Now Term Limits Don't Seem so Smart?

Freshman legislators are now floating a bill to lengthen term limits from 8 to 12 years in each chamber of the legislature. Many of them are only there because more experienced legislators were swept out of office by term limits in the first place.

Personally, I've long opposed term limits as a blunt tool denying voters the opportunity to elect the best person for the job, but it's ironic to see the new crop of legislators getting hoisted on their own petard.
