@ThePlumLineGS @ggreenwald We all own this: the system isn't working for most people & so they're looking to blow it up.— Ron Fournier (@ron_fournier) February 24, 2016
Don't get Mr. Fournier wrong. He is very put out by Republican obstinacy
Republicans Won't Even Fake ItBut only because it momentarily screws up his Both Siderist grift by throwing off the rhythm of up his patter:
GOP leaders are skipping any pretense of working with Democrats or the White House.
Here’s the irony: This level of obstinacy makes it impossible to hold Obama and other Democrats accountable for their own role in Washington’s dysfunction. I haven’t shied away from criticizing the president’s leadership or the unyielding liberal front presented by congressional Democrats. There are no white hats in Congress.You know, I used to think that David Brooks was the heavyweight champ of never suffering ever tiniest professional or financial consequences for perpetrating this kind of openly ridiculous, Both Siderist bullshit year after year. But honestly, for sheer, relentless, robotic persistence -- for sheer mindless dedication to "dying with the lie" -- I'm starting to think that America's Sad Clown of Centrism is a real comer.
