The Pathetic Democrats

Honestly, does it more pathetic than this:

Sparks fly over resolution paying tribute to Reagan

ST. PAUL Even in death, Ronald Reagan can't catch a break in Minnesota.
A resolution honoring the former Republican president's birthday caused partisan friction in the state Senate. It passed only after being retooled to mention that he never won Minnesota.

Minnesota was the only state not in Reagan's column in the 1984 election. It went for Democrat Walter Mondale, a native son.

The Democratic-controlled Senate spent more than a half-hour debating the Republican-offered resolution recognizing Reagan's February sixth birthday.

Democrats criticized the original resolution as ideologically skewed. They added revisions such as one noting tax increases under Reagan.

Senate Republicans were taken aback by the changes but supported the revised resolution rather than put off a vote.

Reagan died in June of complications from Alzheimer's disease at age 93.
