Byron York reports on a rally held recently in Washington by our friends at (WeWon'tEver)MoveOn.org. The rally, organized at the suggestion of Sen. Robert Byrd's office, was more like a parody of a religious tent meeting complete with (and we're not kidding here) Sen. Byrd shouting Praise God! and Hallelujah! Other Senate Dems joined in the revival as well (Boxer, Durbin, Kennedy, Clinton).
What has them so stirred up that they're having apocalyptic visions? Nothing less than the GOP's insistence that Senate Dems respect the Constitution and over 200 years of tradition regarding the confirmation of judicial nominees.
After the Dems' resounding loss last November, countless words were expended speculating what adjustments the party would/should make in order to be more palatable to more of the electorate. It seems clear that—at least in the Senate, and possibly in the party as a whole (given the presence of likely 2008 candidate HRC)—the Dems have concluded that they must move even further to the left.
If only we could get the MSM to report this stuff, the GOP's majority would be assured for years to come.
