Illi-noyed: State Government A Bad Joke

I’m not sure if this qualifies as “breaking news”, but the state of politics in this country is, in a word, ludicrous.

Whether you want to assign that blame to two political parties that seem to grow more extreme in their partisanship, while simultaneously entrenching themselves in positions that do not lend themselves to compromise (which, last time I read a book about governance, is a prerequisite of getting things done), or on the ineptitude of the politicians that we send to Springfield and Washington to do the people’s work, the fact of the matter is that anyone within spitting distance of a newspaper knows that our current state of affairs is a broken mess of nonsensical garbage.
