Commenter David Nangle at Charlie Pierce’s place has it about right:
This Congress should only be flown by pilots that don’t believe in flight. They should only be treated by doctors that don’t believe in medicine, or the efficacy of surgery. They should live in houses built by people that don’t believe in carpentry. And they should eat only food prepared by people that don’t believe in cooking, or the germ theory of disease.
Woulda, coulda, shoulda. All those Democrats who pitched hissy fits and stayed home in 2010 have allowed the creation of a disaster that has no serious chance of being stopped before the demographic trends that will turn up in the 2020 Census offer the possibility of redistricting sufficient to give voters at least the chance to cleanse the government in 2022.
The Crazy Caucus can do a lot of damage in a decade-plus. They already have. And don’t think they won’t do more.
