27. Or, they could just tell the truth.
Your little script about politics and political games is very nice. However, wouldn't you think it a novelty that might just work, if the Dems would just tell the truth for a change instead of doing the fancydancing around the issues and patronizing the American people?

Of course, that would smack of democracy and be very dangerous.
