Bipartisanship sounded like a great idea back during the campaign, an idea we all supported and applauded Obama for striving for. Now, it’s become a dirty word to me and many other liberals. I’ve been trying to put my thoughts about it into words but Bob Cesca just did a far better job than I ever could. So here is a link to his take on the state of bipartisanship in today’s political climate.
I’m not so thrilled to announce that there’s a new kind of "porn" in town. What we’ve been witnessing during this health care reform process can easily be defined as "bipartisanship porn." It’s a display of bipartisanship so obscene and excessive that it borders on perverse. But unlike most of the other forms of porn, it’s not even fun to look at chiefly because it involves the shriveled mugs of Chuck Grassley and Max Baucus.
