    I think that the single most maddening aspect of this modern notion of "governance" is that it has soooo many juvenile characteristics to it.

    Abject selfishness, the inability to think about anything beyond their next election.

    Immediacy, the inability to think beyond immediate consequences - the cuts to earned benefits cause so much pain into the future.

    Blame, the need to paint the opponent as the entire reason for all the world's troubles (though there IS agreement in all the rest of the world that it is Republican intransigence that is the biggest problem).

    "I am going to run away" - using the threat of dire consequences to manipulate a desired end.

    Blessed are the peacemakers, the poor, the meek and the sick. Message to Repug Fundies: "DO you really wonder "what would Jesus do?" I didn't think so.
