Desperate politicians do desperate deeds...
As November draws closer and closer, the Republicans become more and more desperate. They decided to tie their star to Bush's war wagon a couple of months ago in a caucus with Karl Rove and the White House. They decided they would all hang together or they would all hang separately.

Now, that decision does not look wise. The war strategy is unraveling like a cheap suit. The demise of Joe Lieberman intensified their paranoia. They silently cheer for more terrorist threats. Anything that will save them from the wrath of the voters.

One can only imagine the diversions they will create between now and election day. However, they are running scared. They see their political lives flashing before their eyes. That realization is more scary for them than all the al Qaeda in the world.

1. THEIR fear is a tremendous danger to us all.
The fear that they will lose power, the fear that they will be subjected to justice, and punishment. That is a clear and present danger to us all. I fully expect their worst, absolute worst actions, will soon be upon us as the midterm election rushes toward them.

2. They are like an abusive spouse. And, WE are the abused victim.
Most at risk when we decide to kick them out.
