For our foolish quote of the week we have nominated John Cornyn of
Texas, the Republican second-in-command in the Senate. Hopeful of explaining why the Republicans blocked a Democratic effort to increase the minimum wage, Cornyn asserted: "This [the D's proposal] is about trying to make this side of the aisle look bad and hard-hearted to try to rescue the mid-term election."
For heaven's sake, John. Where have you been? It's not the Dems that make you look bad. You're doing a pretty good job of it yourself. And for that, we must give you the Grumpy Abe Linguistic Lunacy (GALL) award without bothering to check Sarah Palin's latest gibberish.
