The ineptitude and spinelessness of the Democratic Leadership would cause me to do more than get alternatively angry and despondent. It's pathetic. And what really sucks is the fact that so far, President Obama has not exactly cracked a whip...unless it's Rahm trying to do it to the base...i.e. those Congress-critters who think like the vast majority of the country, let alone the base.
As Atrios said, we elected the Democrats to get something done -- not just because they weren't as crazy as Republicans.
