The cop-out for progressives is to declare a pox on Capitol Hill and give up. That's what the anti-democratic zealots in Washington want us to do, and why their attacks on the majority of Americans become ever more shrill. But the louder they squeal, the more we know we are closer to our goal. If the progressive movement perseveres and picks its targets carefully, Congress will be forced to end this war.
We go to war with the system we have, not the system we wish we had. It's starting to work, and we're going to win against the Bush moronarchy.
