Editorial of the day

Molly Ivins is one of the looniest of the moonbats. However, I found her editorial today quite interesting (link here). It shows that even those on the Left recognize the Democrats are as beholden to their base as the Republicans to their base. As Ivins says:

"I can’t see a damn soul in D.C. except Russ Feingold who is even worth considering for President. The rest of them seem to me so poisonously in hock to this system of legalized bribery they can’t even see straight.

Look at their reaction to this Abramoff scandal. They’re talking about “a lobby reform package.” We don’t need a lobby reform package, you dimwits, we need full public financing of campaigns, and every single one of you who spends half your time whoring after special interest contributions knows it. The Abramoff scandal is a once in a lifetime gift—a perfect lesson on what’s wrong with the system being laid out for people to see. Run with it, don’t mess around with little patches, and fix the system.

If Molly had stuck with this issue, she would have had a winner. Unfortunately, she had to go off into Moonbatland and attack the Iraq war and call for "Single-payer health insurance". But I know how hard it is for moonbats to stay on topic.

Instead, I have to give "Editorial of the day" to John Stossel for "The Inescapable Facts on Public Education". When I saw yet another Stossel column on education, my first thought was, "Again?". However, I would rather read Stossel beating the dead horse of our poor educational system than read Ivins ranting about Iraq.
