  •  I see a deeper bias in those statues (18+ / 0-)

    Washington defines power struggles as existing between Democrats and Republicans, who represent the alpha and omega of political opinion in American life.  The two-party system, upon which Washington operates, limits the perspective of those within the Beltway to the careful minuets between the parties on the Hill.

    A better representation of power struggles would be a K Street lobbyist in fine suit with briefcase, with a single mom with two small kids.  Money vs. People is the real divide in American political life, and as we see right now Money owns at least 1 1/2 parties, sometimes both.

    Reporters and opinionators at the Post could usefully look at the Lobbyist and the Single Mom every morning and evening, to remind them what politics is really about.  It might change their reporting and writing styles profoundly, and thus might change our politics.  Something needs to.

    "I would say to you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice!" Bzzzt! Sorry Barry, thanks for playing.
