Rhetorical self-demolishment

Gary Gross, writing at Let Freedom Ring, says (well, he heard somebody say) it's Mark Dayton's Commissioners who are cocking up the budget deal. But in the very next breath, he says this:
Gross goes on to give a laundry list of policy changes -- including several that he admits are controversial -- but clearly, it's the Commissioners who are the problem in his fevered imagination.

Rarely, in the field of rhetorical endeavor, has anyone so quickly demolished his own argument.

Our hats are off to Gary.

And just parenthetically, the King's "budget prioritization" idea is little more -- probably no more -- than saying let's do what Republicans want, and we'll assign things like HHS a lower priority, and if we run a little short of money, we'll let few poor people die in the streets.
