"You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time."
-- Abraham Lincoln
For the many who fell for the '..change you can believe in..' slogan of 2008 and the multitude who hope and pray for 'Tea Party' changes in 2010, you are all consigned to the same lifeboat which is full of holes from the deck of the Titanic.
For myself I prefer to aspire to the group not covered by Lincoln's famous quote, as follows: "You can fool some of the people none of the time!"

The political consensus is following the 2010 election, the Tea Partiers and the GOP establishment will breathe a sigh of relief and celebrate their victory and our two-party monopoly system of government will continue as before. A GOP House majority will checkmate Obama and the Democrats in the Senate and political stalemate will result. Many conservatives and a few Washington pseudo-libertarians will claim stalemate is better than a Democrat landslide but they will be wrong.
