    There are a lot of articles analyzing what happened in the midterm election but this one contains some language I find agreeable:

    "Fairly or not, the face of the Democratic party has been Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi. Not only were these three unappealing personalities prone to gratuitous slurs and strange outbursts, but their politics were demagogic and far out of the mainstream. They should and will soon disappear from the American political landscape and recede back into the mediocrity from which they somehow emerged."
    JamesL and Tom B like this.
  2. Maybe the people are finally waking up. The Obama's, the Reid's, the Pelosi's and the like have been around forever, and were identified long ago for those who care to listen.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.

    For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist.

    A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague." -- Cicero 106-46 B.C.

    And when Obama won a second term, the face of the Democratic party had been Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi.

    You mean like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity? (I have more)
  5. Limbaugh is the most popular person on radio. He has the contract to prove it.

    I don't really agree with the premise of the article anyway. As odious as Reid, Pelosi and DWS are, this election was about Obama and a government that seemed to have turned on its own citizens.

    What does popularity have to do with it? Ivan the Terrible was popular.

    Neither of those two individuals is paid to represent the interests of their people in public office. Both are paid to give an opinion on the actions of elected officials. If their opinions aren't wanted, they quickly go out of business or lose gobs of money (like Air America, NYT, NPR, etc).

    We have to listen (and our lives are affected) to Pelosi and Reid whether or not we care to hear from them.
