Line of the Day: 2011-01-14

I don't completely agree with the whole column, because I think this country actually has more than just two harshly opposed sides, and I still do think compromises are possible, especially if the extremists driving the GOP lose some clout, but this is pretty good:

Commentators who pine for the days of civility and bipartisanship are, whether they realize it or not, pining for the days when the Republican Party accepted the legitimacy of the welfare state, and was even willing to contemplate expanding it.
