Would They Really Do It?

Harry Reid says that he thinks he has the votes to pass the pork bill.

His estimate includes two -- count 'em, two -- Republican senators.  That means that the "bipartisan" bill would boast two Republican votes out of the entire Congress.

Would the Democrats really dare to try to ram a bill that musters only 37% support down the public's throat (and the Republicans')?  Wow.  Talk about the Chicago way coming to Capitol Hill . . .

Bad for the country; great politics -- for the Republicans, at least.
