Quote of the Day
It shouldn’t be hard for Republicans to see why they’re in danger of losing their majority. Voter anger over immigration and spending has manifested itself in citizen groups patrolling the border, challenging them in primaries, and bussing reporters to the sites of shameful pork-barrel projects. Going back to the story of the failing marriage, one spouse has known for a while what the other one’s up to. The source of her anger is clear. Maybe the wife doesn’t want a huge bouquet and an apology. Maybe she wants her husband to quit screwing around.
– David Weigel in Reason Online, comparing the Republican push for the Federal Marriage Amendment to a cheating husband trying to make up to his wife after he’s been caught cheating. Hat tip: Instapundit.
