Chris Cillizza must have been the first one with his hand up in the Washington Post editorial meeting to volunteer to write the “Democrats in disarray” piece, about the Cordoba House project. He must have dialed with glee into all the campaigns and heard all the anguished responses. I particularly enjoyed the anonymous operative at the front of the article, who said, “Obama is right on substance but wrong on politics, and right now we need to focus on politics.”

The idea that David Vitter can say with a straight face that he supports legislation to “remove” the liability cap for BP’s oil spill, and hold them accountable, only makes sense on the surface. You have to ignore a host of past experience, as well as the flawed legislation he’s actually pushing, to arrive at that conclusion.
