Watching the Pwog take body shots year in, year out from his elected goons, you almost begin to pity him. The cracked proceduralism is so charmingly earnest:
Clearly, the top of the party has learned zip in the past 8 to 10 years or so. I think it's time to work seriously to replace them. This isn't a progressive vs. centrist issue, this is a competence issue. The current crop of Democratic leaders in Congress simply appear incapable of standing up to the malicious wackiness of Republicans.Time to replace them? You and what caucus, brother?
The scuttling of this overladen grab-bag of half-baked giveaways, highway-funding, tax complications, and nativist gasbaggery actually commends the GOP congresscreatures to my dark faggot heart. At least they're capable of a little creative obstructionism, something the gelatinous Donk minority was never able to muster.
I know that Superjesus Black Reagan is supposed to be invested with the full Mandate of Heaven, but all the pipsqueak squeals of displeasure as he fails to get his way without question at every juncture in his young Presidency are unseemly at best. These people really do want a sort of parliamentary dictator; George Bush and the Republican Congresses are their ideal form; they just wore the wrong colors.
