Sirota on Bipartisanship

I’m not saying bipartisanship is necessarily bad. But I’m also not saying it is automatically good. If two people here in Helena, one Republican and one Democrat, help an elderly woman load her groceries into her car, that’s good bipartisanship. If those same two people then punch the woman in the face, steal her car, drive over her legs and leave her for dead in the parking lot, I’m gonna say that’s bad bipartisanship. In other words, bipartisanship is value-neutral, despite the Establishment’s best efforts to equate "bipartisan" with "totally awesome" in the public’s mind.
