    it works both ways.

      Yes, life works like that, doesn't it?

      Still, there comes a point when the pendulum will swing to the point where actual citizens will fight back against the people who supposedly carry the weight of wisdom on their DC shoulders, and shake them up.  

      I never cease to be amazed at your determination to brook no criticism of DC power-players.  Ya know, inside-the-beltway-types.

        that no one can realize the fact that the blogosphere is in the midst of its own power play.

        and that once they get in charge, they will be just as dissappointing to people who make it their business to be perpetually dissappointed.

          It's human nature to be disappointed, and upon acheiving power, be the disappointer.

          This ain't new.  It's what we humans do.  Over and over again.

          What is surprising to me is that the Begala's not recognizing that they're just players in a game and their time, too, will come.  

          How bad do things have to be - the lies to war, the secret energy policy, the massive tax cuts for the rich, while the deficit grows to the point where it may be our undoing, the incompetence, the blatant corruption, how bad exactly does it have to get,for the Begala's to recognize, it doesn't matter if I'm on the side of right or wrong, I'm going to be swept out with the tide?

          Maybe they see the flood coming, but try to deny it, then out run it.  

          I don't see Nirvana around the corner; I see a popular movement to move the upset the politics of DC just enough to stop the approaching train-wreck.
