More demagoguery from the left

CNN carries the following story.

Joe Klein of Time Magazine says about the elections:

This was a big deal. Certainly, it was the end of George W. Bush's radical experiment in partisan governance. It might have been even bigger than that: the end of the conservative pendulum swing that began with Ronald Reagan's revolution.

Wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong. There was no liberal victory here. None. Here there was only punishment of Republicans for not adhering to Reaganite conservatism. Period.

In fact, if there was a common strand in last week's Democratic victories and Republican defeats, it was the ascendancy of realists. The architects of the Democratic victory, Sen. Charles Schumer and Rep. Rahm Emanuel, had calculated with cold-eyed efficiency which candidates the party would support, regardless of the extent of their orthodoxy.

Neither of those pigs should ever be associated with anything approaching realism. They pray for more bloodshed in Iraq to use it as a tool to further their own power.

But the administration's stubbornness on Iraq, neatly symbolized by Rumsfeld's detachment from reality, certainly didn't help the GOP cause. Of course, it is assumed by most people in Washington that bipartisan efforts on even the smallest matters, much less the war in Iraq, will be near impossible.

The only stubborness they can be accused of is of not taking aggressive action to route out the murdering bastards over there. That's not the type of stubborness I feel the Times is alluding to. Sounds to me like the want retreat. Yes, we are stubborn in the face of opposition because we have the world's biggest sledgehammer, and none can stand against it when it falls. We just need to USE IT.

The question now is whether "winning" means blocking the president or demonstrating the ability to govern. It probably means a little of both, but I suspect the Democrats will be better served by proving they have the maturity to do the latter.

Don't hold your breath. The Dems won't be able to resist impeachment proceedings and generalized dick-headedness once the ball gets rolling. They'll show their true colors before long, and hopefully this will revitalize the conservative element in Congress.
