Random thoughts and insights – always shaken, never stirred

The Bourbon Democrats

with one comment

Rumors abound that should Harry Reid be defeated – may it be so – that Charles Schumer of NY or Dick Durbin of IL will replace him as Democratic leader:

If Reid falls, a power vacuum will emerge in the Senate and, according to reports, Sens. Chuck Schumer and Richard Durbin want to fill it. Most political observers think Schumer is best positioned for the Senate majority leader post, but Durbin’s a close second.

Schumer, who is the most outpsoken liberal in the Senate, and Durbin, who has likened our troops to Nazis – true, he apologized, but only after being called on it – are poster children of the left. If this election goes as expected, it will be a repudiation of liberalism. Should either of these men take the leadership of the democrats in the senate, then it will be clear that the democrats will have learned nothing from the election.

Like the Bourbons, who famously forgot nothing, and learned nothing.

  1. Still awaiting Tuesdays elections. I hope to see several heads implode after the results come out (hopefully in what I consider the correct direction).
