The latest outrage from the right is the legislation Congress is trying to pass before the 111th United States Congress adjourns. They insist that it is wrong for anything to pass before the new Congress is sworn in. Some of the legislation are minor things like approving the START Treaty to make it difficult for nuclear proliferation.
I’m trying to remember when there was this sort of major outrage during other lame duck sessions. Sure there’s always squawking about it, but I can’t remember it to this level.
Perhaps those on the right who are upset about enacting controversial things during a lame duck session should set the Wayback Machine to December 19, 1998. It was on that day that the lame duck Republican House impeached President Clinton.
