Politics is the art of the impossible till election is around the corner. If you wish to see politics based on ideology here is something:
‘In a show of rare bipartisan agreement, the Senate voted on Monday to begin debate on the bill by huge margin, 94 to 1. More than 15 other House bills, mainly focusing on creating jobs by curbing government regulation, are languishing in the Senate, with little prospect of a floor vote.
But with congressional approval ratings now at record lows – in the single digits – neither party wants to head into 2012 elections with a record of near-zero legislative accomplishment, especially on a topic as critical to voters as jobs.’
There were tea parties organized throughout the country for what? Not for helping the nation to get the colossal economic fault line corrected; the rich poor divide is more than ever widened. I bet there shall be two nations with two voices and their language like in the days of Babel shall make understanding the other impossible. The GOP uses language and tactics to stymie the bills from being passed in the House so elderly, veterans and unemployed could be helped. No the GOP had to stick to their guns and they have to make the Obama Presidency one term affair. But how long they can keep it up?
Elections are in the offing.
These shows how puerile is idea-based party system.
As I began politics is the art of making the impossible seem possible.
Here is a well known piece of Bob Dylan number quoted by The International Perspective in their blog and fits with my post.
Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don’t stand in the doorway
Don’t block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There’s a battle outside
And it is ragin’
It’ll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin’
.(Bob Dylan)

Here is a piece of news that every American ought to read with care:
Hurricane Irene and the recent East coast earthquake were directed at America’s politicians, according to a statement from Michele Bachmann
The Minnesota congresswoman and presidential candidate told an audience gathered at a Shriner’s temple in Sarasota, Fla., Sunday that God was trying to communicate a message about fiscal responsibility via the two recent natural disasters. From the St. Petersburg Times:
I don’t know how much God has to do to get the attention of the politicians. We’ve had an earthquake; we’ve had a hurricane. He said, ‘Are you going to start listening to me here?’ Listen to the American people because the American people are roaring right now. They know government is on a morbid obesity diet and we’ve got to rein in the spending.

For some, Bachmann’s comment this weekend immediately brought to mind televangelist Pat Robertson, who infamously claimed Hurricane Katrina was God’s punishment for legalized abortion.29-08-11 (.(ack: Rachel Rose Hartman | The Ticket)
Does not the American voter worry that his or her vote could send some stupid candidate to the highest office?
I know now why the USA is hit without let up by bad news. The stupidest and the least deserving fellows enter politics and they entertain notions being a member of a political party would provide the necessary camouflage to merge among the like minded politicians. They beat the drum, wave their flags and make appropriate sounds so they would not be caught on the wrong foot. Then these caterpillars of the nation announce their intention to be pillars of the Capitol Hill. Pat Robertson tried to find a reason why Hurricane Katrina made a landfall and made the underprivileged of the land suffer all the more. According it was due to the abortion law. Only they were too poor even to pay for abortion!
National Police also got into the act blasting some of these huddled masses to kingdom come. For they looked ready for mayhem! The police found their teeth chattering and body steaming from dehydration and they looked to mischief ready. So the law acted in self-defense.This time around Bachmann found God giving her the presidential address well before hand. Of course she was to use it only when she was elected.
Never have I laughed so loud for a long time since I heard George W. Bush speaking how God charged him to ride into the streets of Baghdad- and not Laredo, mind you,and save the Nation. After many convulsions of conscience and economic malaise I laughed now and said to myself, ‘If the nation is going to take Bachmann’s word as gospel truth I am making a trip to the USA. I have a business deal to close. A fellow by name Perry is interested in buying Brooklyn bridge, ‘as is where is’ condition. Perhaps it might be like stealing the candy off a baby.’Since I heard he is also a Presidential candidate I cannot wait.
