“Who is the new guy?” and the “old guys” are bastards


Ed Morrissey aptly notes:

After the midterms, that last line may become the new catchphrase on Capitol Hill: “Who’s the new guy?”

The only problem with the “old guys” via Erick Erickson at RedState regarding earmarks in Congress:

But it was all for show, or so it seems. House Republican Whip Eric Cantor (R-VA) declares earmarks will be back in full swing once the GOP takes back Congress.

Cantor said, “Republicans may roll back their ban on earmarks, as long as the spending items have ‘merit.’”

“Merit” is a focus grouped way to obfuscate the reality that Eric Cantor and the House Republicans are perfectly happy to be wallowing back in the mud pit once they get back in charge. If the earmarks actually had merit, they could withstand the entire appropriations process, including review by committee, etc. instead of being added in.

In other words, the GOP has learned nothing and forgotten nothing.

Isn’t that the truth.  Live by the earmark, die by the earmark, Mr. Cantor. 

We must remake our party. Sans the politicians, it seems.  Related: The Other McCain, “Wake up, GOP!”
