Blue Detroit

Blue, as in liberal Democratic governance for decades.  Now the once mighty city is on the verge of declaring bankrupcy, a move that will reverberate throughout the land.  Via Meadia has an interesting post on this, complete with this telling analysis (HT: Instapundit):
Progressive politicians, wonks, and activists can only blame big corporations and other liberal bogeymen for so long. The truth is that corrupt machine politics in a one-party system devoted to the blue social model wrecked an entire city and thousands of lives beyond repair. The sooner blues come to terms with this reality, the greater chance other cities will have of avoiding Detroit’s fate.
As always, Mead's commentary is insightful and astute.  Check it out and make sure you follow this development.  This is very important.
