The fabled 14 Senators who struck today’s historic capitulation are going to be the toast of the media for days to come. We’ll get the pleasure of seeing them smugly talk about pulling us back from the brink of disaster, and the mainstream media is going to go nuts.
These folks had better enjoy this attention. Because there are a lot of us out here who are as mad as hell. And when this little lovefest is over, and it’s back to politics as usual, we’ll still be here, and we’ll still be mad as hell.
So go ahead and bask in the praise, Lindsey Graham. Soak in the applause, John McCain. And all the rest of you turncoats . . .
Enjoy it now. We’re not going to forget this. Not now. Not ever.
