  •  When Republicans were in power, (9+ / 0-)

    and they forced Democrats to take embarrassing votes, it made Democrats look bad... for taking the embarrassing votes.

    If Democrats avoided the embarrassing votes by voting with Republicans, that also made Democrats look bad... for capitulating to Republicans.

    Now that Democrats are in power, when they structure a vote so that 155 Republicans end up casting a heartlessly cruel 'no' vote, that also made Democrats look bad... for playing politics with people's lives.

    Of course, when Republicans look bad, that's just 'dog bites man'.
