Yep, Rachel Maddow again. Her Rachel Re: segments are almost always excellent, but this one manages to both kick but and take names. For real. Hypocrisy is nothing new in politics of course, on either side of the aisle. But the nerve of the current GOP to be so vocally trashing (with help from FOX "News" and talk radio) the stimulus plan, while taking credit for it back home, is a little stunning. Or at least it is when it is all laid out for you.
Stunning and tedious really. There's no way to go through the list of these Republican legislators without it being repetitive. Stick through it if you want to hear all their names. But at least jump ahead to the final fourth of the video, where Rachel is just so dead on right in her plea to Democrats: knock off the optimistic talk of bipartisanship, and kill the filibuster. It makes no difference how good the policy, or even if it originated on the GOP side, they are not going to vote with you. Rachel does everything but tell them to grow a set.
