A triumphal progression for the Democratic party, this ain’t.
The scene above of Republican Congressmen recognizing the will of the Sovereign People of the United States absolutely infuriated Rep. Barney Frank, in that special blustering whiny way that he has. I get the impression that the poor fellow is somewhat unused to actual populism. And is also perhaps perturbed at the way that actual populism makes the ersatz kind that his party peddles look, well, chintzy…
PS: Reconsider that vote, Rep. Frank. Because if you manage to push this debacle across the finish line tonight, you’ll be looking back fondly on this afternoon as being the last quiet, carefree day of the 111th Congress.
