    Forgetting for a moment that ineffective and corrupt government is way down on the list...  When people get upset with Congress and, as a whole, it gets a 60% disapproval rating, most people give their own congressmen a FAVORABLE rating.  Never makes any sense.  The electorate has a hard time seeing beyond their own back yard (all politics is local), and usually vote with their wallets or whatever.

    I'm almost willing to give up on the issues and get down and mud-slinging dirty if that's what it's going to take to get these bastards out of office.  Which is a scary thought because if people won't vote on the basis of solutions to important long-term issues (energy, healthcare, global warming, national debt) then we're done for.  So I'm back to being a pessimist again.  sigh

    A pessimist sees a glass half empty. I see a paper cup with holes punched in it.
