I thought the Herald made some good points today,
Last year, voters got fed up with Republicans doing little in Congress other than running roughshod over Democrats, and turned them out of office. Democrats now in power have so far not done much better. We’re not seeing much progress in lawmaking. Nor have we seen Democrats do much reaching across the aisle.Now, I'm waiting for Rahm Emanuel or Mike Madigan to do some of those Obama spots.
Republicans naturally are irked at Dillard for the means he chose to praise a former fellow legislator. But Republicans — and Democrats — shouldn’t be missing the message in all this.
