Par­ti­san pol­i­tics start­ing al­ready?

The Morning Call (Sunday) - - TOWN SQUARE -

The elec­tion is over and a few of the win­ning can­di­dates have been mus­tered in. U.S. Rep. Su­san Wild had her swear­ing-in cer­e­mony Tues­day.

The Morn­ing Call ar­ti­cle quoted Elena Kowal­ski, a precinct com­mit­tee per­son from Beth­le­hem, as say­ing she hopes that Wild “fights ev­ery­thing from this ad­min­is­tra­tion.”

Now isn’t this a fine ket­tle of fish? Here is a fresh­man con­gress­woman, and one of her sup­port­ers is al­ready call­ing on her to fight ev­ery­thing sub­mit­ted by the ad­min­is­tra­tion.

What hap­pened to reach­ing across the aisle? If all of the new rep­re­sen­ta­tives feel this way, then the next two years will be noth­ing more than one failed op­por­tu­nity af­ter another. In short, noth­ing will get done and the vot­ers will be left hold­ing the bag.

And if that isn’t enough, we may have to put up with another two years of the Wicked Witch of the West (Nancy Pelosi).

What a sorry state of af­fairs. Pol­i­tics of any kind stinks to high heaven.
