The real problem for Democrats is that “smug” isn’t really their strategy; it’s how they emotionally react to their conclusion that their viewpoint is better, more moral, smarter, wiser, fairer, more sensitive, more compassionate, and so on than the opposition. It’s not a campaign issue; it’s a character issue.

The Temperance movement also felt that their wisdom and higher moral character should allow them to impose Prohibition on their less moral, less wise inferiors. Then they ran into reality.


It’s not a character issue, it’s a character flaw.
