Something Josh Marshall wrote yesterday is making the rounds:
But somehow the Democrats need to capture for people that the true horror of Republican rule would be every couple weeks having some cranky, seventy-something guy from the South pulling a freak out, screaming at the country to get off his lawn and shutting down the government until the veins in his forehead de-bulge.
How would that be any different than the Democratic majority we have now?
No, the true horror of Republican rule would be endless Congressional investigations into ACORN, into Obama’s birth certificate, into Van Jones, into Salahigate, into whether or not Obama still smokes, into the gender make-up of Obama’s basketball teams, into Joe Biden’s hair plugs, into the iPod Michelle Obama gave the Queen, and so on.
Truth be told, it would be very entertaining.
