Democrats In A Nutshell

In the least surprising political performance of the week, Harry Reid snoozed and pussyfooted his way through last night’s debate with radical Teabaggette Sharron Angle:

Reid was . . . inarticulate, frequently using the parlance of the Senate and offering kind words about former President George W. Bush and Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia — hardly the way to motivate his Democratic base.

Even more puzzling, with the polls deadlocked and his career on the line, the four-term senator largely avoided engaging Angle.  For a hard-nosed politician who prides himself on his youthful boxing exploits, he threw surprisingly few punches.

This is standard practice for most Democrats.  Barack Obama wasted much of the last two years waiting in vain for Republican hacks like Chuck Grassley and Olympia Snowe to act responsibly.  And now, while engaged in the electoral fight of his life, Harry Reid is playing patty cake with the craziest wingnut west of the Pecos.

I really think a lot of Democratic politicians feel more comfortable in the minority.   

The best lack all conviction, while the worst/Are full of passionate intensity. . . .

  1. We’re taking our country back and there’s little or nothing that your sort can do about it.

    Just pray – if you’re capable of it – that we continue to allow you to live here.

  2. Teabaggers are crazy. Q.E.D.

  3. Jonolan is a plant right?

    At any rate, love the Yeats quote. Great tag out.
