Next on CNN: the Earth is round
Jun 30th, 2007 by Ken Hagler

It’s the peo­ple vs. the gov­ern­ment, new poll sug­gests. “It is a sad com­men­tary in Amer­i­ca today that many Amer­i­cans have lost faith in their gov­ern­ment,” Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Arizona, said. He added, “Amer­i­cans don’t believe that their gov­ern­ment is rep­re­sent­ing them, is act­ing on their behalf. The polls show it.”

The new dynam­ic is the peo­ple ver­sus the gov­ern­ment. The immi­gra­tion bill is a per­fect illus­tra­tion. It was a bipar­ti­san bill, sup­port­ed by Pres­i­dent Bush and by most Democ­rats in Con­gress. Why didn’t it pass? Because the peo­ple didn’t like it. [CNN]

Or course it’s always been the peo­ple ver­sus the gov­ern­ment. The only thing new is that the peo­ple might final­ly be notic­ing.
