Why do we bother?

We busted our butts to get a Dem Congress elected last year and we finally figured the Chimp's bullshit was at an end. Yeah, fat chance:

The Senate bowed to White House pressure last night and passed a Republican plan for overhauling the federal government's terrorist surveillance laws, approving changes that would temporarily give U.S. spy agencies expanded power to eavesdrop on foreign suspects without a court order.


This and the fact that idiot Dianne Feinstein voted to confirm another one of the Chimp's activist judges:


But Sen. Feinstein had a meeting with Southwick and he assured her that he is "not outside the mainstream." Despite her promise to be "very, very cautious" with Bush's nominees, Feinstein voted with the unanimous GOP to send Southwick's nomination to the Senate for a vote. When she announced her vote, she conceded that she "could be wrong" and that "maybe" she's been wrong before.


Why the fuck do we bother? Is there a prerequisite to becoming a politician requiring them to be certified morons? Jesus H. Christ.


More from Paradox:


There is no other way to put it, and I implore with all the earnestness I can muster to our leadership (Party and netroots both) in Chicago and Pelosi’s office: something has gone horribly, horribly wrong in Washington DC, Bush is berserk and the Senate is boogying right along with him on FISA, along with all the horrors inflicted upon the country.


I'm starting to think they're all in it together.
