I link James Taranto often ’cause he’s awesome. His dry humor is unsurpassed, even by the British. Commenting today on Democratic problems/excuses, he notes:
The Democrats’ message, in short, is that the Democrats are really lousy at delivering a convincing message. Since nobody finds this message convincing, it has a certain surface plausibility. But “We’re really lousy at delivering a message” is a lousy message–so the problem actually is one of substance, not delivery.
