Kicking and Screaming: Matt Bai speaks about this so casually, like it's politics as usual in America. The way it's been for decades ... and decades ... and decades. Truth is that it is politics as usual. Too bad. Apparently, Mr. Bai thinks there's nothing wrong with Wasserman Schultz's manipulation of the process and that Priebus should have been better at it. I'm not saying that 'old guard' politicians who know when, where and how the wheels of politics are greased are of no value to getting things accomplished, but when it also involves the intentional disregard for the will of the people ... something is wrong. I wonder if any of those 'best and brightest' bulbs in the country's political machinery have ever considered the condition of the country might just be a reflection of their own corruption.
