"[Republicans and Democrats have finally gotten together to hash out this state budget problem]...it is time to put aside politics and make good policy." -Rep. Mike May, Parker, CO.
Since when are politicians not devoted to making good policy? Oh, yeah, since we're so devoted to a two-party system of politicians running around and screaming, "Every man for himself!"
I always thought, while I was in France, why anyone would want a political system that takes longer than twenty minutes to explain to a person who hasn't grown up with it. I dream of a world when one of the things to make our lives the most complicated would be the simplest part of them.
