Senator Chicken Little
"I don't think he has a respect for democracy" That is what Sen. Fred Fife, D-Salt Lake City, said about Sen. Curtis Bramble, R-Provo, in today's Tribune after being outmaneuvered in the Senate. Senator Fife deserves some slack considering this is his first session, but still: Senator Fife, being politically outmaneuvered by your opponents does not prove they have no respect for democracy. I'm sure you'll have your moments in the sun when you are able to parliamentarily shut down your own political enemies. And when you do, will it really mean you don't have respect for democracy? Or will it actually mean you politically outmaneuvered them.
