Hello, hypocrisy?

Now, I’m a liberal – a Green Partier when I’m feeling idealistic, and a Democrat when the reality sets in – and I was pretty excited about the House dems’ 100-hour plan. I did have reservations about the means, an entirely partisan push for legislation without any notion of cooperation, but the ends (such as raising the minimum wage) seemed just.

I was even more excited when dem-backed campaign finance reform legislation passed, making things much tougher for corporations and lobbyists to schmooze politicians. But not 24-hours later, it seemed the democrats had already forgotten the aims of the new bill, and held a grand fundraiser complete with $1000-a-plate dinners and celebrity performances.

Great laws aside, what we really need are some upstanding politicians.
