in defending the game…

Do you understand yet?

  1. >"The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can throw the rascals out at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy. Then it should be possible to replace it, every four years if necessary, by the other party, which will be none of these things but will still pursue, with new vigor, approximately the same basic policies."

  2. >I suspect Murkowski's not even doing it to win the election. She's doing it because people in D.C. asked her to, to split the conservative (or conservative-in-name-only) vote and throw the election to the other member of the combine. She'll get another seat at the table after the election.Daniel K Day
