Sunday Morning Bobblehead Thread

Time to look at the politcos who frame the debate...

Dave Matthews Band -- Funny the Way it is

It is funny, isn't it? Here we are, with Egyptians taking to the streets to demand a more responsive and representative democracy and here we sit this Sunday, with the president that marked the end of representative democracy in this country still rehabbing his reputation. Funny the way it is, that we have activists and politicians fighting a death match over the rights of undocumented immigrants in Texas while the Texas legislature has taken the rights of American women to determine the fates of their bodies away from them. Funny the way it is, that Republicans' solution for everything is lower taxes, which has more than 40 years of documentation to not work, and yet, look at the preponderance of conservative voices on these shows. Funny the way it is.
