A picture is worth a thousand words

This chart, by Batocchio at Vagabaond Scholar, is uncannily accurate. So much of what is kicked around Washington is simply inadequate to our nation's challenges. A lot of it is batshit insane. When the Democrats run the show, some good things can happen in the midst of many disappointments. When the Republicans call the shots we are thoroughly screwed. Maybe if we could elect a few more good candidates, to pull their colleagues into the sweet green spot, we could motivate voters with something a little better than "the lesser of two evils" argument. Looking at the very small area of bipartisan overlap (only some of which is not entirely evil!) should give all of us a reason to lower our expectations for the coming two years.

I'm so glad you reproduced this chart, Ulysses. I'm going to save it until 2012! LOL
