  •  Except...both parties see partisan advantage (2+ / 0-)

    is looking tough vis a vis the other and going to the mat yet again.

    1. Republican leaders have to look like Second Civil War wannabes because otherwise the Tea Wees (who ARE Second Civil War wannabes) will have a mad and primary them out of existence.
    2. Democratic leaders see the advantage of showcasing, yet again that wingers are crazy people (see: Second Civil War wannabes), on premise that wingers = crazy = wingers losing elections.

    We have a major political party that is electorally committed to tearing apart the country whose elections it wants to win.  It cannot back down. Its voter, donor and philosophical basis as a party will not tolerate anything but total war, all the time, against the rest of the country. Because they've convinced themselves that they and only they are the rightful generators AND beneficiaries of all that is good in America.

    And that's the craziest crazy talk of all.
