Herod the Great and Washington Bipartisanship

The midterm elections are finally over and the advent season is at the door. In Matthew 2 it reads, starting with verse 8 (speaking of Herod the Great), "...Go and make a careful search for the child. As soon as you find him, report to me, so that I too may go and worship Him."
If CNN and FOXNews were on-line then they would have ridiculed anyone who accused Herod as lying. We report, you decide. However, we all know when Herod ordered the killing of all children two years old or less in Bethlehem and its suburbs (Mt 2:16) it proved his previous desires to worship Christ were outright lies.
Now that the elections are over newly elected and entrenched congresspeople alike are falling over themselves in telling us they look forward to working in bipartisan fashion. Such statements remind me of Herod's statement from Mt 2:8. While some overlap in ideology exists between republicans and democrats, congresspeople mostly execute their duties in such a way to facilitate reelection, with concerns of appeasing pro-bipartisan constitutents being a distant afterthought. They report, they decide. We reelect more of the same.
