I really don't care if Nancy Pelosi sits on John Boehner's lap. The pretense of civility is not civility. The basic premise of representative democracy is rejected by many Tea Party activists. How often have they declared on this forum that The United States is not a democracy. How often has the GOP used the filibuster in the last two years to block a majority vote on legislation we NEED.
It will be nice if the POTUS is allowed to speak without being called a liar by some elected lunatic. Far better, if we actually work together with constructive compromise rather than indulge in divisive rhetoric.
