It's Going to Get Worse

Politico: "Think Congress is a big, dysfunctional, polarized mess? Just wait: It's going to get worse."

"The House is certainly the most extreme illustration of what's to come. Moderate Republicans are basically extinct. Conservative Democrats, who not long ago accounted for more than a quarter of the party in the House, are getting wiped away, too -- and will likely number a little more than a dozen after November."

"The Senate, once the chamber of deliberation and reason, is getting its own extreme makeover. Moderates such as Maine Republican Olympia Snowe and Democrat Ben Nelson are bolting an institution that barely resembles the one they entered as idealistic deal makers."
