QueenNancy's New Clothes: Tyrant Chic

Well, well.

...Rep. Steve King, Iowa Republican, said in an interview on The Washington Times' morning radio show "America's Morning News" that Mrs. Pelosi and the Democratic majority had recently authorized an unprecedented change in House rules to curb the right of the minority to offer amendments to appropriations spending bills.

...Mr. King and other Republicans charge the rules violate the House's traditions for debate and are meant to protect Democrats from politically embarrassing votes.

We all know that the Democrats have the votes to pass whatever they damn well please. Now they KO amendment-offers?

The word "tyranny" comes to mind.
