Change We Can Believe In
Read this WaPo article about the Ledbetter Fair Pay Act and notice that one single-sentence paragraph is devoted to the opposition. In part, this is because Ledbetter was never really debated; Very Serious Republicans voted for the bill, leaving the opposition mostly to right-wing cranks. But in part it's because Democrats now run the show, top to bottom. Republicans now have a much smaller microphone than they did last month. And that may be the most important change of all.
