"€œGod willing, with the force of God behind it, we shall soon experience a world
without the United States and Zionism."€ -- Iran President Ahmadi-Nejad

The Democrats look foolish and childish with their use on Tuesday of Rule 21. The party is floundering... they're flailing. They cannot get any traction...any footing. It kind of reminds of log rolling.

And I don't mean log rolling in the political sense where politicians are forced to balance their preferences on some issues against their preferences on others, knowing that it is unlikely that they will get their way on all of them; and they, therefore, make a concession to the other party on a less important topic in exchange for that other party's support on a more vital issue.

I mean this kind of log rolling:

Their behavior has become worse with each passing month of the Bush presidency. They are unaccustomed to be in this position of "powerlessness".... Republican presidency, senate, and congress. They don't know how to handle it. They don't like it.

The "party of no ideas" is reacting like a child who wants to take his ball and go home - with one big problem - they don't know how to get the damn ball back either.
