Partisan Consensus

On Meet the Press, David Gregory posed the obligatory bipartisanship question, asking John McCain whether Republicans and the Obama administration have heeded his call for compromise and the bridging of differences. McCain's response: "I think neither side, perhaps, has done it as much as maybe we should" (emphasis added). Despite his hedging, McCain eventually dropped the qualifiers. "There was never any serious negotiations over the stimulus package . . . Now there doesn’t seem to be any on the budget. Those are all party line votes. There’s not the negotiations." McCain should know by now, there's always bipartisan support for partisan hackery. How else could the duopoly parties sustain their ridiculous and incessant calls for bipartisanship?
