I Love The Sound…

of Republicans splintering in the morning! I have no idea whether this is good for us or not, but seeing Republicans going asunder does my heart good.

    It’s fun to watch anyone so self-righteous implode, isn’t it?

      c, it would be, if the probable consequences weren’t so dire… as the day wore on, I came to see that there is nothing good in this for any American, only doom and destruction, driven by utter fools.

    What is going on among the Republicans in the House is very similar to the conflict between the Bolsheviks and the Mensheviks among the Socialist majority in the Russian politics prior to the 1905 Revolution in 1917. Boehner is Martov leading the Mensheviks, while Paul Ryan is Lenin and Cantor is Trotsky. The goal of the Bolsheviks is the destruction of the government, while the Mensheviks are looking for power, not destruction.

    Every knows how well that turned out. BTW, even though Bolshevik means ‘majority’, that was awarded based on one vote and didn’t signify the actual membership of the party, as the Bolsheviks were actually the smaller of the two factions at the time. They made up for a lack of numbers with their level of insanity.

      Bryan, thanks for the historical context; I know far too little of the history of Russia, or even of the Soviet Union, though I was required to read Reed’s Ten Days that Shook the World for a class. Regrettably, that was before I thought history was important; I’ve spent much of my later adult life compensating for that bit of youthful indifference.

      I’ll be honest: I fear we’re on our way out, that the greatest days of America are behind us, and that… oh, if I could only believe otherwise… all the folly that is destroying us would have been avoidable, if only a few people had learned a few lessons from a few historical events. But they didn’t, and as inclined as I am to refer to the interactions of Obama, Reid, Boehner, Cantor and Ryan, and to some extent McConnell and even Pelosi, as a “circus,” real circus people have begged us all to refrain from casting such a negative and undeserved association over them. So I’ll just call it folly, and ponder how or even whether we can somehow live with it.
