Political Football

Roger L. Simon writes about the inanities of partisan politics.

If you do it, it sucks! If we do it, it rules!

Yep, that about sums up today's politics. Republicans lost their minds in the 90s and now the shoe's on the other foot.

You know, it wouldn't bother me nearly so much if I didn't have to listen to people tell me in all seriousness that Their Side is going to have to start fighting dirty now (see here for a couple good examples). Start fighting dirty? We are talking about American politics, right?

Ironically, Simon is one of the most partisan Bush-backers in the blogosphere.
