Not That The Media Has Noticed, But Civil War Is Breaking Out In The Democratic Party

The old saying goes Fascism is forever descending upon America, but landing in Europe.

Similarly for the media wish-casters, Civil war is forever threating the GOP but engulfing the Democrat Party.

"Moderate," "conservative" Democrats up in arms over liberal revolt against tax cuts.

"A clear majority of the U.S. House of Representatives supports this plan," Boren said in a statement. "We are allowing the liberal wing of the Democratic caucus to hold these critically needed tax cuts hostage."

Democratic leaders, he added, "are either not listening to what the voters are saying, or they are not interested in doing what is best for the American economy."

Outgoing Representative Michael McMahon of NY-13 (beaten by Michael Grimm, one of the guys I got out the vote for) had some choice words for the revolting liberals. (See what I did there?) He called them, and I quote, "petulant children."

Moved From Previous Post To Here, Where It Belongs: On the House rejecting the Obama/GOP compromise on taxes -- I figure that the Democratic House Caucus is now almost purged of any moderates or anyone facing any kind of real challenge from the right. Their best political play might just be to let the new Republican House pass this. Then they can say they "fought" and refused to compromise (and all those other things the media praises, or at least doesn't criticize, when liberals do it, but excortiate conservatives for doing).

That would work out well for us. The Democrats will further build their reputation as the party of tax and spend, and the Republicans will build their reputation as tax cutters. (And, I dearly hope, spending cutters too.)

A Democrat Party purged of any moderate members is exactly what we want. We want Pelosi/Rangel/Waters/Weiner/Frank to be the face of the party.
