I’ve blogged about this before.
I’m happy that this failed so dramatically today.
I have no idea whether or not Karl Rove’s calculations are correct about whether this stupid, symbolic, waste of time will help Bush and other Republicans more than it will hurt them; but it’s depressing to think that it might help them more. I’ve learned to expect very little wisdom or principle from politicians, but it’s a shame that so many of my fellow citizens motivate them to act this way.
On the bright side, I join Jacob Levy in saying “Yay John Sununu!”
I wish we had more senators who were reasonable on both economic issues and issues like this one.
