Good News – Bad News

The Good News, according to ABC [Australia], is that Bill Gates is finally going to tackle a problem that he knows a lot about: crap.

I have two minor concerns about this: plumbers may have to learn VBA to install a new toilet; and the damn thing might try to be ‘helpful’.

The Bad News, according to Charlie Pierce, is that ‘progressive pundits’ still don’t understand the Republican Party.

Nothing will make the GOP move left, because it is a religion, not a political philosophy. The core concepts can’t fail, only people can fail to properly carry them out. If Mitt Romney doesn’t win, it is because he wasn’t conservative enough. This doesn’t affect Ayn-Rand-Paul-Ryan who will be a leading candidate in 2016, as the GOP moves even further to the right.

Zero’s biggest problem is that he still doesn’t understand that the GOP won’t compromise, because that would be heresy.
