Governance isn’t as easy as it looks, apparently. The Dems had to withdraw their little DC voter bill because of pressure from the Republican minority. The handful of newly elected conservative Dems are siding with the Republicans in trying to abolish the DC handgun prohibition. Stretch Pelosi is running around futilely trying to garner support for her “Pull the troops out and surrender” bill. What’s a gangsta to do?
Here’s your first clue: don’t pander to every interest group under the sun in order to get elected. Sure, it may get you into office, but once you’re there, all of those mutually contradictory groups are going to expect mutually contradictory results. Good luck trying to please everybody, suckers!
