Consequential Rage

Looks like this unpopular health care bill will pass, which helps to show the folly of anger. Voter anger at George Bush was such that we voted for Obama and a Democratic congress. That sort of blind fury was evident in one of my co-workers, an otherwise analytical & calm guy who said back around '08 that he would vote for anybody with a "D" next to their name as "punishment for George Bush." Smart, not. And certainly it can't be a surprise that a party whose House speaker wrote a book about power would, in fact, prefer to exercise power over prudence.
