    Would be nice if we could eventually drown his extremist organization in a bathtub.

    Well, he's already lost his mind. Repubs are so crazy with the people they latch onto and hold up as leaders.

    I hope so, lobbyists as powerful as he should not be allowed to exist.

    I'm daring to dream.

    Over at Fark, somebody made the point that yesterday's voting results may have been a wake-up call for the Republicans.

    Can't we call it a wake-up kick in the groin instead? I like that image better these days.

    As his grip on reality has been long gone.

    Perhaps there’s a chance House republicans will realize they have a responsibility to the Nation as a whole, not just to those who voted for them.
    On Radio Moscow this evening I heard a similar line of reasoning by a GOP operative: republicans will need to have something to show after two years; right now they have nothing.
