Well, let today's circus begin. First up from the party where women are human beings:
Rep. Loretta Sanchez has quit the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, accusing the chairman, Rep. Joe Baca, of telling people she's a "whore."Then Sen Joe Biden (who is about to receive a promotion to "Apocalypse Dwarf" status) said of fellow dwarf Dusky:
...Sanchez, a California Democrat as is Baca, also cited concerns about whether Baca was properly elected Hispanic Caucus chairman in November and about his general attitude toward female lawmakers. The caucus represents 21 Hispanic Democrats in Congress.
"I'm not going to be a part of the CHC as long as Mr. Baca illegally holds the chair … I told them no. There's a big rift here," Sanchez said. "You treat the women like shit. I have no use for him."
"I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that's a storybook, man."To which Rev. Al responded (when Joe called to apologize) that he, too, bathed every day, and Jessie complained was "dismissive of our**** own campaigns." Obama himself later had to point out other black candidates, like Shirley Chisholm and Carol Moseley Braun, that Biden, like the rest of the nation, didn't notice had even run. One can only assume they were clean, too.
While the Democrats are a live-action Island of Misfit Toys when out of power, they are so much more entertaining when their incompetence matters. As I said before the electorate put the speaker's gavel into the hands of America's children, if all the Dems do is check Bush, that's the best political outcome we can hope for. Any entertainment value is simply icing on the cake. It looks like there'll be plenty.

* the first, of course, was that since Bush acts like a Democrat and his own party won't oppose him, the elimination of Bush as a political force will have the major effect of reducing the number of Democratic parties in America by one.
** No, raising the MinWage is not significant. Stupid, but not significant.
*** Carter lost the Senate and then the Presidency. Clinton, having 4 more years than Carter in which to accomplish nothing, lost both House and Senate before turning the White House back to the GOP. Bush, being himself a closet Democrat, managed the feat as well, while leaving behind looming national bankruptcy. Never let it be said nominal Republicans don't get things done.
**** Apparently Jesse prefers the royal "We."
