Congressman admits Dems “stretched the facts” about stopping the war to get elected

Headline says it all:

As Jeff Emanuel notes, there’s an extra little dollop of condescension to leaven all that honesty:

“Now anybody was a good student of Government,” said Kanjorski, “would know that wasn’t true [that they “could stop the war”].” Fortunately for those Democrats who campaigned, and were elected, based on their war-ending promises, their hardcore supporters, their activists, and their base of voters, are all made up of people who are, by Mr. Kanjorski’s reckoning, very, very poor students of Government.

But all of that was justified to these incumbents and first-time candidates. Taking advantage of poor, uneducated rubes? Abusing trust, and leaving those who offered it stranded along the way? All acceptable — because, again by Mr. Kanjorski’s own description, of “the temptation to want to win back the Congress.”

As Krusty the Klown once remarked, “Oh crap, I said the loud part quiet and the quiet part loud!”

H/T to Ace.
