I think that Andrea Batista Schlesinger is being disingenuous when she states that The Drum Major Institute for Public Policy is a nonpartisan organization. I checked their Web site and scorecard on how Congress voted in 2004. I found that 0 percent of the House Democrats failed and 99 percent of the House Rupublicans failed in 2004. There is a word for agreeing with the Democrats 100 percent of the time and disagreeing with the Rupublicans 99 percent of the time. That word is "partisan."
