I know sometimes it can feel like the parties are too similar. And there are some issues where the daylight isn't as much as I'd like.
But can there be any doubt - any doubt at all - that if Governor Jay Nixon (D) was Republican, the jackboot thugs that have terrorized Ferguson would still be on the march? Is there any doubt in the minds of anybody here, that he'd be cheering on them?
Is there a single commentator, pundit, politician, ect on the right who has complained about this situation at all? No.
But Jay Nixon reacted swiftly and justly. Is he a perfect man, a perfect Democrat? No. But right now, today, I'm glad he's in office. And I'm reminded of one of the many, many differences between the parties.
Something to keep in mind the next time you're tempted to say something like "both parties are the same!"
