10. Oh goody! Another inside the Beltway blue ribbon bipartisan commission.

The easiest way to make it look like you are doing something, while actually doing nothing.

Months of stupid hearings and speculation, culminating in a hundreds of pages long report with lots of cool charts and graphs and policy recommendations that can never pass Congress, a day or two of media coverage; then the report ends up in John Boehner's recycle bin.

Cue up the bipartisan commission regulars! James Baker! Vernon Jordan! Erskine Bowles! Sam Nunn! Lanny Davis! We have work for you!
