The Continuing Implosion

I didn't think it was possible for the Democrats to self-destruct before January, but the meltdown still continues.

Not only is Charles Rangel begging for the draft as a political stunt, and pulling a Kerry-esque insult of the military, while Nancy Pelosi is supporting losers for House leadership posts while rejecting old enemies out of spite, but now the Democrats have thrown red meat to the press. Even the old media can't ignore this one. And when you go back on promises made, this will be your headline:

Democrats Reject Key 9/11 Panel Suggestion

Whoops. The Democrats, like the Republicans before them, don't want to reorganize congressional committees to reallocate power from the Armed Services Committees to Intelligence Committees. It's an age old power play, and the Democrats are refusing to play. Does this really matter to politics? I don't think so, but the Democratic leadership needs to realize that all publicity in politics is not good publicity. Until next time...
