Yes, Progressivism is effectively dead.

Twas gonna write something about some outlying factors about the huge defeat to Progressivism… but Donald at American Power did itJuiciest of many juicy parts:

And I really do believe that progressivism died tonight. For the last 18 months we’ve heard leftists proclaim a surge and revival of progressivism, following the first protests against Walker in Madison, and then when the Occupy movement gave fresh hopes to so many more. But when push came to shove in the Badger State, all the left’s forces couldn’t get it done. But note something here: While progressivism as a functional, viable ideology in American politics is dead, the activist left will continue to drone on like a Zombie starved for brains. As Roger Simon noted a couple of weeks back:

Liberalism as an ideology is in its death throes. Only the power trip remains.

You REALLY have to see the AFL-CIO tweet over there.  It will make your day.
