Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Today In Awfulness

Kids are going hungry, because the GOP refuses to continue providing food stamps to people who need them.

Despite widespread public support, the House won't even vote on ENDA, because gays are icky to the teahadists.

Because of the importance of the DC Circuit court, Republicans won't allow a vote on Obama's nominations to fill those positions.

Republican governors who refused to accept the Medicaid expansion under Obamacare will mean that millions of Americans who would otherwise get health insurance for the first time will struggle get it.  Some people will die because of this.

Listen, you assholes.  Either help govern or get the hell out of the way.
