Join Jim and Greg as they’re thrilled to see a significant shift in suburban voters from the Democrats to the GOP. They also react in horror as USA Today opinion writer David Mastio not only reveals that he was forces out of a job for saying that only women could have babies but that the whole Gannett network is catering to a woke ideology that has no interest in a diversity of opinion. And they discuss the bipartisan yawning over Biden’s call for a federal gas tax suspension and the hypocrisy of lawmakers like Washington Sen. Patty Murray, who hated the idea when a Republican was president but now supports it when Biden is in office and she’s up for re-election.

    The SE Cupp comment sounds like a long standing error that a lot of Democrats have made.  Democrats have deemphasized economic liberalism, which is still very popular with a lot of voters.  Democrats have embraced “lifestyle liberalism”, such as sexual issues and environmentalism.  As you point out with SE Cupp, lifestyle liberals mostly associate with like minded people.  This is why many commentators and policy makers don’t understand how issues like inflation are killing Democrat candidates this year.

    As a recent Ricochet post noted, often when leftists see leftism fail, they want more leftism, but with different leftists in charge.  Because they think THEN it will work.

    For fifty years, Democrats have looked at their advantage among the young — because the young get their information from the left-leaning media and professoriate — and imagine that this advantage will persist when the young become the old.

    But where the Democrats have the media, the Republicans have — reality.  And as the young get older, reality gradually comes to outweigh the comfortable illusions of the Left.

    Especially when reality gets painful like now.  Otherwise they can sometimes avoid facing it.

    If you’re rich enough in California, you never have to see the human excrement on the streets, or hide in your bathtub to avoid stray bullets, or sit in traffic jams for hours on highways that the wealthy progressives won’t upgrade.
