PRE-FACE - Wednesday, November 10, 2004Good morning!
The Dems did lunch yesterday in DC , vowing essentially to snipe and make life difficult for Republicans. Nancy Pelosi said they were saving civilization and quipped that Bush "won't be able to blame anyone, because the Republicans have full control."
Chuck Rangel declared that Democrats were "the party of moral values" because they do not cut taxes on the wealthy and run deficits.
Yeah, that's what the voters in the exit polls meant.
Again, this is what a party out of power does to give it enough zest to go on living.
"They value the voice I bring," claimed Chafee. The truth is, no they don't. They value the warm body with an R on the lapel pin. Same with Specter. Chafee has to know this, and he also knows the special kind of power he can wield by occasionally threatening to bolt. Jim Jeffords is living proof of how fast one's stock falls when he does jump.
