More “Bipartisanship” Pablum From the Usual Source.

Sigh.  Oh it burns.  It burns.  I had a smidgeon of hope that there would be more news coverage of The Poor People’s Campaign Summit, but it is the political topic of poverty.  And who cares?  Correct?  I’m being extremly sarcastic, so bear with me.
