i know but i don't know

there's been a lot of chatter in the last few days about a last minute provision stuffed into the recent stimulus bill that allowed bonuses like the ones at aig to go through.

republicans have taken to the airwaves saying two things, sometimes literally in the same breath:
  1. this is what happens when you push through legislation so quickly that no one has a chance to read it, and
  2. this provision is why every republican lined up to vote against the bill.
see the problem with that argument?


  1. got any links for this?
    Love the new quotes bar on the right BTW.

  2. believe it or not christopher...i'm still lookin'.

    this wasn't a glib post, but an honest reaction to seeing eric cantor in an interview, and a feeling i'd gotten in the days leading up to this aig blow-up. but i'm honestly hard pressed to find any specific evidence of my point...
