Failing to learn from the mistakes of others

C Richard Cranwell, hypocriteYou’d think after the big beating that the Republican party took over their moronic attempt at a loyalty oath that the Virginia Democrats would learn, but no. Marc Fisher writes here about the oath presented to caucus-goers at a recent event for selecting school board candidates. From the article:

But Arlington Democratic Committee chairman Peter Rousselot tells me that the loyalty pledge has been part of the caucus process for many years, and is in fact mandated by the state party.

You know, the state party. From the article in November, linked in this piece.

“It’s a slap in the face to voters, saying, ‘We don’t trust you,’ ” said C. Richard Cranwell, chairman of the Virginia Democratic Party. “It’s not surprising the Republican Party doesn’t trust the voters.”

I agree entirely, Mr Cranwell. A slap in the face.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
