HOT BLAST: Modesty of Republicans in the Alabama House

For a while, at least, Gov. Robert Bentley was calling the recently completed 2013 session of the Alabama Legislature the "best session ever" in Montgomery.

That changed, of course, when the Republican-controlled Legislature voted down the governor's amendment that would have delayed the start of the Alabama Accountability Act for two years. After that, the governor's tune changed a bit.

Nevertheless, GOPers in the Alabama House have become fond of tooting their own horn now that the session is in the past. Today, House Republicans released a video that lists the accomplishments they feel made it a monumental spring in Montgomery.

Not included in the video are all sorts of items that others -- including The Star's editorial board -- point to when debunking the notion that the 2013 session was the "best session ever." Atop that list has to be the manner in which Republicans, led by Senate President Pro Tem Del Marsh of Anniston, pushed through the Alabama Accountability Act with scant input or debate.

In this case, House Republicans have taken to recording their own history as they see it.
