My what a wonderful little surprise I found this morning! On Friday night, before the details of the final deal became clear, [D.C. Representative Eleanor Holmes] Norton said, “We are in great danger of becoming bargained as we feared, despite my conversation with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid a few days ago, and the many […]

In a grim future of arrogant hyperbole, this Indiana legislator could well be our Emperor. It takes an overflowing amount of both for him to compare his petulant flight to Illinois to avoid the will of the electorate to soldiers sent to Afghanistan for fight in our stead.
