    Good toon.

    Now quick! All you Repub and Demo Kool Aid drinkers start pounding out those comments about how it’s all the other side’s fault!

    In the House, that should be two elephants fighting each other.

    But this time, let’s change sides.

    See It’s Even Worse than It Looks by political scientists Mann & Ornstein, who say this is the worst deadlock since the 1850s — so the picture of Lincoln is very appropriate. And the evidence does in fact point to the extremism of one party over another.

    Yeah, I agree with my old friend motivemagus. First, Mann & Ornstein’s book is definitely worth reading. And second, Markstein is giving into the fallacy of parity here. Put simply, the biggest problem in Washington right now is the Republican Party. (And it started before the Tea Party.) (Though the Tea Party has made everything monumentally worse!)

    WE THE PEOPLE just sit and watch and accept it all as “normal.”
