"Honestly, it's not because I’m a paragon of virtue, it’s because that would be a terrible way to do the job."
- Former Obama spox Jay Carney, 6-19-2014, on if he ever lied to the WH press corps.
Fri AM Update:Memeorandum has tons of links from bloggers and news outlets on what happened last night, how the bill was killed, etc.
I’m in the middle of composing a post-”bill kill” post which will likely be posted tonight time-permitting or sometime this weekend. It’s gonna take me a while, because I’ve got a lot on my mind about it, some of which is not going to make either side of the debate happy.
I mostly stayed out of it, because emotions were running high, and I didn’t want to write something totally based on emotion, but now that the bill is dead (which I knew it would be eventually) – for now – and some of the emotionalism is subsiding, it’s time to put my thoughts together and write about them.
