Year of the Democrat - Day 9

If you've got your calendar nearby and a pencil handy, I want you to circle yesterday's date because the Democrats finally seem to be getting their shit together and yesterday was the first sign. In a rare showing of unity, the Democrats hit the talking head shows with a unified, concise message. There was no beating around the bush (no pun intended), no parsing of words, and no nuance to their message. It was truly a sight to behold. The popular topic of the day was the Abramoff scandal and the Democrats were ready to go.

For me, it began with Sen. Charles Schumer on Meet the Press. Schumer wasted no time and few words setting the record straight.

Very nice. Short, direct, and unequivocating. But the real coup de grace came a little later in the morning when DNC Chair Howard Dean appeared on CNN's Late Edition and Wolf Blitzer tried the same approach.

Ahhhhh! It's going to be a good year, I can feel it already. [Snif...Sniff] What's that I smell? Could it be the Republican party crashing and burning? One can only hope.

SIDENOTE: As you may know, Mrs. kissfan is a math teacher and she says that the Republicans are trying to play a game of guilt by the transitive property. What's the transitive property, you ask? Well, that's the mathematical rule that states If a=b and b=c, then a=c. Thereby, the Republicans are trying to say that if Abramoff represented Indian Tribes and Indian tribes donated to Democrats, then Abramoff donated to Democrats. Too bad for them, it's not that simple. Consider this a little bonus for all you math geeks out there.
