Ahhh…Ezra Klein, how much do I love your truth-speaking?


A lot:

The last year or so in American politics has been a tragedy. With unemployment over nine percent and underemployment closer to 16 percent, Washington has stopped talking about how to create jobs and turned its attention to cutting deficits. But it couldn’t get that done, either. Having agreed to focus on the wrong question, the two parties proceeded to disagree over how to answer it.

Perfectly nailed the political crap that has gone on for the past year in three sentences.
