As soon as all this political claptrap is over maybe we can get on with what is really important, such as balancing the budget, health care reform, our almost defunct social security system, and trying to make peace with our off shore neighbors. I wonder if all that is possible as long as the politicians at dysfunction function continue to behave in the manner to which they have become accustomed.
It's time to grow up "boys" and "girls". Remember who is paying your salary and why we voted for you in the first place.
I strongly suggest you reread Lincoln's Gettysburg Address given in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania on November 19, 1863, especially the last line; "...and that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from this earth." I think we're in big trouble. We now have a government that's of the government, by the government, and for the government not for the people thanks to dysfunction junction.
I think it's time for another Boston tea party.
