The Democrats are Doomed
Overblown rhetoric no doubt, but it ain't mine. It's the sub-head of a TNR article that tries to argue in favor of passing the cap-and-trade bill this year. So what's their definition of "Democrats are doomed?"
"Worst of all, Democrats are likely to lose at least a few seats in November--and with them, their chances of overcoming a GOP filibuster--so this may be their last chance for some time to set limits on greenhouse gases."
With "doomed" now wasted, what superlative will TNR use if Democrats actually lose the majority too?2010 Posted by JohnGalt at January 18, 2010 2:46 PM
