In some of the best news of the past two weeks, we learned that the Blue Dogs met with Obama and seem to now be a tad more housebroken.

Even more fun, though, was the snark that came to the fore when LeanneB made this comment:

Wonder how one negotiates with people whose only real objective is to ensure that your primary goal is thwarted, entirely?

It didn't take long at all for kossacks to come up with some brilliant analogies for the bipartisanship fetish.  Come play along...it's fun for the whole family!  Bipartisanship is like...

An answer to LeanneB and its reply:

This reminds me of a comment I read about 8 months back. This is like trying to figure out where to go eat with someone and you suggest chicken and rice ... they however suggest lugnuts and anthrax.  

I am not certain how one comes up with a place to eat.

The Middle Ground Between Aspirin Therapy and execution.

Coming to a compromise on the death penalty.

DJing for a mixed crowd of Slayer fans and Yanni aficionados.

Wanting to be President, but only part-time (shrubya notwithstanding)

See?  Hours of fun!  Add yours!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    if i had used "gabber" instead of slayer?

    ;D

    And since this diary is ostensibly about health care, please read all the health care diaries on the rec list and do what they tell you to!  especially the part about contributing to jane and eve's efforts on the ground in DC.

    i will update diary with all amusing musings.  also, feel free to use this diary as a health care open thread; if you've diaried about health care, pimp it here (just please provide a brief summary and not simply a link)!

    Quit posting non-sequitur "replies" just so your comment will be high up in the thread. It's effin' douchey. ♥

  •  Well, no (0+ / 0-)
    The blue dogs walked out of the White House, walked into committee, and voted against the health care reform bill a second time. This was a silent "fuck you" to President Obama and everyone who cares about health care reform.

    The only way to housebreak these fuckers is to make sure they understand that they will lose their jobs in 2010 if we don't get health care reform in 2009.
