Self-Congratulatory Press Release of the Day

Posted by on Wed, May 2, 2012 at 4:36 PM

Just got a press release from the Washington State Senate Dems announcing: "Legislature receives high marks for success of reform agenda."

Really? The legislature received high marks? From whom?

“If we are handing out grades, I would give the Legislature an A-minus,” said Sen. Jim Hargrove, D-Hoquiam.

Oh. So the legislature receives high marks from itself. Gotcha.

To be fair, Hargrove is generally not hesitant to piss inside the tent first.

Did WiS just say that engineering sudents in, ahem, "engineering school" (aka college) are allowed to grade themselves?

The legislature has been stuck in the snow for years, so yeah, that sounds like an A-minus to me!
