Two Good Things

Two Good Things Under Speaker Boehner

I hate to say it but two good things have already happened since Republicans took over yesterday:

  • When they divvied up the Constitution to read, they made a perfect choice and gave the 13th Amendment to John Lewis: "Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States." Would have been more powerful if preceded with the 3/5 Clause, though.

  • And Boehner's not a Birther: "The state of Hawaii has said that President Obama was born there. That's good enough for me."

    Still, Iowans will have one point of confusion. US House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), meet Iowa House Ninority Leader Kevin McCarthy (D-Des Moines)...
