Stuart Stevens is a longtime Republican consultant and writer (and a critic of this year’s GOP nominee). There’s an observation that he made on Twitter, applied to the current presidential race, about false confidence:
Just because somebody had a few drinks & made it home, don’t take it as proof alcohol helps you drive. https://t.co/1dvNnkVHqT

He’s right, of course: some who take the wrong path are initially lucky, but over time the wrong course will lead only to unfavorable (if not disastrous) outcomes.
Initial luck is no defense against the predictable consequences of repeated, misguided actions.
This truth applies nationally, across Wisconsin, and locally.
