Bill O’Brien categorizes the opposition

In an open letter to his House colleagues, former Speaker Bill O’Brien categorized those lawmakers who oppose his highway funds amendment:

  1. They don’t like him.
  2. They blog.
  3. They’re smarty pants.

Now there are those who, while mouthing the rhetoric of bipartisanship, first look at who is making a proposal before they decide what to think about that proposal. And for others, they can find legislative relevance only by taking to computer rooms and look up blogging synonyms for vile or rising on the House floor and explaining how they are opposed because they have a corner on determining constitutionality among laws and honor among House members.
