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.

McCarthy drops out.

At this point, you really have to wonder if anyone can be Speaker of a House that has the Freedom Caucus controlling the levers of power.

And if they can't, we are headed for a full year of complete dysfunction in the House.  Of course, given the rank dysfunction in both our political media and America's political ignorance, this will likely be blamed on Obama.  I'm serious.
