What Prize Do We Give Mitt Romney?

R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., The American Spectator

There are numerous members of the House of Representatives and the Senate who made epic asses of themselves during these unnecessary and wasteful proceedings. The American people expect better of the House and the Senate. Yet if there is one senator who deserves an award for his performance, say, Jackass of the Year, it is Sen. Mitt Romney of the great state of Utah. Mitt just kept talking, obviously enjoying the drama. Now the so-called liberals want to reverse previous presidents’ accretions of power. Moreover, they want to do it by stealth. Well, Mitch McConnell beat them back. Well done, senator. If we are going to turn our government into a parliamentary system, let us call a Constitutional Convention.
