Democrats are pretenders: They pretend to care about law while applying it only to their adversaries. They pretend to care about rules while breaking them for their own ends. They pretend to listen to Christians while pledging to allow more murder of the innocent. They pretend to care about our soldiers while denying them money for equipment they need to finish their job.
Sometimes, though, they stop pretending.
It was high drama at Capital Hill last night. National Review Online catalogs the Democrat management of a vote which would have furthered the case for denying any agriculture subsidies from going to illegal immigrants. The gavel came down and the measure passed, but then Democrats were allowed to continue entering votes after the gavel had ended the voting. When the votes were all counted, the amendment to the measure was voted down, courtesy of the late-voting democrats. Congressman Eric Cantor called it an “Outrage on the House floor.”
