We lost the House, the Senate, the White House, and perhaps even the courts. We don't control the media, as purported daily by conservative spin monkeys like Rep. Tom Delay, and it sure feels small and insignificant to be a Democrat these days. But not this week. This week I am feeling empowered; satisfied. Hell, I'm even gloating
. By all indications, things are looking worse each day for embattled House Leader Delay. The solid wall of Republican support is slowly chipping away. Our poster-boy for morality and ethics is on the hot seat, and it's getting hotter every minute. Let me go out on a limb and say his days are numbered. He's going down. He will eventually lose his leadership post. And let's not forget the midterms, and the fact that he only won in '04 by 55% against a no-name
opponent. He could very well find himself playing a lot of tennis in '06 with Tom Daschle. It also appears that President Bush's nominee for UN Ambassador, John Bolton, seems doomed. Apparently, even the Senate GOP is starting to consider that perhaps berating and threatening suboordinates, fishing for secret personnel info, exaggerating WMD threats and chasing a female lawyer through a Moscow hotel just may not be very diplomatic.
Lastly, Bush's Social Security privatization plan is all but dead. Senate and House Democrat's take note: you do have power.
Look what happens when you stop being Bush's patsys. Next stop, the filibuster. We must win this showdown. But all in all, it sure feels good to be a Democrat right now. Andy
