Where did it go? Why did a planned rally in LA draw so few people in LA last week that AP even counted journos and organizers in its guesstimate of crowd size? Perhaps the most amusing paragraph within the article was this:
An Associated Press review this week of voter registration figures from Chicago, Denver, Houston, Atlanta, Los Angeles and other major urban areas that saw large rallies showed no sign of a historic new voter boom that could sway elections.There's no delusion quite like self-delusion.
Just another Emily Litella moment for the Democrats, I suppose. A bit like the "Republican Culture of Corruption" which has engendered the hoped for effect of a tight Senate race in Montana and the forced retirement of a Congressman in a safe district in Ohio but has also left Congressman William Jefferson (and possibly the Sanchez sisters) wondering whether they will get a sentence for receiving a bribe as stiff as Vernon Jackson received for offering one. Democratic Congressman Mollohan will retain his House seat but is unlikely to regain his seat on the House Ethics Committee - which is just as well, considering that the Department of Justice is casting a cold eye on some of his rather lucrative associations with 'foundations'. Perhaps the same officals at Justice are involved in the recently announced investigation of the newly minted and immediately tarnished Senator Menendez of New Jersey? Will he turn out to be as cheap a crook as Torricelli? Will Lautenberg have to be called upon to hold both of New Jersey's Senate seats due to the unavailability of any other New Jersey Democrat without similiar problems?
Why has the New York Times become so tepid in its support of nutrooter Ted Lamont and his bid to unseat Joe Lieberman? In fact, why is the entire Democratic establishment sprinting from association with the nutroots? I thought they were the wave of the [Democratic] future? Perhaps it has something to do with the apparent buyer remorse that the Soros/Bing/Lewis consortium seems to be suffering over their purchase of the Democratic Party.
You can't really blame them, how would you feel if you opened the poke and found ten skunks rather than the nice healthy young pig you thought you were buying?
