A limit to political tolerance....

....was apparently found by California Senator Janet Nguyen, who (amazingly) decided not to sign on to a resolution in honor of the late Tom Hayden, noting his part in putting her as an infant in a leaky boat on the South China Sea, and his failure to acknowledge that he was wrong about the brutality of Communism. 

Now "protocol" says that one ought not belittle a fellow Senator, of course, and yes, people can forgive these wrongs, but I am quite happy to see someone objecting to a posthumous honor for Hayden for these reasons.  There are times, quite frankly, when politicians get along too well, and that betrays that they really might not believe what they say they do.
