False equivalencies

Continuing from the last post, here's more on the topic.

See this article from Ornstein and Mann. As Ornstein noted in the previous article, it's not partisan to state the facts. Or in kennilingus, it ain't mean green meme either, especially coming from Ornstein. The following excerpt makes clear what one is dealing with in the current regressive party. And there's much, much more evidence contained therein. There's no constructive or 'trans-partisan' way to work with that. To think otherwise is as I noted in the last post.
"We have been studying Washington politics and Congress for more than 40 years, and never have we seen them this dysfunctional. In our past writings, we have criticized both parties when we believed it was warranted. Today, however, we have no choice but to acknowledge that the core of the problem lies with the Republican Party.

"The GOP has become an insurgent outlier in American politics. It is ideologically extreme; scornful of compromise; unmoved by conventional understanding of facts, evidence and science; and dismissive of the legitimacy of its political opposition. When one party moves this far from the mainstream, it makes it nearly impossible for the political system to deal constructively with the country’s challenges."
