Murray on debt supercommittee

Washington Sen. Patty Murray is being named to the national debt reduction supercommittee, according to unnamed sources quoted by Politico, the National Journal and the Associated Press.

Murray's staff  just confirmed it by sending out the press release from the office of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.

Even before that confirmation, the Washington state Republican Party was already saying that this was a terrible, awful, no good, really bad appointment.  It's like asking a fox to guard the henhouse, state chairman Kirby Wilbur said.

So there's something we never even thought we'd hear:  Kirby Wilbur thinks Patty Murray's a fox.
