New Fundraising Idea-- Buy the Democrats a Spine!

If Harry Reid were a car, I'd want to take him in and get all of those reverse gears removed from his transmission. I'd hold a fundraiser to buy ol' Harry some forward gears. Maybe even convert him into a half-track so he can get through some rough terrain. Maybe weld some stiffeners to the frame so he doesn't fold up like a piece of origami.

But as it stands now, Harry Reid is to the legislative process what the Italian Army was to military campaigns in World War II. If Democrats in the Congress were piece of furniture, most of them would be cheap-ass lawn chairs.

I can't begin to tell you how disgusted I am with the apparent spinelessness of the Democrats in the Senate and, to a slightly lesser extent, in the House. There are a few who lay it on the line, such as Russ Feingold in the Senate, but they are few and far between.

These guys ought to try taking a stand and try putting their political asses on the line. That may be a bit to ask, but considering that there are thousands of American teenagers and 20-somethings in Iraq and Afghanistan who put their lives on the line, asking the Democrats to take a stand now and then doesn't seem like a big thing to ask of them.

If the Democrats in Congress don't want to stand up and do the job they were sent to do, then they should retire and let someone else take over.
