I’ve been saying for a while that the Democrats need to get some spine in how they play politics. Here’s Matthew Yglesias saying the same thing. Here’s the point I agree with:

“Politics in a democracy isn’t a blood sport. We don’t kill members of the other side or intimidate them with violence. But it’s not a parlor game either. It’s serious stuff, and it deserves to be taken seriously. Republicans do a good job of that, and their approach to process “hypocrisy” merely reflects the fact that they have a reasonable sense of priorities.”
