Hey, let's give the other guys a chance!

I'm tempted to say American voters are stupid.  And many certainly are, but the real problem behind politics in this country is that American voters suffer seasonal amnesia, occurring every 2, 4 and 6 years, when they habitually forget who did what, when and how.

Every news outlet I read today -- and the drumbeat started months ago -- is that the Democrats don't even have to bother showing up in Washington anymore because they are all going to lose in an epic, biblical tsunami of Republican victories.  Just like Yogi Berra said:  "it's like Chicken Little all over again!"

Or words to that effect.

So, let's see if we can't analyze this for a moment.  Americans blame Obama, Reid and Pelosi for not fixing Humpty Dumpty in less than one election cycle.  Too little egg left?  Not enough glue? Too few chefs?  They don't care.  So what do they propose to do about it?  They're poised to re-seat the same guys who shoved the big Egg off the wall in the first place!  F*cking brilliant!!

Perhaps American voters aren't simply forgetful or forgiving...maybe they're just mavericky, like those Scrabble players who throw caution to the wind when cornered and decide it's better to lose a turn if it means they can turn all seven of their letter tiles in for a brand-new batch.  Worth a shot, right!?

What could go wrong!?
