Uhhh, Glenn...

...tell us how you really feel, won'tcha?

Glenn Greenwald - Political Blogs and Opinions - Salon
It isn't only -- or even principally -- the "Blue Dogs" which make the "Democratic Congress" nothing but an enabling instrument of the Bush White House and its right-wing policies. Far worse are the establishment-defending, soul-less, belief-less, self-perpetuating "liberal Senators" like Feinstein who render the concept of "opposition party" nothing more than a deceitful illusion. Dianne Feinstein is the drained and Bush-enabling face of the 2007 Democratic Congress.
The inimitable Mr. Greenwald is spot on in his analysis - far too many so-called Democrats are closet autocrats who agree, perhaps unknowingly, with the basic tenets of authoritarian conservatism. Viz, "we the people" need to be ruled with a strong hand lest we fuck up the sweet deal these Beltway denizens have struck with the Devil, otherwise known as "business as usual." And nothing short of a Congressional Revolution will change things in any substantive way. Like a computer operating system in deadlock, there is no way to recover but to shut down and reboot.
