Move the clock back to November, 2013. It’s a year after Obama has won a second term in the White House and it looks like the Democrats will control Federal power forever. There is talk of a permanent Democratic majority cemented into place by a liberal Supreme Court that will last for decades. Glenn Reynolds noted that in the absence of any conceivable reversal, all the rubes could do — they had not yet been dubbed the Deplorables by Hillary Clinton — was exhibit a truculence or spirit of passive resistance he described as “Irish Democracy”.
