Stay the course!

House Minority Leader Bill DeWeese appears to have taken the wrong lesson from the plight of our national leaders, putting consistency above all logic: John Baer is unimpressed by his pledge to "go down with his ship" of the legislative pay-hike, even as all but one of his colleagues have jumped into lifeboats.
No one would argue DeWeese was anything but consistent. But consistency on the wrong side of right is no virtue. The blind defense of something so universally regarded as self-serving and venal is consistency run amok. It is mere pigheadedness.
That's just the (um) tip of the iceberg. Baer is on a roll here . . .
