I have long contended that Leftists only like democracy when they win. Their eagerness to use the courts to overturn state referendums and laws with which they disagree is only one manifestation of their contempt for constitutional democracy.
Now the New York Times has just illustrated my contention by publishing an op-ed by a Duke professor and student titled “Cancel the Midterms”.
That is not a joke. And, yes, when I first heard of this, I thought it might be an internet prank. But this column is for real. The authors really do think we should do away with midterm elections.
But I am sure that has nothing to do with the defeat Obama and Democrats got in 2010 and the one they may be about to get tomorrow.
