Pretty Petulant Party, Pal

The compromising, principled, cups-overflowing-with-the-cream-of-human-goodness Democratic members of the House displayed their unwavering commitment to national security in yesterday's vote on renewal of the Patriot Act. That vote, 277-148, failed to reach the 2/3 majority it required for renewal. Funny thing, though - last year it passed pretty easily. What was the difference?


In 2010, of the Democrats who voted, 62.5% voted "Aye." But in 2011, only 35.4% voted in favor of renewal. [...for Republicans, those numbers are 93.9% and 88.6%, respectively.]

Boy do they get pissy when they have a bad election year.
