…competitors, and find ways that they can show how pro-Hollywood and anti-business SOPA was ( Republicans hate Hollywood), while at the same time also funding his liberal opponents. A Democratic victory in Smith's district is unlikely, but his Democratic opponents probably hate him enough to make some noise, and I think it's extremely likely that Texas is full of younger Republicans who would love to take his place. There's got to be at least one who understands the Internet. …

One reason Democrats and Republicans so rarely agree on anything any more is that the social dynamics of like-minded groups dramatically encourage polarization; but another is that the two parties increasingly represent entirely distinct nations. When Sarah Palin referred to rural America as "real America," she echoed and confirmed a growing Republican identification with, and habitation of, exurban areas. In Red America, most people live outside of the city, education …

…messages across. It will be "kabuki theater, with the White House trying to prove Republicans are obstructionists, then "expressing outrage when Republicans refuse" to back the bill.
