Superdelegates another Dysfunctional Liberal Fix
By J.R. Dunn
The most striking thing about the Democrat’s superdelegate fiasco is how typical it is of liberalism. If modern liberalism — the style of liberalism that has existed since FDR’s New Deal — is characterized by anything, it’s the fixation on addressing “problems” with massive, grotesque, Rube Goldberg schemes that simply don’t work.
(One result of this setup is that it makes the reactionary, authoritarian GOP far more democratic than the Democrats themselves, but who would ever bring that up?)
