Just because the GOP fucked everything up doesn't mean you shouldn't listen to them when they tell you how to fix it.

Also, Republicans are complaining that they're being shut out of the stimulus conference negotiations, despite exactly three of them voting for the bills in both houses of Congress. If you wonder why the voting public distrusts Republicans on the stimulus, it probably has a lot to do with the fact that they wrecked our national car and are now holding a bandage to their head, demanding to drive the ambulance that they didn't want to call to the hospital they insist is full of filth and decay. It's the entire downfall of "bipartisanship" - at some point, you have to realize that Republicans can only be worked with in the capacity that they themselves want to work with others, the same way you don't put the kid who throws shit at people's heads in with the other kids for art time until he learns how not to do that.
