Wisdom from the Right

This seems right from David Brooks, arguing that the American people:

...know that one party believes in its platform and the other party does not. The Democrats, led by Tom Daschle, sold their soul to win this election, and parties that sell their souls to win usually end up losing. They secretly wanted to roll back the Bush tax cut but didn't have the guts to say so. They wanted to oppose the president on Iraq but didn't have the guts to say so. They might have lost key seats if they had articulated these positions. But they lost these seats anyway, along with their self-respect.

My point exactly. Shame on them. Daschle should go as well, but probably won't because the senate, unlike the house, is so reluctant to overthrow its leaders.

Well the publicans sold their souls too. Their lying about the whole SS "privatization" thing, for example, is well documented. They just make better liars for some reason.
