Profiles in Blurrage

House Democrats ended their pajama party in their own House chamber:

A drained and dwindling group of Democrats, some draped in blankets and toting pillows, carried their remarkable House floor sit-in past daybreak Thursday, disrupting the business of Congress in the wake of the Orlando shooting rampage with demands for gun-control votes in an extraordinary scene of protest broadcast live to the world.

But about noon Dallas time, they had decided to end the the sit-in, which had last more than 25 hours.

This is what Democratic leaders gave us in response to the worst jihadi attack against Americans since September 11, 2001. They blurred the real issue of Islamist terrorism for their own political advantage.

Presumably, they all changed out of their onesies and then returned to their seats some dozens of feet away to continue to not do their jobs.

UPDATE: It really is shameful that the Democrats are pretending that undermining due process is a civil rights issue.

UPDATE: Yeah, pretty much. Tip to Instapundit.
