Wait...we elected Democrats, right?

This article makes me wonder just how much has changed.

Remember when we were told that indicting important people for these crimes would make Republicans stonewall health care reform? Well, now that Democrats themselves have fucked up said reform, I think it's high time we penned arrest warrants for Yoo and Bybee and Cheney and all those other folks who happily and shamelessly created a culture of torture within the executive branch of government.

I'm only half-kidding. The recent Democratic retreat on health care, in my opinion, will cripple the party's ability to pursue any sort of meaningful legislative agenda for 2010. So if we're to lose, we may as well lose big. Drag those torture-happy Republicans into a court of law and let the testimony begin! Let's lose not 25 House seats in November but 80, and really get our money's worth out of the loss.

Gov Rendell did a great interview on WHYY (Chamber of Commerce). He made some great points about gov't and its role.

Ed Rendell is my favorite Democrat. He is smart, motivated, and quite articulate when it comes to explaining how government should work.
