"With the president having foresworn governing in favor of campaigning, and members of Congress paralyzed by ideological differences and obsessed with their reelection chances, the absence of legislators and lobbyists this Thanksgiving weekend -- they are among the estimated 42.5 million Americans who took to the cars, trains, and planes -- left the government no less a force than it will be when they return on Monday. And return they will: A visit to constituents is one thing, remaining permanently among them quite another. There is no Cincinnatus in this crowd." (11/26/11)
