No Rest for the Weary

I was hoping with the election over I could take a rest from being PO'd at politicians, but no such luck. It's clear we voted out the bastards to make way for more of the same old crap. This whole earmarking hysteria is just a silly drama for the benefit of the illiterate masses and all it's going to do is increase congressional gridlock. Of course this may very well be the Republican's intent... bring Washington to a grinding halt and then blame Obama for it in 2012.

In any event, any talk about deficit reduction that's not accompanied by a determination to increase taxes and cut defense, social security, and medicare spending is just more of the same old political BS.

Shame on us all for buying into it.
