crocodile tears flow from the eyes of downtrodden republicans distraught that the minority in the house doesn't get fair treatment

Dana Milbank's "Washington Sketch" today is about how a group of minority Congressmen -- Republicans, nowadays -- introduced a bill for minority rights in Congress. It sounds like for once journalists actually called these people on the bullshit they are peddling, asking them why the REPUBLICANS didn't do more to preserve the rights of the minority party when the actually controlled Congress.

As Milbank put it, these grandstanding Republicans were "outraged by Democrats' refusal to bestow on Republicans the rights that Republicans refused to bestow on Democrats. "


That said, I do think the Democrats should consider improving the rights of the minority party in Congress. But they should wait until they've accomplished some business first, such as repealing Bush's tax cuts for the rich.
