I'll see your politics and raise you

State Rep. Kathy Stein (D-Lexington) is threatening to convene hearings to investigate allegations made by Former Transportation Cabinet Secretary Sam Beverage that politics was involved in road projects awarded by the Fletcher administration.

Democrats first accuse the Fletcher administration of convening a special session for political purposes, and then turn right around and announce that they're going to use it for political purposes.

I would point out that this is a blatant contradiction if I didn't think the concept would be completely lost on Rep. Stein.

Oh, the trials and travails of applying logic to politics.

As someone born and raised in DC I know this feeling well. As much as we would like it, logic does not rule in politics. It is votes which motivate politicians. We will never see the actions of our politicians become logical unless our populace is properly educated or we change the voting requirements.
