Drudge (link may change later) has a 'Flash Report' that the DNC's dearth of cash is beginning to irritate (I'd say panic) party leadership. I would note that the actual December FEC report has not been posted as of this hour so real facts on the matter are in short supply. When I noted Dean's YTD performance in October it was picked up by the WaPo (non-attributed) and caused a little splash. In reviewing the November report I noted that cash on hand had improved but I remember thing to myself "this looks like they're stuffing invoices in a desk drawer". The cash on hand figure of $5.5 mil is significantly lower in December than November's $7mil plus, so I'll give myself a pat on the back (and next time I'll write up my suspicions).
How many dry holes will the Dem's allow Dean to drill before giving him the boot? The filibluster tactic is an obvious ploy to try and vacuum a little more dough out of the Koslander's wallets but I can confidently predict that it will fail. If there is one thing that can be said with great assurance of the Koslanders, it is that the full measure of their lack of courage is at least equal to their lack of convictions. In Texas I believe the saying is "All hat, no cattle."
