Most of you are probably aware that the Tea Cups are turning up the heat on the Republican leadership. Special report: Stuck between the Tea Party and a hard place | Reuters Max Weber said that politics is the slow boring of hard woods but they seem to want to use a shot gun. How do you reason with the unreasonable? What do you say to someone who's position seems to be limited to "I'm right, you're wrong. FUCK YOU!!!" Life doesn't work like that, politics certainty don't work like that. They may have had some targeted, limited, novelty success in the last mid-term election but in the end humans are tribal beings and would prefer to walk the path of the reasonable peace. James Madison once said "What we are attempting to create here is a harmonious system of mutual frustration" No on gets everything they want but they don't seem to want to hear that. Its going to be a cold winter if they burn the house down to make a point.
