That's Rich

Not much of interest in the news today but Frank Rich has a column worth reading. My favorite graf:
This G.O.P., a largely white Southern male party with talking points instead of ideas and talking heads instead of leaders, is not unlike those “zombie banks” that we’re being asked to bail out. It is in too much denial to acknowledge its own insolvency and toxic assets. Given the mess the country is in, it would be helpful to have an adult opposition that could pull its weight, but that’s not the hand America has been dealt.
He's right about that. Building on yesterday's post, it's too bad that the GOPers don't see what they're doing wrong. It worries me a little to see them slitting their own throats. The two party system we have now is already too incestuous and we can look to history to see that one party control breeds more corruption than it does good works. This "changing the way DC works" thing, isn't going to be easy.

And yet those banks that were bailed out - almost to a man were heavy contributors to the Democratic Party.

What on earth does that have to do with this post? And btw, are you the same CS from Detroit?

CS, it's always good to provide a link to support accusations. Otherwise, people might think it's BS.

Typical troll: Only just joined Blogger this month, prob'ly only to post this drivel. No blog, no info on him or her. All that's missing is the white sheet to hide his face. They never change, these cowardly right-wing b*st*rds, do they?
