When you’re winning, you never argue amongst yourselves. Winning cures all ills. Everyone likes everyone else. All is forgiven, etc.
For decades the democrats controlled Washington, D.C. The dems consistently won. At times, they had all three branches of government. Other cycles would see them control the presidency and maybe one House or the other. Regardless, they were winning.
Sure they would outwardly complain about Republicans, but we never saw any infighting. As Rush Limbaugh has stated on many occasions – even when things looked not as good for them, nobody circled the wagons like the democrats. In other words, they never turned on each other.
Interestingly, when you’re consistently losing year after year, the same applies. Throughout those same decades, the republicans seemed satisfied with, or at least tolerant of losing. They weren’t good at circling the wagons around one of their own, but still, there was little infighting.
Look at the biggest losers in the NFL. We never hear of fights breaking out at the Cleveland Browns or Jacksonville Jaguars facilities. Why? Because they are preeminent losers and are used to the role. Players that have been with one of these teams a while understand that there is no expectation of winning a Super Bowl, making it to the playoffs or even posting a better than .500 record.
