"Skinner" on Democraticunderground.com put toghether this hypothetical transcript of a conversation between Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid and Senator Russ Feingold. It's PURE FICTION but it isn't hard to imagine that it could have very well gone down just this way.
Here's the linky thing
and a snippet for your enjoyment:
SEN. REID: What? Look, politics is much too important to be left to a bunch of well-meaning-but-misguided liberals from the Northeast and West Coast.
SEN. FEINGOLD: I'm from Wisconsin. It's closer to the middle of the country than Nevada.
SEN. REID: Wisconsin! Bah! Wisconsin is just Vermont with cows and cheese.
SEN. FEINGOLD: I'm pretty sure Vermont has cows and cheese, too. But we're getting off topic here. Are we going to go after the president or not?
SEN. REID: We will. But we can't do it now. His poll numbers are too low. We'd look mean for kicking a man when he's down.
SEN. FEINGOLD: So, can we go after him when his poll numbers come back up?
SEN. REID: Certainly not! It would be suicide to attack a popular president. Are you insane? You have to think one step ahead here. Always anticipate the response. If it's bad, then you keep your powder dry.
Be sure to read the rest....it's funny
