Progressives Must Go With The Wind

“To be blunt, Democrats could help President Trump win re-election if they’re not smart about how they cast themselves in 2020,” in “Left, left, left…That’s enough.”

Politics is the entertainment
Division of Corporate America.
Its players in Hollywood
Are smart about the scripts
And roles they accept.
Learn from them, the Times
Advises, forget ideologies,
Ignore the people’s interests,
It’s star power that wins the day
Any day for the gents at the paper
And their readers chuckling in
Million-dollar condos nearby.
