Yep. All those "blue dog" democrats recruited by Pelosi in the 2006 elections will eventually come to bite her in the butt.

What a thought, elected representatives are actually representing their districts, instead of blindly toeing the party line. We need more of that from members of BOTH parties.

The Dems are going to lose seats in 2010. I just hope they lose enough that congress is a deadlock and can't pass anything. That is the only way to keep us safe from the neocons and the neomarxists.

This point is completely lost on the Obamatrons. If Obama didn't say it or do it, then it must not be true.
