Well, of course.
The only thing I really disagree with Billy about is that it will be "unprecedented." It will just be a general continuation of the general disaster that’s been underway for longer than anyone can really put a finger on.
In spite of all the talk of gridlock, that particular sentiment is not what did the republicans in tonight. The republicans did the republicans in. They’ve had every opportunity over twelve years to stand on principles of individualism, private property, small government, free enterprise, and freedom of association they claim to hold. They just didn’t. Not a single one I’m aware of — and certainly not firmly or uncompromisingly. They still might have lost tonight, but at least they could have packed up and moved out with some measure of dignity and respect — rather than in the shameful, disgraceful, and embarrassing manner they’re tossed out on their asses now.
There’s part of me that hates to see it, but they surely deserve it. I just can’t see it any other way.
