This was the week when Democrats finally started to act like Republicans… 

That’s right. Many became creatures of supine passivity in the face of a failing incumbent putting his selfish ambition ahead of the good of the country.  

But let’s rejoin the story a week ago, when the party, led by a candidate unfit to win re-election, had started to voice their concern. Some muttered about finally doing something about the Biden problem. Talk of alternative future timelines began to seep out into the public. Dream tickets were dreamed about. Democrats whispered the names Whitmer and Shapiro into their pillows.
