Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


Quote of the Day: Vacation tomorrow edition

Before leaving for my vacation, I leave you with this quote from David Broder's column talking about Republican incumbents and the trouble they may have this election year.

For all of them, service in this Congress has turned out to be a handicap rather than a benefit to their chances of advancement. The reason was explained in blunt terms by the Republican governor of one of the states where a congressman of his party is struggling for statewide office. "What has this Congress done that anyone should applaud?" he asked scornfully. "Nothing on immigration, nothing on health care, nothing on energy -- and nothing on the war. They deserve a good kick in the pants, and that's what they're going to get."

Displacedyankeedemocrat says the quote comes from the Republican governor of Minnesota, Tim Pawlenty. He's in a tough re-election to save his job, and is trying his best to distance himself from Republican governance in Washington.
