Rooting for soulless hacks

This is from Ken Silverstein's old farewell post from last year, which I had meant to make note of but never got around to it. Given my disinclination to vote for Democrats in the future, I am finding this particular passage resonant.

The current GOP is truly a scary party, but if not for that it would be impossible to care about the midterm elections. When you’re reduced to rooting for soulless hacks like the current Senate majority leader—and he’s typical of today’s Democrats—you’ve lost something fundamental at the core of your humanity.
