Straight to the frigid realm of Lake Cocytus
The United States Senate has produced enough bullshit in 2009 to fertilize crops across the nation for the next several decades.
Wouldn't it be refreshing if they just admitted that they all work for the health insurance companies? We the People have never mattered in their calculus. We kid ourselves if we think otherwise.
I am not too happy with Article I. Section 3 of the Constitution tonight. Which is to say: emotionally I want to jettison the Senate altogether. Now that's an emotional response, not a reasoned argument, but I think y'all can see where my gut is coming from right now.
Put another way, I feel about Lieberman, Snowe, Baucus, Reid, and the Rahmster right now the way I feel about "Jingle Bell Rock" (which I had to listen to three thousand times today at work). Toss them in Lucifer's mouth in lowest ring of the Inferno with Judas, Brutus, and Cassius.
Oh, wait, those three betrayed their benefactors. The Senators have served theirs very well. They just have not served the American People.
Ship them to hell anyway.
My theology is better than this. Politically, however, I am eager to see these people voted out (in Rahm's case, fired).
And no latkes for Lieberman this year!
