A month ago the Republicans had plans to take over the world and now thanks to the ignorant mutterings of good ol'boy redneck Senator Lott they are firmly on the defensive. This is a situation the Democrats can't lose at. If Lott stays on as majority leader democrats will be able to link every conservative legislation to his racist background. Keeping the Republicans true colors in full vivid display for the whole country to see.
But now it looks like the jackals are closing in on the old bull. They've been circling looking for signs of weakness and this weekend they started their attack. Senator Don Nichols has called for a new leadership vote and the others are moving into help with the kill. In all likely hood Nichols will get the vote as majority leader. Another win for the Democrats. Nichols is a true firing breathing conservative who thinks congress is there for the benifit of rich white hetrosexuals. Let him bring their programs of hate and intolerance front and center. It will only turn off the moderates who have only been supporting the Republicans because of the so called war on terror.
Check out the WashingtonPost online article about the compassionate conservatives plans to make the poor pay higher taxes. Apparently the social securtity tax we pay so much of isn't a real tax and shouldn't be counted in calculating the tax burden. 2004 just keeps looking better and better.
Tax The Poor!!
