#rsrh I suspect that it isn’t the bailouts fading.

Ben Smith to the contrary, if Pew is finding that fewer people are angrier at the government now than there were in September of 2010 there’s a really simple potential answer for that: it’s because people went and threw out of office a lot of the sitting politicians that were making them angry in the first place.

I mean, I’m less angry at the government these days, and for precisely that reason.  Speaker Boehner isn’t doing everything that I tell him to, but then Speaker Pelosi didn’t do anything that I told her to; and while Harry Reid is still Senate Majority Leader he’s suddenly not able to casually legislate whatever damfool idea comes into his head.  It’s a little hard to stay as ticked off as I had been, under those circumstances.
