Via Hot Air I found the story of how Congress neglected to send the entire Farm Bill to the President. Well, mistakes happen, but it’s amusing and frightening at the same time to read of the House Majority Leader (a member of the Democratic Party) explaining how it was a non-issue, that there’s no need for the President to actually see the legislation that he might sign or veto. It’s like a bad situation comedy plot, where the victim could easily escape the web of disaster if he’d just fess up and admit to a mistake. But no, that would be wrong. Far better to just embrace the concept of secret legislation.
But then again, why not? Hot Air seems to think that there will be a political price to pay, but I found that doubtful at best. The Democratic Party and their Old Media allies are defining deviancy down with an express elevator and I just don’t see any limit to how blatantly they can wave away political traditions and protections without penalty. Some may think there’s no way it could get worse, but I see no evidence of a bottom.
