I enjoyed this piece by Jane Young over on Pundit so much I wanted to share:
The brain in the White House appears to have been outsmarted by the brawn of a nude centrefold, as Obama’s filibuster-proof Senate number has been whipped away by a man once voted America’s Sexiest Man. You couldn’t make this stuff up….Having snatched the late Ted Kennedy’s seat faster than you could arrange a Cosmo spread, Brown has gone from wearing nothing but a smile to wiping the smile right off the face of the Obama administration…
The White House knows the numbers no longer add up, but Obama has only himself to blame for that by trying to be too inclusive of the Republicans. He should have known that consensus Republican-style means only what Republicans want.
Lessons for NZ politics? I hope the Maori party are paying attention!
