Can't anybody here play this game?
— Casey Stengel
Today I've hear more than one Democratic congressman say that Democrats are eager to work with Trump on a major infrastructure bill. Not one of them has emphasized that President Obama & congressional Dems have, for years, begged Republicans to pass a major infrastructure bill; that Democrats have been denied at every turn; that Republicans deliberately and maliciously deprived millions of Americans good-paying construction and construction-related jobs throughout; that Republicans now cynically talk as though a vigorous infrastructure program is a rather unique Trumpian idea, and some sort of previously nonexistent opportunity.
Jesus Christ. Is it any wonder that Democrats went down last week? They don't know how to play the goddamn game.
