Maria is right – you probably haven’t seen clips of this townhall or read about it anywhere else, certainly not in as well-written a description as she offers.
Go read the whole entry. Again, just because we can engage in ways that push the envelopes of decency and legality, doesn’t mean we should.
I also think that the lesson of the Massachusett’s Democrats who thought they were outsmarting former Gov. Mitt Romney by changing the law so that he could not appoint anyone to a U.S. Senate vacancy should be a lesson to everyone who makes stands on pure personal politics, rather than on reason and what’s best for the stability of our social and political contracts. Difference of political ideology is one thing. Setting law that could exist in perpetuity solely to gain or maintain political advantage will come back at you in the end.
