GOP Collects Ransom; Hostage Released, Has Bleeding Anus
The two houses of Congress have come to what some satirists call a "compromise"--along the lines of "You give us all we want, and we'll say we want more." Our system has been broken by a gaggle of right-wing extremists behaving like a couple of teenagers who have broken into their parents' liquor cabinet.
It looks as though Republicans might achieve their goal, stated by their own leaders: ensure Barak Obama is not re-elected. Not create jobs; not strengthen the U.S. economy, not ensure the U.S. can remain a leader in scientific innovation and technology; just block Obama because, not only is he a Democrat, but also because he's, you know, different.
