Republicans, I am ashamed to admit, whine and take it.
I know it is cliche around here to evoke "the changed tone", usually with the rolling of the eyes. But maybe the Pubbies tone-changing "strategy" will ultimately bear fruit.
The general public hates bitter screaming partisanship. They think it is a waste of time, and does not get the business of the country done. In a way, the general public probably misunderestimates the value of hardball partisan strife. But Democrats have certainly been caught looking like hot-heads more often than Pubbies and that trend continues.
