Who in the world are these 34%? Consider

Consider that Richard Nixon, even after his own counsel testified in Congress that he was involved in breaking and entering, even after documentary evidence was produced of his involvement in bribery, obstruction of justice, and the rest of what came to be known as "the White House Horrors", still had a 25% approval rating.

I therefore conclude there are 25% of people who will vote "my Party right or wrong", no matter what. They are the same people who supported the most evil of dictators during World War II, even as the allies came marching down the street, they are the Baathists who said "Well, Saddam ain't so bad, at least to me", they are the people who cannot admit they were wrong, or that anybody else might have a point.

We get to see several of them on this board every day. The President still has about 10% to go. Perhaps we will be treated to watching one of two of them be stripped away before it is all over.

What a country.
