What McJoan says

Daily Kos diarist McJoan has been keeping close taps on the health care reform fight. This is a great comment from her Meyerson on the "Solonic Six" 07/29/09:

[Harold] Meyerson picks up a lot of what we've been talking about here in the blogosphere on this debate, not the least of which is that this Republican party isn't one worth negotiating with. The only thing these Republicans care about is destroying Democrats. Since the Reagan Revolution, the GOP hasn't been about governance, it's been about transferring as much public wealth as possible to a few private hands. They've succeeded beyond their wildest dreams in making a handful of people exceedingly wealthy, but they've also shown the American people that their politcal philosophy is utterly bankrupt. And 2006 and 2008 proved that the American people get that.

Democrats should not be in a position of trying to enable a Republican party that has been so abjectly repudiated by the American people, a Republican party that has proven time and time again that it is utterly incapable of governing because it has absolutely no interest in governing.

"It is the logic of our times
No subject for immortal verse
That we who lived by honest dreams
Defend the bad against the worse."
