How to stifle a right-winger

Via Digby.

This is a great article pointing out that those who claim that the Democrats were worse than the Republicans when they were in control of Congress are full of it.

"This report documents how, ten years after their "revolution," House Republicans have completely abandoned this standard of deliberative democracy they set for themselves. Furthermore, they have abandoned any other principle of procedural fairness or democratic accountability. In the opinion of many non-partisan observers of Congress, the 108th Congress not only matched the worst abuses of earlier Congresses; it set a whole new benchmark."

It's extensively sourced, and very well done. Good job, and well worth reading if you have the overwhelming desire to shut up a wingnut when he says something ludicrous.
