I’ve been reading for what — a year or thereabouts? — about this huge Republican victory that’s coming tomorrow, in terms of the GOP taking over Congress.
And now, it’s everywhere I turn, as though most news outlets have just discovered that, duh, the party that doesn’t hold the White House always has big gains in the midterm election.
And the more I read it, the more of a feeling of dread I feel. It’s a very familiar feeling. When have I felt it before?…
… Oh, yeah — four years ago, when the Democrats took over the House…
I just wish everyone would stop pretending that it matters which of these two extremely destructive forces has control of our government.
Prediction: A year from now, the approval rating of Congress will still be below freezing.
Next election, I really need to consider running for something on the UnParty ticket. The UnParty’s time is coming, as more and more people realize how futile this back-and-forth is.
