  •  Fuck bipartisanship, and fuck Republicans. (18+ / 0-)

    Once they've shown they can behave like actual human beings and stop lying about everything, they can come back to the table. For now, pat them on the heads and tell them to go out and play, the adults are working.

    They tortured people to get false confessions to fraudulently justify our invading Iraq.

      Robert Gibbs is going to say from the podium, "Well.  Screw Bipartisanship.  The Republicans clearly suck.  We're going at it alone."

      Not gonna happen, and I wouldn't hold your breath.

        and neither does Obama -- that's up to the leadership in the House and Senate.

        Pelosi has already said as much, by saying they're not going to pass a bill without a public option. Where's Reid on this? And would the Senate ConservaDems really dare to go against their President on this, especially the ones from the states where Obama won in 2008? (I'm looking at you, Evan Bayh.)

        Civility is the way of telling someone to go fuck themselves in such a way that the someone agrees it probably is a good idea.

        •  I respectfully disagree (0+ / 0-)

          I don't think that the leadership has been THAT effective at conveying the following message:

          "Screw the Republicans.  We're doing it alone"

          Pelosi saying that they're gonna pass it only with the P.O. is understood as such for us politicos, but not for the general public.
