The Gander and the Goose

Washington Post columnist E. J. Dionne Jr. asks:

"Should a temporary majority of 50.7 percent have control over the entire United States government? Should 49.3 percent of Americans have no influence over the nation's trajectory for the next generation? We are deciding whether one ideological orientation will hold sway over all three branches of government ... Today's Republican majority, based on Bush's 50.7 percent of the vote in 2004, has no inherent right to exercise near-total control over that "most powerful branch."

Funny. So... Bush's 50.7% majority is not good enough to let him appoint a conservative... but Clinton's... umm... 49.2% minority was enough to let him appoint a liberal ACLU attorney.


Fish in a barrell folks. Fish in a barrell. This is why I don't blog on liberals much. Its just to damned easy.
