La Plus Change….?

La plus change, la plus le meme chose. With apologies to the French instructors who struggled with me in high school and college for the spelling, this phrase is one I always loved to say because it sounded cool and it was true…the more things change the more they stay the same.

After the emotional election of Barrack Obama last month we have gotten back to normal. The conservatives are complaining about the liberals complaining because so far the transition team has not been liberal enough. Of course if the transition team was announcing ‘far-left’ appointments, the liberals would be complaining about the conservatives complaining because the transition team is too liberal in its decisions.

In the aftermath of one unnecessary war, one war in need of shoring up, and an imploding economy, it’s nice to know there are some things we can count on as we go into the new year, among them the fact that the left will never be right and the right will never be wrong.
