  •  There is something in the character of Dems (3+ / 0-)

    both in Congress and even, I believe, amongst Democratic voters, that recoils from the raw exercise of political power.  We place too much emphasis upon "fair play" and following rules, even as we compete against an opponent who isn't hung up on those notions.  It's like engaging in a duel where you walk ten paces and turn, yet we know that at the count of nine our opponent will turn and shoot.  We congratulate ourselves on our integrity as we fall to the ground, mortally wounded.

    I find it sickening and self defeating.
