"It's not just GOP, wait it out." This is the liberal side of the coming bargain: Look, some liberal sacred cows will become cheeseburgers, too. Tell people we're in this together.

Are the wedge issues real and emotional? Absolutely. Women should absolutely feel violated by the GOP policies *designed to make them feel scared and violated*. They will likely be exposed as such.

But imagine how they feel reading about Al Gore's family and their dealing with Kremlin agent Armand Hammer to open up oil in Libya, Occidental Petroleum. They'll want some reciprocity on the active measures *that were based in reality.*

Prepare for a two-way street.

Are both parties equivalent? No. I mean, unless Planned Parenthood stood up as many straw donors with foreign oligarch money as the NRA, the "scoreboard" will be unequal.

But the types of corruption will be the same, even if not in scale and scope. So be ready.
