The Status Quo in Washington

What is IT about people who say things that are so quintessentially about them and they apparently don’t see that.  I was watching Larry King for a few minutes.  Up front he had Paul Begala, Michelle Bachman (R-Hell)(R-MN), and two others, political strategists: the Democrat, a woman (Hilary), the Republican, a man (Larry) – all discussing the attempted bailout of Wall Street.  (Chris Rock will be up later, but I’ll be back at work.)

The man had the nerve to say that people (that’s the common folks like you and me out here somewhere in America) aren’t so much angry at the Democrats or the Republicans.  They – or we – are really angry at the ‘status quo’ in Washington.  Now – I’m sorry – who’s been the “status quo” in Washington for the past, almost, eight years?

Really?  Funny thing listening to Washington Journal this morning AND yesterday morning on CSPAN, people were mentioning names and one specific political party and it wasn’t so much about the Democrats as it was about the free market-loving, deregulation happy smug asses parading around as ReThugs hoping to bilk the American taxpayers – yet again.
