F*** "bipartisanship", really
What's the name for the pyschological syndrome where the process is more important to an individual than the results?

I used to work for a man who thought that dotting every i on a storeroom requisition was worth the downtime it caused when those parts didn't make it into production on time. I keep thinking about that every time I hear Joe Lieberman whining about the need for "bipartisanship."

Or maybe he just likes to suck up to the powers that be. I call it brownnosing, but I'm sure there's a clinical name for that one, too.

Whatever, Joe, you're one sick bastard. Give up already.

1. With Joe, bi-partisan = accommodation.
Screw that...Give no quarter, do not compromise with these criminals. Republicans need Democrats like Joe Lieberman to give them cover for their agenda. Without these accommodationists, we are a stronger, more energized opposition. The time for bi-partisanship was over in 1992. If Republicans want to make peace, they can become Democrats and help us take our country back from the organized crime syndicate that is also known as the Republican Party.

2. 30 yrs ago "bipartisan" was a good thing
Now we need pit bulls that will fight back by any means necessary.
