“Guest essays don’t represent the institution that publishes them.”

Bullshit. The publisher makes a choice to publish or not publish a guest essay and controls the context in which that essay is or is not published.

That’s right: all the ‘yes’ votes were from Republicans.

But surprisingly, there are moderate Republicans in some parts of Indiana. Here are the ones who voted no:

  • Ed Clere, R-New Albany
  • Sean Eberhart, R-Shelbyville
  • Matt Hostettler, R-Patoka
  • John Jacob, R-Indianapolis
  • Cindy Ledbetter, R-Newburgh
  • Curt Nisly, R-Milford
  • Tom Saunders, R-Lewisville
  • Ann Vermilion, R-Marion
  • Cindy Ziemke, R-Batesville

state legislators who don’t face elections in the near future can push through bills on the quickest of schedules (" long days of hearings filled with sobering and personal testimony from citizens and elected representatives on this emotional and complex topic" notwithstanding), before the public has a chance to channel their rage into something politically productive; republicans who face election in November squirm all summer long.

Needs more caricature. A cartoon should make Brooks more ridiculous than in real life, not less ridiculous.

Not if he’s convicted and is ineligible to even run. And is in prison. Tough to do effective rallies in Leavenworth.
