I’m not sure how I feel about the events of today. But I will say, I have a sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach, and it’s held up by the hope that the moderate Democrats will have more balls than their liberal counter-parts. So please moderates, don’t make me lump you in with the idiots I see in my cynical world. You’re my hope that this government isn’t run by a bunch of fools. Stand strong, and govern for the people who elected you, not for the party line that got you there.
EDIT: This is not a slam against the Republicans. I’m actually more Republican at the federal level than I am Democrat (I fall in line with what’s referred to as “Southern Democrats”). The fact is, I don’t like the Nancy Pelosi and Murtha Democrats, at all. I would like to see the Democratic party pull back from the edge, and return to its roots. My only hope is that the newly elected moderates of the party will have the balls to stand up to the Pelosi’s and Murtha’s of the party and redefine it, while not running us down the shitter, as I believe Pelosi’s latest declarations will do. With that said, I’m not holding my breath.
