Yesterday Gave Us A Short Preview Of What The Next Two Years Are Going To Be Like

Democrats are planning to meet with George McGovern[1] to try to figure out how to surrender to the terrorists in Iraq by June:

George McGovern, the former senator and Democratic presidential candidate, said Thursday that he will meet with more than 60 members of Congress next week to recommend a strategy to remove U.S. troops from Iraq by June.

John “Okinawa” Murtha[2] is trying to take the relatively moderate Steny Hoyer’s leadership position:

“Current Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) was not similarly hesitant, formally announcing his bid for the Majority Leader’s office early Wednesday morning and confidently predicting that he will secure the post when Democrats vote in leadership election on Nov. 16.

“I think I’m going to win,” Hoyer said in an interview Wednesday. The Maryland lawmaker, who has served as Minority Whip since 2003, said “over a majority” of House incumbents as well as newly-elected lawmakers “have indicated that they would be supportive of me.”

But Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.) — who stunned fellow lawmakers when he announced in June that he would campaign for the Majority Leader post against Hoyer — re-affirmed his own interest in the office Wednesday.

“I’m working diligently now trying to convince people that I’d make a good balance” to the leadership team, Murtha said in an interview with National Public Radio.

Charles Rangel, the man who’s about to take over the incredibly powerful House Ways and Means committee insulted everyone who lives in Mississippi. Of course, if you’d asked him about South Carolina, Arkansas, Georgia — anywhere in the South, he probably would have said exactly the same thing because a lot of Northern liberals tend to look down on the South:

Rangel, D-N.Y., was quoted in a Thursday article in The New York Times, saying: “Mississippi gets more than their fair share back in federal money, but who the hell wants to live in Mississippi?”

Just prepare yourself because stories of this sort are going to be an every day occurrence for the next 2 years. It doesn’t matter how much the Democrats talk about being moderate. It doesn’t matter that a lot of the Democrats who beat Republicans on Tuesday were moderates. Liberals run the show in the Democratic Party and they’re going to behave just as obnoxiously as the left has over the last couple of years. But, this time around, they’re going to be the people in charge.
