So this is what MCDC has become

The French have a saying for it: Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose...The more things change, the more they remain the same. Less than a year after taking the courthouse, Montgomery County's Democrats have apparently become the New Republicans.

And now that they're in charge, they even get their very own "best networking event in Montgomery County" held at a swanky, upscale country club. An event like that just oozes the working-class/middle-class values that Democrats are supposed to represent, doesn't it?

They can juice this thing up all they want with the list of co-sponsoring unions and marquee political names, but the real names to see on the list of sponsors are the corporate law firms, civil engineers and financial advisors who are only too happy to throw money and fancy soirees at the ruling party.

And, quite apparently, the new Ruling Class is only too happy to step up to the trough and accept.

I think George Orwell had them pegged:

"No question now, what had happened to the faces of the pigs. The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which."
