  •  This isn't the best we could have hoped for. (10+ / 0-)

    The best we could have hoped for is Harry Reid carrying through on even a single threat that he's made.  The best we could have hoped for is Harry Reid doing what is best for his party, and for the country, and not what is best for "the Senate" and the fraternity thereof.  

    The best we could hope for is Reid acting like a goddamned democratic leader, rather than a great compromiser.  I'm so fucking sick of compromises where Republicans walk away winking and smiling.  I'm so fucking sick of compromises where all Democrats walk away with is another day where the government doesn't dissolve, where Republican don't declare open civil war.

    This isn't a win, and don't you dare try to pretend it's one.
