Brilliant observation by Chait:"The reality is that minority parties have a strong incentive to obstruct the majority agenda -- indeed, the 2009-2010 Republican minority may be the first to fully recognize the degree to which support for the president on almost any issue would make him more popular at their expense, and act on that belief. A governing system that relies upon the minority party to subvert its own political interests is a system that requires some kind of reform."

Looked in my archives for something I'd written about Ted Sorensen--other than a few snide comments about his 1970 race for Senate (he came in third behind a fellow traveler with a brogue) buried in an unrelated article, this was all I found. Best part are the comments of Roscoe Conway in the thread. May his memory be a blessing. Youn N Eye (In Which I am Compared to Theodore Sorenson--sort of) | Room Eight www.r8ny.com
Even a busted clock buried in a pile of excrement is right sometimes--especially when they make the same points as I do (however, as is to be expected, The Post got the facts wrong--Paladino also has three lines) Third-Party Plague - NYPOST.com www.nypost.com
“Dear motherfucking fuck: Fuck you, you motherfucking fuck. And drop dead.”
I share the sentiment, even if I think the language too mild. Redlich’s wife’s letter to Stone on ‘horrific smear’ - Capitol Confidential UPDATE: This link includes Stone's response, which contains these reprehensible comments:
"Many in the Libertarian Party are aware of Mr. Redlich's "exotic " views on sex with teens. His comments are not erudite, or clever or cosmopolitan. As a man with two granddaughters I find them repugnant.
I reject the liberal media characterization of his offensive words as clever because I found them lascivious"
Roger Stone objects to lascivious? Who has less standing than Roger Stone to object to something lascivious? Xavier Hollander? Al Goldstein? Larry Flint? No, they are at least consistent.
Only the Boston Strangler and Jack the Ripper have less standing.
Maybe this is a clever Stone plot to drive outraged Cuomo voters to Redlich. It's almost working with me.http://www.nydailynews.com/blogs/dailypolitics/2010/10/a-message-from-mrs-warren-redl.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+nydnrss%2Fblogs%2Fdailypolitics+%28Blogs%2FThe+Daily+Politics%29

Some emailers think my position that Dan Donavan is too pro-Wall Street contradicts my endorsement of Harry Wilson for Comptroller.
Actually, it's the same policy: ACCOUNTABILITY.
I want government to keep an eye on the legality of what Wall Street does, and I want Wall Street to keep an idea on the fiscal probity of what the government does.
Tommy was my neighbor on Clinton Street, and once lent me a snow shovel, so I guess I'll have to forgive him--but it will not be easy. A McMahon for Donovan? - Maggie Haberman www.politico.com
