Zingers from Mr. Taranto « Humor »
Some may see an inconsistency in these Democrats opposing supermajority requirements while favoring the Senate filibuster in the other Washington. But the Washington state supermajority, unlike the U.S. Senate filibuster, was passed by the voters, so the Dems are entirely consistent in opposing democracy.
Well, never let it be said that the Democrats don't learn from their mistakes. In 2004 they had one message: We hate George W. Bush. It turned out most Americans liked George W. Bush, so now the Dems have a whole new message: We hate Tom DeLay. But whatever the merits of the case against DeLay, that "(House Majority Leader Tom)" in the USA Today piece shows why this is an unpromising strategy. DeLay-hate may be blue meat for the Angry Left, but most Americans are likely to respond to Dean's "arguments" by saying, "Tom who?"
