    forgot how to compromise, they rejected the concept wholesale. I can't remember which congressman it was, but he said that of course Republicans are willing to negotiate, the Democrats just need to agree with what they are offering. It wouldn't surprise me if it was my new "representative". I can't believe they gerrymandered me from Dingell to Wahlberg. Yuck!

      And they're willing to send the country into another recession until they get it.

      Even Democrats can be asses. Look at Rahm Emanuel.

    •  The problem is when ideology becomes a religion (2+ / 0-)

      If you're a True Believer, there is no compromise -- you are Right, and anything that deviates from what is Right is therefore Wrong, there is no nuance, no shade of gray.

      And that's the problem with a lot of the 'bagger Republicans -- they're so ideologically steeped that it's like a religion to them, and they can't compromise because it would be like forsaking a religion they've believed wholeheartedly their whole lives.
