Henry: If Tables Were Turned …

Digger (re: Clark lobbying against do-not-call): I notice that there has been some discussion/complaint about the way DFO structures his questions regarding the legislature around "Idaho Republicans" -- as he very well should -- they are the majority party. If he were running this blog in Spokane or Seattle he'd have to use the same disdain and tone when discussing Washington Democrats. Let me explain -- I just got back from 3 days in Olympia for a legislative and lobby conference. We had a full day of legislative information panels and it was striking to me that the behavior - the tone and delivery of the message -- from the Washington Democrats was identical to the arrogance expressed by the Idaho Republicans - different issues (Idaho Republicans hate education, Washington Democrats haven't met a tax they don't love) but same attitude. ... DFO provides a valuable service to call the BS on the majority party - and regardless of whether they were Republicans or Democrats - the majority party will always need to be watched closely.

Question: Agree/disagree with Henry?
