Democrats Hand the Election to McCain

Dear George,

The Democratic Party has ceded the 2008 election to John McCain. Oh, there will still be the posturing over trivial issues, and one or two sparks will flash briefly before being extinguished. But, thanks to congressional democrats, the Republicans will be in power for another four years.

Real political parties engaged in real election campaigns do everything in their power to embarrass the opposition. If the party in power opposes a piece of popular legislation, the opposition party shines the brightest klieg light they can find on its position.

Democrats have being trying to pass an expansion of the popular Children Health Insurance Program, which you have vetoed twice.

With an election two months away, even the dumbest political operative would recommend passing the bill over and over, forcing you to veto it over and over, and making sure the public understood that the Republican Party was opposed to providing health insurance for America’s children.

Luckily, the Democrats have their heads up their asses, and have decided to drop the bill because you would veto it, which is what a decent opposition party would want you to do if they had a fucking brain in their head.

As an article in yesterday’s New York Times put it, the Democratic maneuver spares “Republicans from a politically difficult vote just weeks before the elections this fall.”

The decision was made by Nancy Pelosi, Rahm Emanuel and Steny H. Hoyer. (Normal protocol calls for putting a “Rep.” in front of each name, followed by the party designation and state. However, neither Pelosi, Emanuel nor Hoyer is a “representative” by any stretch of the imagination. They are corporate lobbyists who happen to be domiciled in the nation’s Capitol rather than on K Street.)

Between congressional timidity and the alienation of Obama’s base with his move to the right, you can rest assured that come January, Congress will be cowering before a pit bull with lipstick.

Your admirer,

The only thing I can figure out is that the Democrats don't want to win in view of all the crises that are going to break in the next four years, so they've set Obama up to take a fall so the GOP can be at the helm with the economy goes belly up.

Either that or they really are as stupid as they appear.

It's neither. Washington is a giant company town, a permanent horde of money-grubbers of both flavours, going from public office to private profit and back. Yes, they *all* do this.

America looks different from the beltway. Try getting elected to Congress and going to Washington. I bet it would make an acid trip seem tame.
