yeah, let's hope for that!


I didn't even know they were still here. I'm living under a rock until '08 (there aren't any WMA's under here).


I believe they can be sent packing only if we find someone electable to replace them with. I haven't seen that person yet.

I've got a close friend who works in the State Department that's in this same situation. It's tough and I think a lot of people are having their own crisis of faith, toiling under those kinds of situations. Whenever I think my job stinks, I think of my buddy and it instantly cheers me up... which sucks.


Ha. In my earlier years, I worked for two Democratic Senators (who have gotten some notoriety for being shot into space and having emergency brain surgery, respectively), and I married a Republican. And not just any Republican, but a Republican campaign consultant. He helps get these jokers elected! Although he has never worked for any of the real fringy whackjobs. People always ask us how we can be married and make the requisite Carville/Matalin jokes ('How funny. We've never heard that one before.'), but we respect each other's opinions without agreeing with them. If that makes any sense.

Also, we have similar sensibilities when it comes to people who are 'good' or 'bad' at politics, in terms of strategery. Even if I don't like what his party is doing, I can respect a smart, clean move. It's like watching sports sometimes.


I understand the whole "good person in a tough place" idea in theory... but if I apply your reasoning to my line of work, it doesn't hold water. I believe in access to good mental health and rehabilitative services to all who need them, but I wouldn't work with a psychologist or physician who was deliberately hurting his or her own patients for personal gain even if he/she occasionally did some good.

And yeah, I too hope the damage is reversible for the sake of our kids and grandkids who will be living the after effects.
