The Right Stuff

A politics blog by Tom Jackson

Tom Jackson's baseball card - if he had one - would report he throws left, writes right. In his columns and blog, "The Right Stuff," southpaw Jackson provides insight into the evolving human condition from a distinctly conservative point of view.

DCCC: Always keeping it classy

Fresh off his mildly surprising win in Tuesday’s special election in the District 13 special election, Republican David Jolly was sworn in as the newest member of the U.S. House of Representatives Thursday. Let’s just say the other side did not take it well.

Here’s what the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, via spokesman Josh Schwerin, had to say about it:

“Now the newest face of this Republican Congress is special interest lobbyist David Jolly, who made a career out of stacking the deck for big corporations and millionaires. Jolly will fit right in with the Medicare-dismantling, health care-repealing, big oil-subsidizing, insurance company-coddling Congressional Republicans who bend over backward for special interests at the expense of middle class families.”

Classy. Very classy.
