Republicans hung our own confused and confusing man, Kratovil. Maybe that will show him what the middle road of compromise looks like?

Dems: "We should sound like the people that garner 23% of the pop. support instead of listening to the majority that voted for us"

Wow, the douche in the effigy photo sure looks happy with that self-righteous grin. On one of the NPR shows, they were talking to some people in one of the Carolinas about the health care bill stuff and the guy (an older guy, I think) said (I paraphrase, but the key words are still there) that he was worried that "it would benefit the minorities and not help white people." All said in a southern hick drawl, of course. Then again, you have to grant that white people deserve better care and that minorities aren't really people who deserve the same sort of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Jesus.

I know I shouldn't be, but I'm always surprised when I hear people say stuff like that into a live microphone, on purpose. I'd like to think this sort of racism/bigotry is dying out with the older generations, but from what I've heard from some young people, I wonder. It's going to a long time coming.

All that said, I think we're going to end up with a nominally different system, mostly in name, that still works poorly. It won't be very socialistic, but Obama will continue to be painted a pinko, even though he hasn't deviated from the status quo nearly enough, in my opinion.
