The LA Times Sunday ran this column and it may be about the smartest missive I’ve read about the state of things in American politics.

Key passage:

The results in the 50th Congressional District did not merely illustrate the potential inadequacy of the Democratic strategy for the November elections; they foreshadowed a much bigger and more startling story line: That even in the face of Republican scandals, sour approval ratings, the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and growing public rejection of President Bush’s policies in Iraq, the Republican Party still holds the lead in the art and science of obtaining power – and keeping it.
