Excellent analysis. The left has the advantage because they've had years of learning from their union thug buddies about how to negotiate with a gun to your opponent's head. It is long past time we learned.

May be time for Republicans to learn, but the question is whether or not they will (or can) learn?
Somewhere, there’s a whiplash lawyer who runs his law office out of a van down by the river who watches the congressional Republicans attempt to negotiate the fiscal cliff crisis and has to turn his head away. John Boehner and his inept coterie of GOP establishment cronies have made every mistake in the book. It’s professionally embarrassing.

Frankly, if these hacks were my associates, they’d be on a street corner with signs reading “Will litigate for food.”

Congress is famously full of lawyers, but what people don’t understand is that it is really full of bad lawyers. Good...
