With all this talk about "bi-partisanship", and "working together in the best interests of the country", I thought it necessary to take another look at what the Republicans consider "coming together".
This music video pretty well sums up the Republicans' ideas of compromise and bi-partisanship;
"Give us exactly what we want or you're being unreasonable.
"If what we want is to destroy you and your ideals, well, give us what you want or you're just unreasonable asshats". and we'll have our people and the media declare that you're destroying America. That you're traitors and unpatriotic.
Good music, excellent lyrics. Video after the jump. Please join me in welcoming... the Republican Bi-partisans!
Music by Jonathon Coulton.

Yep, I think that pretty well sums it up.
The current FISA atrocity is just the latest example.
"All we wanna do is eat your brains. We're not unreasonable, I mean, no one's gonna eat your eyes".
"All we wanna do is eat your brains. We're at an impass here, maybe we should compromise".
"If you open up the door, we'll all come inside and eat your brains"!
My original exposure to this video came from atrios. It's no longer on the front page, but I wanted to give credit where credit is due.
