Ted Kennedy gave us this pearl of wisdom today: “The NLRB ‘is supposed to protect the voice of American workers, but the board is no longer fulfilling that responsibility.'” No, no , no. That is like saying the Supreme Court is there to represent stockholders against corporations. Oh, yes, they say that too. Where do they get the notion that impartial adjudicators are supposed to be on the side of Democratic interest groups? The NLRB is there to interpret labor law not to declare “union wins again, next case.” This is why the Bush Administration is accused of “politicizing” government agencies. If the normal state of things is that Democrat constituencies always win, any deviation is obviously the work of evil Republicans. Sigh.
