"Remember The Golden Age of Bipartisanship?"

The New York Times tracks its remarkably short lifespan:

Remember the Golden Age of Bipartisanship? The one that lasted from approximately 11 a.m. on Thursday — when Senators Max Baucus, Democrat of Montana, and Charles Grassley, Republican of Iowa, released their ‘‘Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment Act’’ — to 4:00 that afternoon, when Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid crumpled it into a small ball, lit it on fire and tossed it in a garbage can?

But of course, trends move fast in Democrat-controlled DC; last year during the inauguration, President Obama’s pledge that “The time has come to set aside childish things” was Rahmmed into oblivion even before he spoke it.

Meanwhile, the Oba-Stimulus finally has a mascot. Meet Sissypus! (Take your time clicking over — she’s not going anywhere, but she’s certainly getting there in a hurry.)
