How Low The Bar

March 30th, 2009at 07:30pm Posted by Eli

Politico has a very generous definition of “accomplishment” and “victory,” at least where Republicans are concerned:

In reality, the Republican who has accomplished the most in the early stages of President Barack Obama’s administration is Rep. Eric Cantor, the buttoned-down minority whip who marshaled the House GOP’s unanimous opposition to the $787 billion Democratic stimulus package in February.

That victory enhanced Cantor’s already growing reputation, with admirers like Republican pollster Frank Luntz labeling the 45-year-old Virginian the party’s “go-to guy on everything.”

So… his attempt to block the stimulus package totally failed, but because his caucus was unanimous against it, it was really a victory.  Ooo-kay.

In that case, allow me to wish the GOP many more years of continued success.
