Malkin on Sen. Patty Murray

Michelle Malkin overflows with incredulous, righteous scorn on the subject of Sen. Patty Murray as designated leader of the nation’s debt reduction:

Everything that’s wrong with the so-called debt “super-committee” can be summed up in the person, partisan hackery and policy ignorance of Washington Democratic Sen. Patty Murray.

On Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid named Murray co-chair of the dog-and-pony deficit-reduction panel tasked with identifying $1.5 trillion in spending cuts by late November. Murray, an unrepentant Nanny State cheerleader and patron saint of the Washington lobbyist, is a double-exclamation point on the debt deal’s rotten joke.

Malkin goes on to show that Murray is the worst possible person to have been picked for such a job, making clear the blatant unreality of the compromise deal to which Republicans agreed.

On a point of definition, I would point out that Murray is not a “Washington senator”; a Washington senator serves in the Washington state senate. She is a United States senator from Washington. It is unacceptable that Malkin, a veteran national political columnist and former editorial board member of the Seattle Times editorial board, doesn’t know the difference; or perhaps, which might be worse, knows it and doesn’t think it matters.
