Sarah Silverman: Hey, Let's Fight Fascism With a Military Coup Against a Democratically Elected Government | Main | McConnell Delaying Sessions' Floor Vote Because His Vote As a Senator May Be Necessary to Confirm Mulvaney and DeVos
February 02, 2017

Republicans Again Thwart a Democrat Boycott By Rewriting Committee Rules to Allow Vote With No Democrats Present; EPA Designee Pruitt Recommended for Floor Confirmation Vote on 11-0 Vote

"Wyatt, will there be a fight?"

"I think there must be."

The Democrats are doing what their partisan base demands. I get that.

But I seem to remember the media and other allegedly-neutral institutions castigating Republicans for "obstructing" Obama -- as their own base desired. (And Republicans only partially blocked Obama, and they voted dutifully for all his cabinet picks.)

We cannot have a country in which one party is praised for obstruction and the other demonized.

If there are two classes of citizenship in a society, then we have no society. We just have the law of the jungle in which violence can be expected to solve many disputes.
