In a country that thinks the worst possible sports outcome is a tie, is it any surprise that the idea of compromise in politics no longer seems desirable by anyone?
For a while it kinda seemed like the two parties were offense and defense on the same team, but now they feel like very different teams. Both view the other as the “away” team.
Everyone used to be in the middle class, but now nobody is. Now everybody is out of sorts and looking for somebody to get mad at. They were mad at the bankers for awhile, but then lost interest in that because of attention span issues. The bankers are pretty happy about that and are now busy trying to undo all the regulations that were just passed, knowing that we have a short attention span. They are laughing all the way to the, well, the bank!
