  •  Hunter, I love your writing. (5+ / 0-)

    This, while grotesque, makes the point perfectly:

    If one party wants to chop up kittens to feed them to the elderly, and the other wants seniors to get gift certificates to Applebee's, then the obvious answer is to give them gift certificates for purchasing dead kittens.

    I have said many a time that I want my party to act like liberalism matters and is right.

    The entire concept of bipartisan agreement, on most matters, and certainly on matters of kittens, medicare, social security, medicaid, veterans, health care, regulations on the market and banks, etc. does no one much good.

    It was a brilliant analogy and made the point beautifully.

    202-224-3121 to Congress in D.C. USE it! You can tell how big a person is by what it takes to discourage them.
