The Nailing Both Parties using only One Line Award

"With the possible exception of the Republicans, is there a major political party more stupefyingly brain-dead than the Democrats?"
From Nick Gillespie's review of Matt Bai's The Argument: Billionaires, Bloggers, and the Battle to Remake Democratic Politics in Sept. 2, 2007 NYT Book Review, p.10.

One party is busy chasing tail, and the other has fallen down the rabbit hole:

Witness the political brouhaha and then the formal rush to distance over potential gay bathroom sex; other extramarital sexual activities are forgiven as long as they are heterosexual. This from the party that has given us "family values."

The other party meanwhile is still without backbone as it somersaults down the rabbit hole--passing a wiretapping bill that gave the Attorney General the legal power to authorize once illegal wiretaps which he had assumed illegally, and one of the reasons why he had been called to testify before Congress.
