Needed: More Smoke Filled Rooms

“This backroom deal-making model went out of fashion after Watergate, but it is much better than what's come since.”
David Brooks on Sunday.

That’s what I “miss” about politics. Now it’s all about political correctness, litmus tests, and being “right” on certain issues. Gone are the days of believing that government can be a force of good in our life, but that to make an omelet you have to break a few eggs. It’s like the old sausage analogy. Come to think of it, I'd like some sausage with my omelet.
