  •  Heh... well, when you see Democrats saying that, (4+ / 0-)

    it's one of several things:

    a) "George Bush just made scary noises about 'with us or against us,' and my once-safe seat in this moderate district has come under fire, so I'll be throwing my lot in with the Republicans from now on."

    b) "I'm a reactionary asshole who just didn't get around to switching parties back when everyone else got the memo in the mid-1970s."

    c) "Truth be told, I'm already a major -- and willing -- butt-kisser of the Bush administration, and I've chosen this obscure procedural vote as an excuse to continue doing the butt-kissing that I've long engaged in."

    Oh, they all pull that "more-in-sorrow-than-in-anger" BS on Fox, but these so-called "lifelong Democrats" almost always have some kind of electoral calculation going on in the background. Most of them wouldn't know principle if they tripped over it.
