The Senate is scheduled to test the presence of hypocrites in that august body today and the pundits predict that there will be about 39 of them. All from the Republican party, oddly. The vote is a test of narcissistic tendencies as well- we’ve got ours now you find yours! The bootstraps metaphor.
Righteous men will rise to speak of the terrible burden that will be placed on future generations of yet-unborn citizens while throwing millions of our living, breathing citizens under the bus. These same righteous men will rise again several months from now to speak of the terrible, unspeakable burden that will be placed on the most wealthy Americans, the upper one percent, if the Bush tax cuts are left to expire at the end of the year.
Ah, the righteous among us.
