“An idiotic, uninformed electorate eventually gets the representation that they deserve.” John Doe, May 20, 2009.
“WASHINGTON — Democrats in the House Energy and Commerce Committee have taken a novel precaution to head off Republican efforts to slow action this week on a sweeping climate bill. They are hiring a speed reader.”
The world will come to an end if this bill doesn’t pass before Memorial Day. Or something like that. “Never let a good crisis go to waste!” Or, some cynics might say, this preposterous Bill doesn’t pass if legislators bother to read it and give their intelligent constituents enough time to digest it, and then to urge their representatives to vote against it.
