You’ve got to sing loud

I have squandered my existence
On a pocket full of mumbles such are promises

Paul Simon, The Boxer


Another bleak day in Democrat land.  Who was Lucy and who was Charlie Brown in today’s deal to end the government shutdown?  Mitch McConnell taunting Chuck Schumer?  Or Chuck Schumer taunting us?  How many times have we watched this play out, hoping to see the Democrats match their actions to their words, only to see them cave?

The Republican Party has moved beyond truth, beyond shame, beyond the last remnants of their morality.  We need something more from our Democratic Representatives than that they manage only to be better than that.

On Saturday we marched.  On Monday we mourn.
