Interesting Political Development
Democrat Senator Bayh recently announced that he is not seeking re-election. While many on the Republican side are quick to claim that this is because he is in trouble with regards to getting re-elected, Bayh is saying otherwise. Bayh had some harsh words for the entire political system.
“There’s just too much brain-dead partisanship,” Bayh said in a nationally broadcast interview Tuesday. He said the public will continue to harbor hostile feelings toward Congress “until we change this town.” He also said that “the extremes of both parties have to be willing to accept compromises.”
Even more interesting…
But he also said the American people could deliver “a shock” to Congress by voting many incumbents out if the institution doesn’t curb its divisiveness. Bayh said voters could simply decide they want to vote out people they believe are too partisan and said Congress should change its rules of operation “so that sensible people can get the job done.”
Is he telling the truth? Probably not, but who cares.
