Why bipartisanship is bad for the U.S.

Everyone in Washington likes to talk about “working in a bipartisan manner.” Every time I hear a Democrat talk about bipartisanship as if it is some sacred object, I just want to hit my head against the wall.

Glenn Greenwald explains it very well.

    Gah! Friggin’ yahoo “daypass” doesn’t work very well.
    Dammit. I couldn’t even read it by logging into yahoo. Is it MS’ed up already?

    I think that sometimes compromise, or “working in a bipartisan manner,” is necessary to constructively govern.

    -At times it may be necessary to temporarily accept a lesser evil, but one must never label a necessary evil as good. -Margaret Mead, anthropologist (1901-1978)-

    At the same time, I think our Democratic congress-people could do more to assert themselves, too.

    -No man is justified in doing evil on the ground of expediency. -Franklin D. Roosevelt, 32nd US President (1882-1945)-
