“It is useless to attempt to reason a man out of a thing he was never reasoned into”

Jonathan Swift
"The Democrats have moved to the right, and the right has moved into a mental hospital." - Bill Maher
"The city is crowded my friends are away and I'm on my own
It's too hot to handle so I gotta get up and go

It's a cruel ... cruel summer"

This sexist rant goes far beyond deciding the confirmation of Judge Sotomayor (which is a done deal at this point). It goes directly to understanding the schism in the Never-Less-Grand, But Increasingly Old Party. In the absence of power, there is now a direct conflict brewing between the "merely power hungry" wing of the Repubs and their dinosaur wing. The dinosaurs are clearly not ready to sink into the political La Brea tar pits without first flashing their cuspids, and it could end with the dismantlement of their alliance with the MPH. I'd like to be the first to suggest that they use MPH as their new party name. Holy crazed batcrap! Wait! That could be the dinosaur party name!
