I don't know if it's 1933, 1958, 1981 or

Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, but I do suspect that Senator Minority Leader Mitch McConnell thinks it is 2005 and the GOP still has the whip hand over the whole damn world.
From the looks of things, McConnell and his gang are gonna walk away from the stimulus package, part of that is the lead the House GOP took in voting NO like a well trained pack of teachables, part of it just plain self destructive stupidity on the senate GOP's part. When you are out of ideas, you usually make the mistake of listening to the loudest dumbest most simpleminded blowhard in the room, hence the new truculence from out the Republicans on Capitol Hill regardless of the White House and it's quest for bipartisanship.
Whatever the motivation, the only question remaining is, are they gonna filibuster the bill? My guess is yes, but I'm a pessemist, I don't see a lot of bipartisan potential in the congressional wing of the GOP, they are all crooks, sky-grifters and men weirdly hung up on a very silly rhetorical brand of manliness that was last glimpsed in the westerns of William Boyd.
If that is the case I sure hope that Harry Reid has some good solid Lyndon Johnson style tricks up his sleeve he is gonna need them.
