    I'm 51, and I've seen a lot of shit-stirring come out of the US Senate in my day. I watched the Watergate Hearing live as a young teenager.

    But the divorced-from-reality modern #GOP members of the US Senate and the US House? These fools dare risk the 'full faith and credit' of our nation because they don't want the newly elected Democratic President to garner any political victories?

    They obstruct and obstruct, then they insert stupid ideas into the frigging Continuing Resolution to fund the federal government (because their brethren in the Senate refuse to pass any Budget the President sends them); and make these stupid ideas worse, by making them permanent via this under-handed legislative method of doing business. See the stupid in all it's glory here, in Mark Sumner's diary. In which Mark says, "Bullshit. Double bullshit. And get the fuck off the stage." With which I could not agree more.

    So I totally agree. Our Democratic contingent in the US Congress needs to wake the fuck up, and smell the napalm. Their opponents on the Right are never going to come to a good faith negotiation. Not until the Democrats stop getting played by the Republicans, and beat them at their own game.
