Gov. Tim Kaine (Va.) said he is a man “who wants to see American values guiding our nation again.” If a Republican said that, he would be denounced as a miserable McCarthyite — and the denunciation might be correct.
Also, Kaine quoted the Gospels, and a gospel hymn — shoutin’ it out. If a Republican does that next week in Minneapolis — this will be proof of the “theocracy” of the GOP.
Right? It’s a tired old point — but right and necessary all the same.
