One of the most popular people in all of New York City was...Bernie Madoff. Popularity was based on fake schemes and fake enrichment programs that never built any real friendships or real loyalty. They only build horrible fake relationship that last as long as the money flows. Is Washingtonians any different than Bernie Madoff? Does dependency equal loyalty? There is still hope. But only if we engage those that are being used and show them a better way. The human condition is what it is. Dependents don't like being...dependent. They can spend money on drugs to distract themselves and con them selves into thinking they like it. But the human condition makes it impossible for people to completely embrace it.

Let's not sugarcoat it: we got our teeth kicked in on Tuesday. Sure, we added governorships and held our ground in the House, but we went backwards in the Senate and lost to an out-of-touch, incompetent, petty man who centered his campaign around Mitt Romney's bank account and Big Bird. We didn't get beaten by Bill Clinton in a great economy; we got beaten by another Michael Dukakis in the midst of a terrible economy. On the upside, if people have ever wondered what Jimmy Carter's second term would have looked like, then they're about to find out.
