Cartoonist view An opening for

a party of reality
Here they come, the newly resurgent
Democrats, ready to take on “the man” (Rep.
Rashida Tlaib); protect America’s middle
class from “attack” by big corporations and
billionaires (Sen. Elizabeth Warren); provide
“Medicare-for-all” (Sen. Kamala Harris);
offer universal pre-K (Julian Castro); and
fight capitalism in general without any idea
of how it works (Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez).
The Democratic Party is lurching to the left
like a confused American driver on a British
Mona Charen
As The New York Times’ Thomas Edsall
notes, it isn’t just leaders who are stamped-
ing to the port side. Democratic voters are becoming more liberal,
too. In the past 17 years, Pew Research has found, the percentage of
Democrats who described themselves as liberal jumped from 30 to
50 percent. This is reflected in issue positions. In 2008, the percent-
age of Democrats who agreed that immigrants here illegally should
be permitted to become citizens was 29 percent. That increased to 51
percent in 2018. Between 2010 and 2017, the portion who said “racial
discrimination is the main reason many blacks can’t get ahead these
days” rose from 28 percent to 64 percent. (Notably, among white
liberals, 79.2 percent agreed that discrimination was the main thing
holding blacks back, whereas among black respondents, the per-
centage was lower — 59.9 percent identified discrimination as the
obstacle to progress. Hmm.)
The liberal nostrums on offer are utterly disconnected from the
actual challenges the nation faces. It’s hard to see how the “war on
the middle class” theme can get traction in an economy with 3.9
percent unemployment. Poverty has been declining and middle
incomes have been increasing since 2013. Jobs are plentiful. Me-
dian household income reached $61,372 in 2017, which is higher
than comparable countries like Canada, Germany, France, Britain
and Denmark, and exceeded only by a handful of tiny rich nations
sitting on oil (Norway) or numbered bank accounts (Switzerland and
Lichtenstein). U.S. median household size, meanwhile, has declined,
so individual wealth has increased even more than the income num-
bers reflect.
Admittedly, facts need not impede a good political pitch. Republi-
cans have succeeded by offering their own fractured fairy tale about
what ails the nation. They’ve insisted that we are being overrun by
illegal immigrants, when border apprehensions are at an 18-year low.
They assert that immigrants bring crime, which is false. They’ve
claimed (along with some progressives like Bernie Sanders) that out-
sourcing has decimated U.S. manufacturing, when the real story is
that automation has been the chief cause of lost manufacturing jobs.
And they’ve claimed that globalization has hollowed out the middle
class when, in truth, global trade, while costing some jobs, has creat-
ed far more and provided middle-income Americans with a bounty of
affordable products, thus improving their standard of living.
Republicans and Democrats alike encourage victimhood. We need
a party that will address the true problems we face.
As a governing matter, our greatest problem is that we are not
behaving like citizens but like consumers. We are gorging on entitle-
ments and washing them down with tax cuts. The bill? What bill? We
can always borrow more! Medicare’s trust fund runs out in 7 years.
Social Security’s in 15. But what the hell, let’s have free college! Bar-
tender, let’s have another tax cut, but this time for the middle class!
(By the way, what ever happened to that pre-election pledge?)
Any individual who behaved the way our nation does would be
obese and broke.
Also, we are living in a civic cesspool. Our language, our man-
ners and our hatreds are out of control and out of proportion to our
problems. We are marinating in mutual contempt and suckers for
conspiracy theories. Do you think the Covington High imbroglio was
bad? Wait until deep fakes come along. These video impostures can
make any politician (or anyone else) appear to say anything. Imagine
the kids at the Lincoln Memorial having racial slurs put into their
mouths by video manipulation.
It’s not that our problems are so intractable; it’s that our spirits
are so sour. We desperately need some uplift, some commitment
to the rule of law, more suspicion of centralized power, and a stab
at trust. It’s a lot to ask of a political party, and frankly, most of our
problems, like the decline of families and churches, are pre-political.
But leadership is important, and the majority of Americans are not
at the extremes. A recent survey found that 54 percent of Democrats
would like their party to be more moderate. And two of the most
popular Republican elected officials are Maryland’s Larry Hogan and
Massachusetts’s Charlie Baker.
That’s a start.

Schaefer stressing
improved play on
defense for Bulldogs
By Adam Minichino

STARKVILLE — Vic Schaefer hasn’t

forgotten about defense.
When you’re as efficient offensively as the No.
7 Mississippi State women’s basketball team, it’s
natural for a lot of questions to focus on that end
of the floor.
Coming off a 48-point win against Florida on
Thursday, No. 7 MSU continues
to lead the nation in scoring (90.9
points per game). The Bulldogs
also are fifth in the country (first
in the Southeastern Conference)
in field goal percentage (50.7
percent) and 16th in the nation
(second in the SEC) in 3-point
field goal percentage (38.1). Schaefer

The potter’s touch

Chris McDill/Special to The Dispatch

Stephen Phillips fine tunes a work-in-progress at his potter’s wheel in Crawford Thursday. He added the convex design element to this jar with his fingers
from inside the vase. With friends and family members, Phillips transformed a portable storage building into a studio where he makes ceramic vessels,
plates and other distinctive pieces that have already gone to customers in cities including Chicago and West Hollywood, California.

Phillips, 30, was waiting outside his stu-

and knit cap. His wide smile was instantly
noticeable. But the most indelible impression
from the visit was of his genial naturalness.
Phillips is “at home” talking about his passion
for clay. Enthusiasm, tempered with humility,
underpins his conversation. There is a sense of
eagerness to get on with it, with making more
