The Democratic Party has become the something-for-nothing party. Their policies will eventually lead to destruction of individual initiative and, like Homer, even an individual’s dignity.
Will Blake and Eilperin produce an equal opportunity TV-character criticism of the Democrats? Of course not, because the Washington Post is in business to promote and protect Democrats, not ridicule them.
A party reliant on millions of Homer Simpsons is far more shameful than a single congressman making a single stupid comment, even if the Washington Post doesn’t think so.
