The more things change

“In the South it is supposed that more government than is expedient is desired by the North. In the North, it is believed, that the prejudices of the South are incompatible with the necessary degree of Government and with the attainment of the essential ends of National Union.”

— Alexander Hamilton, 1792

Nader Accuses McAuliffe of Suppressing Votes – Virginia Politics –

Yeah, trying to pay Nader to go away in 2004 is really going to be unpopular among Democratic voters. You know how we love Nader.

I have to apologize to Jeff Sessions

Historian Michele Bachmann Blames FDR’s “Hoot-Smalley” Tariffs For Great Depression | TPMDC

I always thought he was the dumbest person in Congress. I guess I was wrong. He’s still pretty dumb.

Arlen Specter for Senate 2010

“I have decided to run for re-election in 2010 in the Democratic primary.”

He says he won’t be an automatic vote for cloture… but you have to think that he’d be a whole lot more likely to vote for it. If nothing else, he doesn’t want a big primary fight, which is what will happen if he acts too Republican.

Really, that’s all?

Gov. Blagojevich taken into custody – 12/09/08 – Chicago News –

They start arresting Democrats. Now, Blagojevich, from everything I hear, is massively corrupt (and unpopular) and I am not coming to his defense and not putting this post in the “Crooked Republicans” category. But there’s a troubling trend here of outgoing US Attorneys going after Democratic elected officials.

UPDATE: Gosh. If he was really soliciting bribes campaign contributions to fill Obama’s Senate seat, they may have arrested him just in time.
