I get that many Ess Eff Dems don't mind that Blue Dog Democrats were among last Tuesday's big losers.

And they don't care if there's a bruising battle for the No. 2 slot in the minority leadership between moderate Maryland Democrat Steny Hoyer, the current majority leader, and uber-liberal Whip James Clyburn, D-S.C.
"Thankfully for Democrats, Republicans and conservative columnists don't get to pick who leads us," Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill quipped.
Now you know what lemmings would say if they had e-mail.
