It would seem that the lame-
ass duck session of Congress is turning into a ship of fools, blindly cruising the harbor hoping to run into a place to dock.
Right now, I blame the Republican leadership for not keeping their troops in line (*cough* *cough* Scott Brown *cough*) just as much as I blame the Democrats for trying to take advantage of their last chance to ram their tax and spend agenda down the country’s throat. Tax cuts that aren’t, spending increases that shouldn’t be, treaties we don’t need. Ar-r-r-ugh!
And the Republicans are doing precious little to stop any of it. They should be being as obstructionist as hell, but it seems they’re more concerned about how the media will paint them (as if they stand a chance at a fair assessment from the media) than they are about heeding the words of the American people. Let me give you people a hint–those of us who are going to cause you trouble from now on don’t care what the media says about you one way or the other. We’re judging you on you actions–or the lack thereof.
Ya’ll just keep it up. The anger that fueled the rise of the Tea Parties is still simmering right along. It wasn’t all used up in the 2010 elections–there’s still plenty to use the next time around.
Perhaps that’s why they keep passing unemployment benefit extensions–they’re afraid they’ll need them for themselves.
