Liberals: "See what that life-style and political system lead to..."

They do this by playing on the represeed anger of over-40 boomers who

fantasize doing what Clinton did but can't (won't). The self-righteous

anger I hear people expressing sounds like repressed desires to me.

Isn't what's hapening here a classic case of _ressentiment_?
