Good riddance to the 112th Congress

By Michael J.W. Stickings

As Think Progress notes, "it will go down as one of the least productive and most partisan legislative classes in all of American history."

And that's saying something.

Now, not to excuse the many spineless Democrats on Capitol Hill, but obviously it's the Republicans who are the problem.

They're the disloyal opposition -- a party of right-wing extremism, uncompromising absolutism, crushing obstructionism, shameless opportunism, bigoted theocratism, and blatant anti-Americanism (for all their claims of patriotism, they always put party/ideology before country, as in their opposition to economic stimulus and raising the debt ceiling, for example).

The 112th was indeed very bad. Just don't expect the 113th to be much better. Remember, the GOP still controls the House, and the crazies are still very much in control.
