The Corner

Just For the Record

When it comes to discussions of the Senate, I refuse to say “49 Democrats and 2 independents” for the next two years, every single time the subject comes up. I will mention the independents (Sanders and Lieberman) when it’s acutely relevant and it would be misleading not to. The rest of the time I’m going to say “Senate Democrats voted against blah blah” or “Senate Democrats agreed to yada yada yada…” If ultra-pedants are driven mad by this, so be it. Life’s too short.
