Washington State Representative Rodney Tom has announced that he is switching from the Republican party to the Democrats. State Republican Party Chairwoman Diane Tebelius has said, “Rodney Tom should do the right thing and resign. When he came to the party four years ago, he said he was a Republican.”

I’m certain that as a principled conservative, Ms. Tebelius was equally forceful about the need to do the right thing when Senator Campbell switched from Democrat to Republican, just as she surely must have been when so many other Democrats switched parties in the 1980s and 1990s.


Bueller? Bueller? Anyone?
