Democrats begin purging insufficiently batty members. Lieberman is being kicked to the curb for the crime of wanting America to win in Iraq. Dingell is being purged for not wanting to devastate the economy as a sacrifice to manbearpig.
In media shorthand, Mr. Dingell’s approach to climate change is called “industry friendly.” Apparently, this is because his principles include words like “realistic” and “achievable” and “cost containment.”
Realism? Common sense? Economic Reasonableness? These have no place in the party of nuts.
