LALA LAND UPDATE….Harold Meyerson reports the latest on the Hilda Solis front:
Republican senators have a modest proposal for Hilda Solis: that if shes confirmed as Labor Secretary, she recuse herself from any advocacy for the Employee Free Choice Act.
Thats quite the suggestion. Rather like asking Robert Gates not to advocate for the armed forces, or Judd Gregg not to champion American business, or President Obamas environmental picks not to support stricter fuel-efficiency standards. But then, Republicans opposition to unions is close to clinically pathological.
These guys just don’t know when to quit. Don’t they ever get embarrassed by this stuff?
