Words of Wisdom to Democrats: You’re Screwed

December 17, 2009

From one Democrat to the others: “you’re screwed.”  So goes it in Washington these days if you happened to ask fellow Democrat, Representative Capuano (who replaced Ted Kennedy in Massachusetts) returning from the campaign trail and offering words of “wisdom”:

Larson asked Capuano, who finished in second place, to share the wisdom he learned on the campaign trail.

Capuano took to the microphone, looked out at his colleagues and condensed what he’d learned into two words. “You’re screwed,” he told his friends in the House, according to one attendee. The room’s silence was broken only by soft, nervous laughter.

Soft nervous laughter?  Hmm, no hysterics?  I think I would be hysterical.

But with 1 in 5 Americans losing health insurance in the last year and 1 in4 American children getting food funding from food stamps (1 in 8 adults), the current political situation is no laughing manner.
