I knew the author's party affiliation even before I read the piece. See if you can guess it, also.

I wonder if he felt that way when Bob Dole was running against Bill Clinton in 1996? Probably not.

"IF YOU DUMBA** VOTERS WERE ONLY AS SMART AS ME, A FORMER CONGRESSMAN, YOU'D KNOW HOW TO ELECT GOOD PRESIDENTS!"
