Stupid Right-Wing Tweets: Jack Welch Edition

The Lightbulb Guy might want to get an encyclopedia of logical fallacies out and look up <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/False_equivalence">false equivalence</a>. First, I don't remember Democrats refusing vote on George W. Bush's choices to head federal agencies, just because they didn't like the agencies. Second, whatever you think about Democratic filibusters, they've generally represented <a href="http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/politics/2010/02/let_the_majority_rule.html">the majority view.</a> Third, any third grader could look at a chart of cloture votes <a href="http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-fix/wp/2013/07/11/the-democratic-case-for-changing-the-filibuster-rules-in-1-chart/">and see the difference. </a>

First, I don't remember Democrats refusing vote on George W. Bush's choices to head federal agencies, just because they didn't like the agencies. Second, whatever you think about Democratic filibusters, they've generally represented the majority view. And third, any third grader could look at a chart and spot the difference.

Other than that, great political analysis, Senile Lightbulb Guy!
