17,000 Children Can’t Be Wrong

Sometimes in life we just have to admit we were wrong. Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst didn’t necessarily admit he’s been wrong on his stance on CHIP, but he’s done what, in political terms amounts to it. He’s come around to the other side’s point of view. Kuff has it here, Dewhurst finally sees the light on CHIP.

I’ve been told that the best way to deal with someone who finally comes around to your way of thinking after resisting for a long time is to pretend he’s always agreed with you. With that in mind, let me just say how nice it is to see this.

It is nice to see Dewhurst come around on this issue. It’s just too bad it took another 17,000 kids to be kicked off the roles for him to come around.
