    they obviously are doing something right

    No, it's that the Republicans are doing everything wrong, with multiple meanings of the word 'wrong'. The voters aren't stupid, and the Republican-created mistrust of the press over the last twenty years is now backfiring on them now that they clearly and beyond visible doubt own the press.

    No, the DC Democrats have done very little right. They, too, have failed to provide proper oversight. I knew Bush was a fratboy cokehead liar -- why wasn't this obvious to DC Dems? I knew the basic outlines of why you couldn't just waltz into Baghdad and be victorious in 2002; why wasn't anyone in DC more incredulous? All you had to do was read a short history book, or even see a fricking PowerPoint presentation on the problems with the middle east.

    Bush would be in jail right now if more DC Democrats had the balls of Russ Feingold, or heck, any balls at all. As much as Caraville is fundamentally useless these days, the line "throw them an anchor" is really resonant right now: why aren't DC Dems doing it? It's past time for them to stand up and fight for their country.
