Crazy idea: Spend what you make

Republicans are from Mars; Democrats are from Venus

Went to a political forum tonight, and it was clear that Republicans and Democrats live in entirely different universes, view the world in diametrically opposed ways, don’t understand each other, like each other, respect each other.

What both sides need to do is stop talking to their friends, their base, and start talking to each other. Stop “reaching across the aisle” and just get rid of the goldurned aisle.

Obama’s done a nice job of doing that in his campaign rhetoric. We’ll see if he can actually put it into practice if he’s elected.

Update: McCain has historically been better at this than many of his fellow Republicans, but he’s been playing to his base more in the last eight years.
