  •  I think this has to be right . . . (4+ / 0-)

    However, I believe that  the Democrats in Congress realized that they were playing a deadly game of chicken with a crazy person who was so stubborn that he would rather let the troops starve and then try to blame it on the Democrats than back down.

    But I also don't think we, as a country, have adequately understood the horrifying implications of it.  The enormity of what it means to our system of government.

    It means: this whole time, the past 200 years, our system has worked because no one had the guts to really and truly game the system.  But the system can be gamed.  

    We are a nation of men, not laws, it turns out.  And that has to be fixed.

        You'll be missed to!  

        Maybe next year, when DKos has a clearer target to aim its collective intelligence at, you'll be happier with the quality consistency!

        Have a look, at least.
