Here's a little something that backs up what a lot of us liberals have been saying here for a long time: While people can be forgiven for thinking that both parties need to compromise more (the Dems have been doing all the compromising; the Republicans just say "no"), you can understand why they're frustrated with both parties. You can also see that Scott Brown's election was hardly a ringing endorsement of conservatism; it was more like a desperation cry from the voters who, seeing no other way out, are wildly swinging from one party to the other, seeking to punish whoever is in power...or who would be electing more liberal candidates if they weren't sitting home in disgust. And while (ahem!) certain conservative posters may delight in Obama's numbers, they should note his personal popularity. It doesn't take a lot of reading between the lines to realize that his low numbers stem from the fact that he is not liberal enough for a lot of us. The Dems' big problem is that enthusiasm edge. They need to find some liberal, transformative candidates that will actually give their party enough control in Washington to do something, instead of wallowing around in this Republican-Blue Dog morass we're stuck in. And now let's sit back and watch the teabaggers apply their spin.
