    They've been hitting us in the head for over 5 years now.  It's only in recent months that they're occasionally starting to hit themselves, too. "

    Now that they're hitting themselves in the head, why not wait to see if they manage to correct their aim before wresting the hammer from their hand?

    At some point in time, a party must define itself by what it is rather than by what it is not.

    I agree with this statement 100%.  But how does censure define Democrats as anything other than the not-Bush?  Especially given that the Repubs will spin it as "weak-on-terrorism".

    it's long past time to follow Carville's advice of throwing an anvil to our opponents as they're drowning.

    I don't see how "define itself by what it is" == "throwing an anvil".  

    •  How about, we believe in obeying the law... (0+ / 0-)

      our opponents don't.  It's a simple concept.  We're told that Americans are hungry for "values" these days.  How about a basic American value--obey the laws of this country, and if you don't like a particular law, try to change it.  That goes double if you're the president and your party controls both houses of Congress.

      From day 1, this WH has taken the position that the law doesn't apply to it.  A large swath of the GOP "leadership" has taken the position that obeying the law and playing by the rules is for suckers.  FISA happens to be a law that the WH has brazenly violated.  Censuring W for his open disdain for the basic concept of the rule of law highlights that fact.

      Some men see things as they are and ask why. I see things that never were and ask why not?
