Dick Morris has the scoop.
House Democrats lost considerable credibility yesterday when their opening session was cancelled so that members could attend the Ohio State-Florida State football game.
This is not a joke.
It is, however, a blunt metaphor for how genuinely out of touch the members of Congress really are. How many other Americans do you suppose were given the same perk? A day off because of an evening football game? And how many school kids would like to have time off to watch their own favorite teams? What kind of message is the House leadership sending?
Is it that they don’t get how bad it looks, or that they don’t care?
When Morris has to preface everything with “This is not a joke” you know it’s bad. Question: did CNN pause its 100 hour clock for this?
