Sunday Talk: New and improved

This just about sums up today’s guest list on the Sunday talk shows…

Daily Kos

When Vice President Joe Biden successfully (?) negotiated a bill to stave off fiscal disaster (for a couple of months, at least), it really was a big fucking deal.

After all, the 112th Congress—arguably the worst Congress in history—wasn’t exactly known for its bipartisanship; yet the bill ultimately passed the House and Senate with support from both parties.

Unfortunately, that same bipartisan spirit didn’t help the victims of Hurricane Sandy or domestic violence.

But, no worries.

The 112th Congress is now a thing of the past, and the 113th Congress looks poised to finally solve the nation’s problems—by repealing Obamacarehating on teh gheysending birthright citizenship, and taking additional hostages.
