Democrats challenged to do the right thing
Smitty throws down the gauntlet to our two Virginia senate critters. Odds of success? Remote. But it is gracious and magnanimous of him to at least suggest that they are susceptible to the demands of honor. If nothing else, I do them the justice of believing that they possess a sense of shame. Which is why the letter is well-directed; a similar appeal to the honor of, say, Harry Reid or Charles Schumer would be viewed by the recipients as something completely inscrutable, as incomprehensible as a psalm rendered in Church Slavonic or the laws of the Marylebone Cricket Club.
