The Supreme Court sent a Memo and everyone in DC got it
You're gonna hear the word Bi-Partisan more in the next few months than you have ever heard it in your lifetimes. Of course, you will only hear that word from Democrats. Legions of Democrats are sending out a smoke signal to Big Business saying "I'm one of you. Help me. They still think I am one of them. I can help you."

Name me one instance in the last 4 years when the phrase "bi-partisan" has been uttered by a Republican. I dare you.

It's like a secret handshake that isn't so secret at this point. I mean really. C'mon.

1. Mitch McConnell yesterday on Fox
"He's going to have bipartisan support" on his discussion of Bernanke's nomination for another term.

McConnell from a story in Politico about health care
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) pledged bipartisan cooperation on health care reform Wednesday, but he also laid down markers on policy that immediately put Republicans at odds with many Democrats.


John Boehner, 2 days ago...

Our statutory task force proposal provides the best chance for developing a truly bipartisan solution to this problem ... We cannot afford another commission whose product ends up on some shelf collecting dust.


They all use the word bipartisan. The problem is how the define the word.

At times like this, I like putting on a Spanish acent and quote Inigo Montoya from the Princess Bride.
"You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

2. Corporations have been giving money to politicians time past...
this is not not a new phenomena. What we need to do is to outlaw everything from from AIPAC and the NRA to soft money from lobbyist like Jack Abramoff. Let us not regulate the corporations alone without AIPAC and the NRA....they too have major influence of who gets elected and who votes for their proposed amendments.
