What They Did Last Fall

Krugman: "By running for the U.S. Senate, Katherine Harris, Florida's former secretary of state, has stirred up some ugly memories. And that's a good thing, because those memories remain relevant. There was at least as much electoral malfeasance in 2004 as there was in 2000, even if it didn't change the outcome. And the next election may be worse."

"Our current political leaders would suffer greatly if either house of Congress changed hands in 2006, or if the presidency changed hands in 2008. The lids would come off all the simmering scandals, from the selling of the Iraq war to profiteering by politically connected companies. The Republicans will be strongly tempted to make sure that they win those elections by any means necessary. And everything we've seen suggests that they will give in to that temptation." [NYT]

I think the lids of some of these simmering scandals would come off if the pansy democrats would get off their butts and serve their constituents and their country. I don't care if repugnicans want to call them shrill, or call them worse names...bring these stories to light, and stand up for a nation at war with itself.
