Phew - it has been another long hiatus but now I feel revitalized after a few days off for the holidays. Obviously there have been two big issues of late, and with this and the next few posts I'm hammering away at 'em: the aftermath of the Newton massacre and the so-called Fiscal Cliff. First up, an ode to political cowardice and amorality, something that is most definitely a bipartisan defect.
Nothing dulls one's moral compass, one's sense of right and wrong like a little campaign cash, and Democrats are just as guilty as Republicans for their spineless kowtowing to the NRA. All their blather about yet another national "conversation" is just an evasive maneuver to avoid accountability for their own significant contribution to yet another massacre of innocents.
