A bit like the Decider, when he had his man-crush and looked into Putin's soul and saw what he wanted to be, non?
Ah, ils oublient tellement vite....
You know, articles just like this were written about FDR, calling him a dictator after he won his third term, in the midst of WWII, so let's have some perspective.
And as for "democratic self-loathing": Our system has become increasingly dysfunctional with the rise of corporatism and the MIC, and our elected officials are ever-more beholden to these powerful interests, ever-more reliant on their money, and ever-less responsive to their constituents. They are insulated with the rise of entrenched incumbency.
The system upon which this republic is founded is a cause for great pride, but its present state is one for equally great concern.
