People who already believe both parties are crooks will see that theory grow with this latest outrage. If it's true, then Dems will no longer be able to bitch about gerrymandering and stacking the courts with right-wing nutcases because "both parties do it." If both parties are crooked, then the alternative is ... well, what is it?
I'm not a Democrat, but I lean more toward the left side of the aisle than the right and this little game of one-upmanship really pisses me off. It comes on top of a number of other recent Democratic outrages, mostly having to do with privacy, war crimes and Monsanto, at a time when the Dems should be poised to simply flatten the crazies of the Republican Party, where even old-timers have had enough.
If you're pissed, say so. I don't know if it'll do any good because nothing seems to impact politics except large sums of money, but it feels good to get it out in the open.
