This is the New Republican Agenda?
Wednesday, June 28, 2006 :::
Via the Hotline comes word of the House GOP's "American Values Agenda," a collection of bills that, on the surface, look as pinched, timid and narrow as the proposed Democratic agenda. But below the surface, it's even worse.
Rather than address their insatiable and even corrupt abuse of the treasury, or even making a slight attempt to revisit the Contract with America, the House instead will focus on symbolism, personal private behavior, and that greatest threat of all to the Republic, Internet gambling.
And all this time I thought the greatest evil out there today was the crushing lack of stylish child safety seats. Maybe they can address that in their next "Values Agenda."
