Yet more profiles in congressional courage:
The sentiment that fueled the rage during those Congressional forums is still alive in the electorate. But the opportunities for voters to openly express their displeasure, or angrily vent as video cameras roll, have been harder to come by in this election year.
That’s from a New York Times story, detailing how Democratic congresscritters are seeking to avoid angry constituents by avoiding all their actual constituents. Smart, yes?
Avoid them now, and they’ll for sure remember you at the polls in November. Let them vent, and they might — might — relax enough to stay home in the Fall.
But if anyone anywhere had been counting on our Democratic majority to take some action other than the stupid and self-destructive one, hasn’t been paying attention the last few years.
