The Blood, It Boils
A Texas teacher suspended indefinitely because someone thinks he's a liberal, and an atheist.
The Republican war on science continues.
Dress code, schmess code; or, Andy Card is full of sh*t.
Bipartisanship means working with these people.
Among all of the above, the lesson seems to be this: elections DON'T matter. Overwhelmingly, voters went for a person calling for bipartisanship and for working together to solve problems. But between arcane Senate rules, which have been bastardized to require 60 votes for anything to pass, and the fact that the Republican party has descended into regionalism that assures the reëlection of entrenched idiots, voted for by witch-hunters, nothing has actually changed. A 59 - 41 election would be a landslide. In the Senate, it means "failure," the thwarting of the will of the electorate, the braying of failed politicians as if they'd actually won.
Indeed, the blood boils. I gotta stop reading.
