Lies, damn lies, and editing

How can you make the Wall Street Journal a supporter of card check? You can’t, honestly that is.  But, if you’re George Miller (D-CA), the chairman of the House Labor Committee, you can make it appear as though they do by some editing.  Here’s the quote, as the Wall Street Journal wrote it, and as Miller rendered it:

The bill doesn’t remove the secret-ballot option from the National Labor Relations Act but in practice makes it a dead letter.

Come on, that’s not even clever.

But, I guess the SEIU (the nation’s most influential union) thought it was clever, because they’re doing it too.
