  •  Digby is right (7+ / 0-)

    All of our political leaders and talking heads are comfortably ensconced back inside the Beltway, doing exactly the opposite of what voters told them to do.  Once again, they are lulled and comforted by the soothing entreaties of K-Street, then  buoyed by the thrills of the DC cocktail circuit.  

    They won't be paying any attention to the voting public until the next election cycle.

    Such a good life they live in DC.

    Please stand by. I'm looking for a new sig line.

      •  Lame Duck Sessions (0+ / 0-)

        I used to enjoy them when Dem presidents were in charge.  A lot of problems were fixed then. Not any more.  Now its like waiting for the next hurricane to make landfall.  

        Please stand by. I'm looking for a new sig line.
