Will the perfect be the enemy of the good?

A couple of weeks ago, the Instapundit posted his pre-mortem for the GOP, which led to many others doing the same. One of the lists that spread wide was Bill Quick's list of why he wouldn't vote Republican. I disagreed with his list a couple of weeks ago, in a rather sarcastic take on how people were focused entirely on the negatives as opposed to the positives.

Today, the Baseball Crank looks at the 109th Congress and sees the successes. I recommend the whole piece, but the takeaway is this:
Not such a terrible job for two years' work, two years in which much attention was consumed by natural disasters at home and war abroad and during which the House leadership underwent a significant mid-course reshuffling. More can, and should, be demanded of future GOP majorities. But much less should be expected if those majorities don't survive November 7.

Again, the point being, if you're a conservative, and are concerned about conservative policies, it's difficult, if not impossible, to see how your concerns are addressed by a Congress led by Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi...
