I really donâ€™t understand how bipartisanship is ever going to work when one of the parties is insane. Imagine trying to negotiate an agreement on dinner plans with your date, and you suggest Italian and she states her preference would be a meal of tire rims and anthrax. If you can figure out a way to split the difference there and find a meal you will both enjoy, you can probably figure out how bipartisanship is going to work the next few years.

Somebody on some TV program was talking about this some MSNBC thing maybe?, and the host and their guest were like yeah Obama and the dems should just say go screw yourselves and push through legislation anyway, essentially dare them to hold things up. Two things: One is that stuff needs to get done. The other is this.
I think Obama’s being very smart here. I sense, look, I bent over backwards to let you guys in on the process, I tried to listen to you, I tried to offer compromise, and you guys didn’t want to play. Essentially instead of doing a dem power grab ha ha let’s rub their faces in it, I think he’s trying to get everybody to give them every benefit of the doubt. If they hang themselves, as it were, it won’t b because the dems did stuff they knew would get the reps all pissed off.
Plus of course no party’s a monolithic entity, and maybe there are saner people who will be willing to actually come out of crazyworld and get some work done. Sorry if anything’s horribly mangled, my keyboard’s having some ort of issue.
