Boy, can he call 'em? Yesterday, April 30, 2014, he had this short post:
DEMOCRATIC SENATE BLOCKS FEDERAL MINIMUM WAGE BILL. See, I can do the MSM headline thing when I want. . . .
The link went to a Fox News item about the defeat in the Senate of a measure that would advance a bill hiking the minimum wage. The vote was 54 against and 42 for the measure, and lacking the 60 votes need to go forward, it went down in defeat. Whose fault was that? For Democrats, it was the Republicans' fault. And sure enough, just as Instapundit anticipated, this morning's paper provided us with this headline:
GOP blocks minimum wage try in Senate
You have to read down into the article to see that Harry Reid himself voted against it for purely political reasons. But the narrative is that it's the Republicans fault even though the Democrats hold a majority in the Senate. Never mind that a minimum wage is a bad economic idea, and a hike is an even worse idea. You can't go against the narrative.
Anyway, back to the point. Instapundit nailed it to the wall.
