8. Meh. People who spend too much time posting...

and too little learning aren't to be taken seriously.

Here are two political polar opposites who have for years worked together in the background to get something accomplished, as difficult as it is to get anything done in Washington. It's a good article, not just about these two, but about how things get done after the fundraising, fights, and other bluster and bullshit we hear about every day.

<...>
"Esther Olavarria, a Democrat, left Cuba as a child, worked as Senator Edward M. Kennedy’s top immigration lawyer and now holds a post in the White House. Rebecca Tallent, a Republican, left suburban Arizona and became Senator John McCain’s chief of staff, briefly advised Sarah Palin in 2008 and is now a top policy aide to Speaker John A. Boehner of Ohio.

But if there is any way to unlock the immigration stalemate in Washington, colleagues say these two might find it."
