  •  We are stuck with the "pig in a poke" that we (5+ / 0-)

    may have bought in this most recent presidential election (for reference to those perhaps shocked due to unfamiliarity with the phrase, the reference is here).  We have, on the other hand, 55 members of the United States Senate who have the chance to make a strong public case for not going along with anything that looks a bit like Boehner's Plan B...

    Media presentation will, as always, drive the narrative and Boehner's gloating orange-rimmed pig eyes may well eventually glisten with the tears of victory because of that framing, but we need to support and encourage Democratic Senators to fight that good fight.  It may be the only hope we have if the president, having failed to understand the lessons of his first term, decides that the gulf between compromise and principal is so gaping that "making government work" means little more than "making government work for Republicans"...
