"Last night, as I lamented the state of America's governance -- that we have come to be ruled by a 60-member tea party coalition that, at most, comprises only about 14 percent of the House yet somehow overrules the rest of the House, the Senate and the White House -- my husband referenced his Polish immigrant heritage and recalled the story of how political maneuvering hastened the collapse of Polish republic. The first Polish republic, that is. The story bears a striking resemblance to our current political nightmare-cum-reality." [editor's note: The irony here is that he laments "minority rule" taking control, which is about demoncrazy, not republics! - SAT] (08/03/11)
