(Hat tip to the folks at Hillbuzz for this manip.)
Apparently, fleeing the legislature to prevent a quorum is now the new “in” thing among loser Democrats. As the Indiannapolis Star reports:
House Democrats are leaving the state rather than vote on anti-union legislation, The Indianapolis Star has learned.
A source said Democrats are headed to Illinois, though it was possible some also might go to Kentucky. They need to go to a state with a Democratic governor to avoid being taken into police custody and returned to Indiana.
The House came into session this morning, with only two of the 40 Democrats present. Those two were needed to make a motion, and a seconding motion, for any procedural steps Democrats would want to take to ensure Republicans don’t do anything official without quorum.
With only 58 legislators present, there was no quorum present to do business.
The union-funded Democrat Party believes in democracy only when Democrats win. Democrats are friends of the “little people” only when the little people put them into office. Now that the electorate has handed the Democrats their asses in a historic landslide, their true loathing for us peons has been revealed in all its glory. Remember this in 2012, America.
