    devastatingly accurate:

    mealymouthed, weak-kneed, PAC-funded, cowardly, out of touch, let-them-eat-cakeish, preemptively-surrendering, fake-bipartisaney corporate-humping voter-dodging cash-grubbing incompetents of the Senate....

    ...our Fine Upstanding Senate Traditions, and of our own Democrats, like the Republicans, very much wanting to be as crooked and corrupt and corporatist and money-grubbing as their voters will possibly let them squeak by with being, and presuming that as long as they're slightly less corrupted, slightly less crooked than the worst of the other party, they'll be fine, what the hell...

    A very large chunk of our greatest-deliberative-body Democrats don't want to pass healthcare reform, they want to kill it. Our leadership, frankly, doesn't seem to give a rat's ass either way...

    Fine, we get it, senators: you're corporate whores, money-grubbing professional campaigners who don't have the slightest interest in actually solving this problem.

    I guess this is why I feel defeated and glum this week. When I try to defend the Democrats of Congress to anyone who asks me, it ends up being, well there are a few good ones, and on the whole they are better than Republicans,'s hard to defend them at all right now.

    Have some guts, Senators. Care about the people and what is good for the country, for a change. You may not have the chance again to do what is right.

    I really don't understand how bipartisanship is ever going to work when one of the parties is insane. - John Cole
