And the Quote of the Day

Henry Waxman is clearly taking his demotion as chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee very hard.  Today he unloaded with this:

“The Republicans want us to repeal the 20th century, the New Deal, the Fair Deal, to turn us back to the robber barons running the country, and to eviscerate the environmental and other regulations to protect public health and safety, and to cut spending in ways that would be very harmful to people who rely on government.”

I’m sure he meant to include “return to Jim Crow segregation,” until someone reminded him that Jim Crow was a Democratic Party speciality.
