Standards for Sneering


Marc Ambinder writes, “Rep. Charles Boustany (R-LA) can trot out familiar arguments about the Republican’s ‘plan,’ which is in scare quotes because it was written solely to have something to show people who asked what the Republican plan was. (If Republicans had written a serious plan, one that recognized the reality of a Democratic Congress, then I’d drop the scare quotes.)”

What a bizzare standard to apply. Did Ambinder refuse to consider Democratic proposals “plans” under the previous administration because they refused to recognize the reality of President Bush?
