Contentions

Commentary of the Day

Will, on Peter Wehner:

It isn’t bipartisanship, it is post partisanshp that Obama advocates. Bipartisanship implies some kind of agreement shared by rival factions. Earmarks have largely been bipartisan. Obama believes in postpartisanship which has to mean no more partisan disagreements. The way this works in Chicago politics is the opposition ceases to exist and what lttle oppostion that does exist is destroyed by being left out or made to pay for everything. The Democrats have controlled Chicago for decades. There is no opposition in Chicago.

In eight years there will be little opposition in the country as the Congress (embellshed by two additional Senate seats from DC and the increasingly safe seats in the House) provides an alderman like atmosphere for the Democratic presidents. States like Texas abd Georgia will be forced to go along to get in on the redistribution required when gasoline, electricity, and healthcare force Texans and Georgians to get hand outs (tax credits) to pay bills.

Chicago has been post partisan for a long time and functions quite well after all Daley makes the trains run on time.
