Reading Mr. Schlicter's column here makes me think about how Dems relate to Repubs and vice versa. Namely, the Demwits are ALWAYS on the attack, both in public and behind the scenes. I hope I'm wrong about this, but it certainly appears that the Repubs do nothing of the sort -- not in public, anymore than by token, or certainly behind the scenes. WEEEELLLLLLL . . . that has to stop!! It's time the Republicans open the can of No More Mr. Niceguy and start taking pages -- whole chapters -- right out of the Demwits' playbook!! We need to start doing the chess game thing and be several steps ahead of them. We need to start laying traps. We need to start playing the media in spite of their leftwing owners. "We" the Congress, that is!!!!
