Sunday ritual

Every Saturday night our family eagerly awaits Frank Rich (pre-published the night before the Sunday edition), a voice of sanity and intelligence that always seems to cut through all the shit and get right to the point. This week is no different and I know it is a digression, thematically, for this blog, but I can't resist:

"This G.O.P., a largely white Southern male party with talking points instead of ideas and talking heads instead of leaders, is not unlike those 'zombie banks' that we’re being asked to bail out. It is in too much denial to acknowledge its own insolvency and toxic assets. Given the mess the country is in, it would be helpful to have an adult opposition that could pull its weight, but that’s not the hand America has been dealt."
