So: How D'Ya Like (R) 'Governance'?

As a followup to the Beck item, we present a smoking-scathing review of some (R) popinjay's questioning of Cass Sunstein from the pen of a Beltway Confidential blogger:

...Of course, the human indignity of joblessness or less freedom resulting from those same regulations didn't quite come up because the hearing was quickly reduced to a GOP gabfest when Chairman Cliff Stearns, R-Fla., opened the hearing asking that Sunstein please stick to "yes" or "no" answers to questions from members for the sake of time constraints. In those few moments when Sunstein could get a word in...

Show trials and campaign speeches are last century's games Mr. Stearns, you dope.

Sunstein/Obama may be right or wrong about regulations. But we expect actual GOVERNANCE from the House (and Senate.) That includes serious discussion of ideas.

No, I'm not holding the (D) Party to those standards--they've proven that they're incapable of governance, too. See ObozoCare and Porkulus.

There will be plenty more instances of this sort of "Look At Me!! Re-Elect ME!!" stuff. Let's hope that honest DC coverage exposes it for what it really is.

Fiddles. Rome. Fire.
