The Democratic National Committee’s comparison of George W. Bush with Bull Connor, yet another dumb move
Just read this at The Anchoress
at the time of the police dogs and firehose incidents, CONNOR WAS A MEMBER OF THE DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMITTEE. He was the single Democratic National Committeeman from Alabama.
In the meantime, Chuck “Where’s the TV camera” Schumer’s illegaly procured a credit report.
Our disagreement with the Majority Leader is that, as the GOP cemented itself in power, he let incumbency become more important than the principles that elected him in the first place.
Mr. DeLay browbeat his colleagues–and kept the vote open for three hours–to pass a giant new Medicare entitlement that will bedevil taxpayers and Republicans for decades. Only two weeks ago, he declared that the GOP had cut everything from the federal Leviathan that it possibly could; a week later he was back-tracking under pressure from his own supporters. His worst ethics problems–at least until yesterday–had developed because he stood by as former aides and cronies made themselves rich as influence peddlers by invoking his name.
And that was DeLay’s dumb move.
Update Roger L. Simon‘s spot-on.
