Doug Ross, on the Democratic leadership’s reaction to being told that from now on they’re going to have to demonstrate a working knowledge of the US Constitution and how it permits their particular bills if they want to introduce said bills into the House:
Say, I wonder if Nancy Pelosi would approve? Oh, wait. I don’t give a crap. The American people kicked her dimpled butt out of the Speaker’s seat and back into Coach.
I am about as unsympathetic as Doug is, myself. Sure, it’s embarrassing to treat grown legislators as if they were not particularly bright children; but not nearly as embarrassing as when said legislators demonstrate that such treatment is warranted.
More to the point: elections have consequences. And may I say that it is a pleasure to be on the other side of that saying, for a change?
