Partisanship in Pictures

            Dodo bird                      Bigfoot                   Sane Republican

Responsible moderates like the late John Chafee are either extinct or in hiding.  Whichever is the case, they won’t be reporting for duty anytime soon.  (Can we finally stop pretending that Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins aren’t under Mitch McConnell’s greasy thumb?  They might as well be full-fledged teabaggers, for God’s sake.)

Meaningful bipartisanship is a fantasy.  Democrats, at long last, seem to be “getting it” on health care.  That confrontational mindset needs to continue if this country is to make progress on financial reform and other important issues.
