Our good ally over at The Last Chance Democracy Cafe, has a few thoughts for our Democratic office holders.
And where was the loyal opposition through these and all of the other outrages? Speaking as a lifelong Democrat, I have to tell you there were times during the last few years when I actually wondered whether my partyÂs representatives in Congress had been assimilated by the Borg. You know, those alien invaders in the Star Trek series who use cybernetic implants to control people, destroying their individuality and causing them to chant over and over again, ÂResistance is futile! Resistance is futile!Â Kind of fits, doesnÂt it? Now, in fairness, here recently congressional Democrats have actually started showing signs of life Â not as much as might be wished, but enough perhaps to justify sending the mortician home for the night.
But my God, what took them so long? I mean, how many times did Bush &Have have to hit them below the belt before they finally figured out these guys donÂt play fair. This isnÂt rocket science. Ask any school kid. ThereÂs no compromising with a bully. They wonÂt meet you half way. They wonÂt make nice to you because you make nice to them. You canÂt reason with them. When faced with a bully, eventually you come down to one of two choices Â stand your ground or reconcile yourself to getting your face rubbed in the snow. ItÂs that simple.
This episode deals with a "bully" in The Last Chance Democracy Cafe. Like always it's a great read for a snowy day...or any day for that matter.
