Senator McConnell on the Fairness Doctrine
Posted by: Jon Henke on Friday, June 29, 2007

Senator McConnell has been a champion on this issue, and it's good to see him communicating his position like this...

As his former New Media guy, I can attest that Senator McConnell has been one of the good guys. He encouraged the Senate Republicans to pay attention to, engage and communicate with bloggers. He made the call to take the Senate Republicans into a new and unfamiliar environment, and I believe they're better off for having done so.

More like him, please.

Well Jon, when next you meet the good Senator tell him that we’d prefer Jim DeMint in his office! You might remind him that Ted Kennedy and Harry Reid, don’t have "R" after their state abbreviation and that producing bi-partisan legislation that 80% of America hates is not what we expect of him, M’Kay?

If throwing out a guy Righty’s loved two months ago is the hill you want to die on, so be it. You know, Reagan favored an immigration compromise, too.

I’m also sure DeMint is a decent fellow and Republican, though I’m not sure what makes you think he’d be a good minority leader. The role has less to do with policy than with the parliamentary equivalent of herding cats.

And in 1986 with 3 million illegals it made sense. 20 years later with 12 million illeglas and no more enforcement than was present in 1986, a "Compromise" bill that did the same thing makes no sense. Something that apparently you guys in DC simply will not grasp.

Ask Newt Gingrich about requires BOTH things. That’s the Senate’s problem it is so INSIDE BASEBALL...not what is done but HOW it’s done...well that’s all good and well, IF you are a politcal junkie and "insider", but the rest of us want decent policy made, not so much worried about if the Senate has "comity" or "bi-partisanship"

Herding them where? Unless you just want them to go in circles, there must be someplace to heard them to, some policy you get them to support, in other words.

You’d think so, but that’s not necessarily the case.
