Happy Democrats

Patriots, every one.

Is it me or was this an extraordinary week? Between Charlie Rangel talking about impeachment, the Downing Street Memo hearing (if you haven’t watched it go here for the highlights), Bush’s approval ratings dropping into the basement … And don’t let’s forget Dick Durbin, my very own senator, standing up and telling the truth. And then telling his critics to STFU.

We’ve seen movement precisely because we’ve refused to back down in the face of the usual wussified carping from Republicans that oooh, the liberals iz being so meen!!1! See what can happen when we just ignore their demands for conformity to some imaginary standard of civility to which they refuse to adhere and just keep poking them with a sharp stick? See how much Democrats can accomplish when we devote our time to work instead of worrying?
