What's wrong with the Dems

This sums up everything that's wrong with our spineless Democratic party:

"Discretion is the better part of valor,” said Senator Max Baucus, Democrat of Montana and chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, told The Associated Press after Democrats apparently had abandoned attempts to add some $40 billion to the House package.

Jesus F Christ, they have a majority both houses of Congress, most Americans support their policies, and those chicken shits run like scared rabbits at any sign of confrontation with those big bad Republicans who are intent on just stalling everything as much as possible. I am just disgusted, and I want all the money and time back that I spent on those losers.

Because I have to say something about it

Last night, I saw the rarest of rarities: a Super Bowl where the game was more exciting than the commercials (which were pretty damn lame, granted, but the game was exciting). Can we see another rarity, a Presidential election run on issues in which the better candidate actually wins?

Of course, here's a flashback to 2004: "now that the Red Sox have finally won the World Series, can another Bostonian break a miserable losing streak and become President?" And we know how that turned out. Moral: sports success does not translate to world affairs. Often, it doesn't even translate to more sports success (hence my bold prediction that the Giants will NOT be in the Super Bowl next year).
