I find it intensely sad that not a single Republican saw fit to break ranks from their bankrupt ideology to vote in favor of the economic stimulus bill yesterday. Not one. This lockstep, party-line performance serves only as a stark demonstration of the absence of independent critical thought in what should be a loyal opposition. Had there been some evidence of debate and disagreement amongst themselves, this would at least have been a sign that there was still some life in this moribund beast. How can anyone trust such mindless, unquestioning unanimity? A bad deal for the country, whichever way you look at it.
Have a great weekend!
