  •  He can't really believe that? (6+ / 0-)

    He's not so stupid to think that 'bipartisanship' really means anything to anybody who's not a Villager.

    Is he?

    People want jobs.  And peace.  And security.  And functioning infrastructure.  And world class education.  (Oh, and they want it all for free, but that's a different issue.)

    They honestly don't give a fuck whether Jim DeMint has had his ego sufficiently soothed (here's a hint - it'll never be sufficiently soothed).  There are no decent people left among elected Republicans.  Those that are decent human beings have abandoned ship.  Hell, the Democratic coalition now includes a whole lot of folks who probably don't qualify as decent human beings, because the Republicans have gone so far around the bend that even some borderline sociopaths have given up on it.  Bipartisanship, in the sense of taking ideas from the left and the right and compromising, takes place between the Progressives and the Blue Dogs.  The power-mad extremists in the Republican caucus will never compromise.  It's not in their nature, because they only want to destroy - and they don't need any help to accomplish that goal.

    "...the work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives, and the dream shall never die." RIP Senator. We miss you.
