  •  That's because... (4.00)
    the Democrats are unable to stand up against them.

    It's funny. Look at the reactions here. The all amount to "Oh, what are we going to do? What is the Dem Party going to do?..."

    In essences, terrified bleating.

    Not one single person instantly thought this:

    "Don't worry, Kerry will rip them apart on this."

    Ever read Jennings' "Marco Polo"? Marco notices a sub-chieftain speaks bravely against Khan, but thunder (which is known to be Khan's voice) makes him instantly cower. When Polo eventually relays that observation to Ghenghis, the warlord laughs, knowing that sub-chieftain will never have the balls to challenge him.

      Worth repeating.

      All I can do is laugh. Dude! This was posted what, half an hour ago? Relax, man. Switch to decaf.

      You think this won't cause a stink? You're dreaming. Look at the GOP. The worse things get, the more they overreach.

      You have got to realize, we are on the cutting edge here in the blogosphere. Shit like this takes time to penetrate to the electorate. But when they move, they move, or haven't you noticed W's approval rating?

      Ever baked bread? You have to let that dough rise. You can't rush it.

      Imagine you are Lenin in February 1917, trying to rouse the narod against the Tsar. At thet point, he must have wondered if there was any hope. By October, there was no doubt.

      This is great news. Yes, the Dems have to take advantage. But give them a couple hours at least.
