THE PENULTIMATE EFFECT OF TOP-DOWN LEADERSHIP
This guy is not wrong.
No matter what you think of Mike Madigan (and I happen to like and admire him), the net effect of the top down method of legislation is that the rank and file play poker, drink or chase women until the leadership of both parties AT THE TOP, disgorge something that the body is to vote upon.
As you probably know, "penultimate" means "next to last" The last stage is anarchy.
Anyhow, no matter your philosophy on these things, click the link and enjoy the show. I think the guy is saying what back benchers on both sides are thinking.
