The Circular Firing Squad Is At It Again

When will they ever learn? Today should have been a great day for the Dems. Seriously.  The House of Representatives reconvened to help states insure that teachers, firefighters and police will stay on the job, and to make sure funds were available for Medicaid.  Of course, the naysayers on the other side of the aisle have no sense of decency and don't seem to give a shit whether or not their constituents are taken care of... but that whole story has taken a back seat to two other sideshow stories today. First, Charlie Rangel, he of the 13 ethics violation [...]

Today, not only did the California Assembly's Public Safety Committee consider it, they voted on and passed A.B. 390!
