Of course, the MSM will try and treat this story as an example of Republican obstruction and vindictiveness but the attorney generals of 7 states talking about the possible illegality of the "Nebraska compromise" (and, by implication, its unconstitutionality) is nevertheless an excellent move.
For no matter how the Dems and their pals in the press try to spin this thing, the story inevitably sheds greater light on the sleazy bribes, backroom deals, mean-spirited extortion and power lust that is running the Democrats in Congress.
This AP story, for instance, made the Yahoo Headlines. That's a lot of readers who were informed of the facts surrounding Ben Nelson's remarkably crass sellout.
And the greedy self-interest which stains the modern Democrat party, one which completely overrides fair play and democracy, is even more pronounced by imbecilic confessions like that of Jim Clyburn, the South Carolina Congressman who serves as the U.S. House Majority Whip. Clyburn's response to the complaints of vote buying was merely about making sure he gets his share. "Rather than sitting here and carping about what Nelson got for Nebraska," Clyburn said, " I would say to my friends on the other side of the aisle: Let's get together and see what we can get for South Carolina."
Really? Is this what we voted for? To send pigs to Washington to get the most they could from the public trough?
Senator Clyburn may think it's comic to thumb his nose at the Constitution and rip off the American taxpayer. And Ben Nelson may think himself clever for selling his superficial pro-life principles for Medicaid bucks. But this move by the state attorney generals will help the public to see what Washington has become under Barack Obama -- more secretive, more perverse, and more disgustingly irresponsible than ever.
Spread the word.
