Our political invective is in sad decline

Oh, for a more vigorous and spirited debate, like we had in the early days of the Republic. John Randolph said of opponent Edward Livingstone that "he shines and stinks like a rotten mackerel at midnight."

Lord knows that we have targets aplenty, and some of them hope to win their party's primary today.


Vote 'em out. Every rotten mackerel.


Remember, the problem isn't the Democrats, and the solution isn't the Republicans.

Well, you got it half right. The problem is the Democrat's, and the problem is the Republican's. Underneath the exterior sheen and verbose bluster, they're both animals of the same corrupted beast.

If McCain wins his primary, I hope the Democrat wins. The end resuslt in terms of policy won't be much different, but the incumbent will be gone.

Wow.. a picture of McCain doing a partial facepalm!

Ain't THAT calling the kettle black!
