MICKEY KAUS: Republicans Are Right To Fear The Lame Duck. “This worry, when advanced by Republican commentators and pols, has been derided by Democrats as “straight out of the black helicopter wing of GOP thinking.” I dunno. Democratic politicians themselves, including Senate Majority Leader Reid, have talked up the possibility of lame duck action. If they lose lots of seats in November–even if they don’t lose either house of Congress–the lame duck will be their last chance to achieve many of their legislative goals. Those who’ve been defeated or who decide to retire will have little left to lose. Might as well be go to the gallows as historic liberal reformers. . . . Nothing makes me more paranoid, of course, than the left’s attempts to say my fears are paranoid.”
