There is an idiom in the sports world that “a win is a win is a win.” In other words, it doesn’t matter if you’ve beaten your opponent by 50 points or one. It doesn’t matter if you win the race by .0001 of a second, or if you blow away the field, with the rest a full lap behind you. A win is a win is a win.
So, in the case of politics, is a majority a majority a majority. It doesn’t matter if the majority is 80-20, 70-30, or 50.1-49.9. A majority is a majority is a majority.
I only bring this up because there is no apparent end to the pitiful whining eminating from the political left. I suppose when you have nothing constructive to offer the nation, the best you can do is complain about what the party in power is doing, without offering any alternatives whatsoever.
Jeff has delivered, in few words and using simple math so the left can keep up, a majority primer on why the Republicans have a large enough majority to legitimately run the country.posted on July 9, 2005 10:39 PM
