Lyons: Blind party loyalty will never see the light
Anyone who’s been watching what’s happened in recent weeks in both Washington, D.C., and Springfield should be astounded at what government is unable to accomplish.
Call it laziness, stupidity, stubbornness. Blame the media, Lovie Smith, violent video games or whatever helps you believe that you understand it better. But it’s actually even simpler than that. The reason is the frenzy of hyper-partisan politics.
People who cling to party regardless of the argument, facts, circumstances and, in some case even ideals, have always baffled me. It’s as though there’s a part missing in their brain, and I expect scientists to someday discover tissue scarring in the cerebral cortex or some other scientific explanation for this psychological disorder.
