The Great Orange Satan has a bone to pick with Senator Claire McCaskill (D):

Dear selfish, big mouth, grandstanding Democrats

One of the problems with some of you Democrats is that you all must have played ping-pong in high school rather than a team sport. I’d just like to give you a brief description of what a team is and how it is supposed to work…..

….So, Senator McCaskill, just because you don’t like the ads that Jack Conway is running in Kentucky, that is not an opportunity for you to grandstand about how sanctimonious and upright you are….

Yes, me musn’t let any opportunity to practice High Broderism on the Sunday cable talk shows be endangered by hitting the republicans in the forehead with the two by four of their own hypocrisy:

…A fetishistic attachment to bipartisanship for bipartisanship’s sake; reflexive adherence to false equivalencies, regardless of whether what one side says is patently insane…

Only in fiction:

…Because I’m tired of working for candidates who make me think that I should be embarrassed to believe what I believe, Sam! I’m tired of getting them elected! We all need some therapy, because somebody came along and said, “‘Liberal’ means soft on crime, soft on drugs, soft on Communism, soft on defense, and we’re gonna tax you back to the Stone Age because people shouldn’t have to go to work if they don’t want to!” And instead of saying, “Well, excuse me, you right-wing, reactionary, xenophobic, homophobic, anti-education, anti-choice, pro-gun, Leave It To Beaver trip back to the Fifties…!”, we cowered in the corner, and said, “Please. Don’t. Hurt. Me.” No more. I really don’t care who’s right, who’s wrong. We’re both right. We’re both wrong. Let’s have two parties, huh? What do you say?…

It’s their world, we only get to live in it and get to man the phonebanks, and walk door-to-door, and do literature drops, and eat crappy fried food for two months because every freakin’ waking hour during final run up to the presidential election two years ago was devoted to trying to change the freakin’ world so that maybe, just maybe, there would be a little more justice in the world.

Instead, we get this reality:

Ike Skelton Supports Repealing Health Care Law

POSTED: 7:14 pm CDT October 15, 2010

UPDATED: 7:50 pm CDT October 15, 2010

Missouri Congressman Ike Skelton, who voted against the health care law, tells KMBC’s Mike Mahoney the entire law should be dumped. He is facing a stiff challenge from Vicky Hartzler.

Change we all worked so hard for? Not so much.
