You know what really deep-fries Gloria Borger’s Montana tendergroins?  Principles:

Most convinced of their task are the 87 House Republican newcomers. They are not awestruck by Washington. (A good thing.) They are not remotely humbled by the hallowed and marbled halls. (Still good.) Instead, they come with the arrogance of absolute conviction. (Dangerous.) Here’s the mantra: We were sent here to cut the budget, and that is what we intend to do. Period.

Damn politicians, doing what they said they would do.  Who do they think they are?

I’m guessing the left is ticked off because the conservatives newly elected are intent on keeping campaign promises, whereas Obama’s broken all of his (except, it seems, getting those energy prices to skyrocket).

“People who believe in their purpose, who have principles, who do not bow down and worship the “hallowed” halls of Congress, who are keeping their promises to the voters – why, I never! Next they’ll want to seal the borders and eliminate fraud in voting!” – Gloria Berger, a/k/a Hoity-Toity Maroon

The Change and Hope people thought they were electing in 2008, maybe?

They could be charged with election fraud for doing what they promised in the campaign. I mean, Please! What politician does that?

It would be like the drug company saying to the guy who walks in looking like the Wolfman: “No, we were serious when we said not to drink alcohol with our drug.”

When will the media realise that – for the tea party – a permanent government shutdown of all discretionary spending is precisely what they were elected to provide?

And, of course, not just “discretionary” spending but the big three on the welfare bill: medicare, medicaid, and welfare.

Which can only prompt me to respond that you are far, far too generous, good sir.
