What a great quote today, pulled off

This is from P.M. Carpenter's blog today.

Hard to say it any better:

The point of surveying our hopelessly dysfunctional government has been, of course, to make the additional point that such a government is unsustainable. It is inconceivable now to envision the White House, arm in arm with the equally discredited Congress, proceeding to operate for three more years with the level of legitimacy necessary in any nation shy of banana-republic status. Democratic governments rule only with the consent of the governed, and we have reached the point - or at the very least, we have reached its precipice - at which that legitimacy is virtually nonattendant.
