Christmas in Washington


It really is the height of cynicism in the Senate right now as Democrats insist Republicans are the scrooges who are keeping everyone in D.C. while America celebrates Christmas — that is, unless the lack of socialized health care doesn’t kill them before the 25th (cue to Harry Reid last night). It would take a real leader on the Left to say, “How about we all go home, rest, and listen, and come back and tackle this with in January?” That, of course, won’t happen, because people will know more and like the not-so-great Reid compromise less.

It’s all a great shame.
