Just when you think that Republican lawmakers can't become any more like whiny, hypocritical, infantile brats than they already are:
The ranking Republicans on two committees complained to the incoming Democratic chairmen Tuesday that the plans for the first 100 hours restrict their ability to participate. Several more Republicans are planning a news conference today to introduce a "minority bill of rights" they say is based directly on a plan that Pelosi proposed in 2004 while Democratic minority leader.Not only are Republicans, who virtually shut out Democrats from making any laws over the past six years, whining now that they will be shut out for four days, they are demanding that the Democratic leadership pass a "minority bill of rights" which Republicans refused to pass when they were in the majority.
The depths to which they plumb are so breathtaking as to leave me speechless.
