Democrats Are Still Misreading Political Reality

You know that old tale about the guy stranded on a rooftop during a flood who beseeches God to rescue him? A neighbor in a rowboat comes and offers to rescue him. “No, I’ve asked God to save me,” the man says. Then a police boat makes the same offer, and he gives the same reply. Finally, a helicopter arrives, same response.

The flood claims the man and, when he gets to heaven, he berates the Almighty: “I had faith in you, but you didn’t save me. You let me drown. Why?”

God says: “What are you talking about? I sent two boats and a helicopter for you. What more do you want?”

Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia may not be on a rescue mission from God, but the Democrats would be wise to see him that way.
