bah humbug, dems

Two initial reactions to today's piece by James Carville and Rebecca Buckwalter-Poza claiming that Democrats will rule for "the next 40 years."

1. BS. Remember the "permanent republican majority?" Carville just enjoys getting his rocks off on rhetorical vengeance.
2. A "permanent democratic majority" doesn't make us any less likely to fight corporate wars, demonize and marginalize the poor, or widen the net of the police state, so should progressives somehow drool and dance with joy over a hypothesized four decades of slightly-lesser-evil?
