Think Republicans learned anything from their whipping at the polls last November? Think again.
From the New York Times:
Comments by Republican senators on Thursday suggested that they were feeling the heat from conservative critics of the bill, who object to provisions offering legal status. The Republican whip, Trent Lott of Mississippi, who supports the bill, said: “Talk radio is running America. We have to deal with that problem.”
At some point, Mr. Lott said, Senate Republican leaders may try to rein in “younger guys who are huffing and puffing against the bill.”
Lott's comments are indicative of the elitist, out-of-touch, country-club mentality of too many D.C. Republicans. It's what put them in the minority last year.
And with this kind of garbage still coming from them, apparently congressional Republicans are comfortable being in the minority.
