    Is that we live in a country where people who try and fail get blamed infinitely more than people who never try at all.

    Ironically, the Democratic Party's biggest strength -- that we actually give a shit about our fellow Americans and want life to be better for everyone -- ends up being our biggest political weakness.

    The GOP, on the other hand, doesn't even act like they give a shit about anyone else. And when they get in power, they prove it. In a perverse way, they're meeting expectations.

    Our values system is completely inverted.

    They've done studies, you know. 60% of the time, it works every time. -- Brian Fantana
