Good Republicans/Bad Republicans

When Republican Sen. John Ensign voted for the first bailout bill, many conservative Republicans criticized that vote. And when they did, they themselves were criticized for criticizing a Republican by many less-than-conservative Republicans. Republicans who criticize fellow Republicans are considered “bad” Republicans whether the elected Republican voted badly or not.

Well, now Sen. Ensign is pretty much saying that his vote for the bailout was bad.

“I struggled whether to vote for it (the bailout),” Ensign recently told a class at Douglas High School. “We were being sold this scenario where the financial world was freezing. But I’m still not convinced it was the right vote.”

So I guess all those “good” Republicans who criticized Ensign for casting a “bad” vote now owe the “bad” Republicans an apology. Don’t hold your breath waiting.
