  •  It's the media, not the Dems, that's the problem (5+ / 0-)

    The media treated the 1998 House Majority Leader battle -- where Dick Armey had to have THREE SEPARATE BALLOTS before he finally won -- much more gently than they are the Democrats' much-more-mild-in-comparison fight.

    And as was brought in my diary on this, the media didn't go out of their way to spin the battle to replace DeLay as Majority Leader (a battle John Boehner won) as "a sign of the fatal weakness of the GOP".

      We elected them inspite of 'The Media', did we not?

      We elected them inspite of a boatload of Republican cash, Republican lies, and Republican voter suppression efforts and outright voting machine fraud.

      Yet they are already telling us what they won't do for us and putting K-Street stooges in place. I hear that 'impeachment is off the table', and that Bush won't let them get us out of Vietnam Iraq.

      Man they had better get their asses in gear.

      The Bushiter's Iraq 2004 - 1268 Dead, about 25K Medivacs and 9000 Maimed... It's the Bushiter Way, wasting other people's money and lives. And it's worse now.
