    when you say the administration is either hopelessly naive or completely captured by the same interests.  it's not true.  clearly the administration does not owe its existence to the koch bros.  and it is not naive. your analysis such as it is, leaves you no place to go.  

    imo what is going on is exactly what is described in the paragraph on hostage taking: it is the irrational crazy psychotic actor that holds the power in a hostage situation, and the sane, rational actor who is at the disadvantage.  we saw this played out for days during the manufactured 'debt crisis'.  that part of this article was the most cogent and important in the whole piece, for it laid out clearly what effect it is having on the voting public in terms of its view of 'government' and 'politicians'

    obama HAD to be the adult in the room; he was the president.  same goes for extending the bush tax cuts.  

    imo as to what to do, is we have got to make sure the senate doens't flip, and we have got to return reason, as well as nancy, to its throne.  

    it's going to be hard, concentrated work with no room - ABSOLUTELY NO ROOM FOR DESPAIR.

    Vote GOP in 2012; let's prove the Mayans right!
