Preaching to the Choir:

The New York Sun is reporting today that the City Council’s new speaker Christine Quinn is serious about having active debate return to the council in regards to new legislation. Her comments are a result of all 206 bills that were brought to floor since 2001 being passed and only 5 being passed without veto proof margins.

Though on the surface debate sounds good, the reason there’s no debate is because the whole council belongs to the same political thought. What is this council under Quinn going to debate over? To debate there needs to be either disagreement or you need to have someone willing to play devils advocate, something I don’t expect some liberal council member to do. Hell if they could think like a rational person and play devils advocate, they wouldn’t be a liberal.
