Observations on the pathetic state of American politics

Course Change? Only for Dems, of course

William Saletan’s Slate article -“Spin the Tale on the Donkey“- points out the hypocrisy of Republican claims that the mid-term election results reflect the country’s desire for a “change in course.”  They issued no such proclamations, of course, after they were soundly thumped in the elections of 2006 and 2008.  No, the Republicans stomped their feet, pouted and refused to change course one iota.  Personally, I hope the Democrats do exactly the same thing.  I’d love to see the Dems vote en bloc against all Republican-sponsored legislation and I hope that President Obama has the courage to veto any bill they send to the White House.
