For those wondering why Republican operatives in Alabama think it's clever to make ludicrous charges and demonize Democrats, look no further than the example of the President, who said yesterday regarding the homeland security bill (quote courtesy of ABC's "The Note"), ""The House responded [to what Bush wants], but the Senate is more interested in special interests in Washington and not interested in the security of the American people." Now, look: I know that, more than some people, I long for a political debate that is actually a good-faith reasonable debate on policy. And I know that I am more attuned to the horribleness of Republican actions that depart from that model, than to Democratic actions that do the same. But this is outrageous, and it shows why many of us, myself included, don't trust the President farther than we could throw him.
