Ol' Herb just opened the lid and gave the Republicans a standing ovation.
What the Rethugs don't get, regardless of whom they blame, is that they own this mess. Every little bit of it (the war[s], the economy, the environment). They can yell and scream, point fingers, and call names; it doesn't matter. At this point, I think even the most obtuse among us get it (well, except for the 20-odd percent who've gone over the edge, but then a 20% minority never won anything).
