You see it's the party that's failed, not the philosophy

Bruce reminds me a bit of American Marxists in the post-Stalin era, who insisted that it wasn't that Marxism was wrong, but that the Russian implementation of it wasn't real Marxism. And if only we had Reagan, the six years of Republican one-party rule wouldn't have been a disaster.

Because, after all, Reagan would have been busy sending arms to Iran to support illegal wars in Central America, running up a debt that we're still paying off, and pandering to the religious right without actually giving them anything.

The fact of the matter is that conservatism as a philosophy gives us exactly what we got under Bush, and it will take a generation of forgetting for people to start voting for them en masse again

Be a glutton for punishment: Read the strip
