Articles of Confederation

September 28, 2013

Finally, someone mentions The Articles of Confederation as a precedent for our current political scrum. Maine’s Independent Senator Angus King quotes a former history professor: the mess of “The Articles” is the only incident close to what is currently happening, with one group arguing for a weak central government. Sounds familiar. Props to King, his professor, and Up with Steve Kornacki.
