He Doesn't Get It

The voters gave myriad reasons for the Democratic victories in 2006 and 2008. They were tired of being given unworkable governments, tired of the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, tired of eroding civil rights and politicized civil service. The list goes on and on.

What did Ass. Minority Leader Glenn Grothman take away from all of this?
I just think they were voting against the Republicans because of the
decline in the stock market.”

“But,” he said, “that is the hand we were dealt.”

Poor, poor fellow. You can feel the sorrow, the unremitting remorse. To be cut low by the slings and arrows of plundered fortunes.

If only someone could have foreseen. If only someone had been there to protect us from the Republicans in charge. Perhaps he should be criticizing Paul Ryan and Flyin Jim Sensenbrenner. You know. The ones who've been abetting the dealer for the past eight years.

It's good that Grothman is absolutely without introspection. It leaves the door that much more open for 2010.
