I Am Sure Ron Kirk Feels the Same Way

Thought I would share with you this quote from Republican Sen. John Cornyn that's making all the rounds. Seems Cornyn, who beat former Dallas mayor Ron Kirk in the 2002 election, is no fan of...what's the word?...uh...oh, yeah...democracy. Says so right here, see?

"Well, you know, that's the problem in America, we're always having elections."

By the way, this comes from Pere Ubu--the blogger, not the band--who has a partial transcript on his (her?) blog from a chitchat the senator had on CNN yesterday with Dana Bash about, among other things, Republican infighting. Odd, I'm having a dana bash right now, and you're all invited. --Robert Wilonsky
