OSU Prof. on Alito hearings.
This is a good article on the recent hearings for Judge-to-be Alito. It is a fine example of the "wheel spinning" our government is so good at. Lots of movement, but no progress. I am making this post not as instigation for a bipartisan blogger pissing contest. More as an alert to the fact that our government is dropping the ball yet again. I personally don't want one party to control all branches of the government. I don't care which party is inserted in the equation, just don't allow total control to fall to ONE party. If there is one party controlling all branches, I feel we loose some of the checks-and-balances we have. A loss of accountability if you will. At the same time when everything is split up, there seems to be an excess of the push and pull bullshit. This "wheel spinning" keeps us from making progress because both of the parties are jockeying for position and power, the whole time forgetting why they are there in the first place. Who here is ready to start our own political party?
