Is The Rethuglican Empire Finally Finished?
"We've lost every advantage we've ever had" says a GOP pollster. Even Novakula has noticed the chunks of iceberg littering the deck.
Let's go to the videotape:
Boehner can't get his budget passed in the House:
Senator Mary Landrieu, of Louisiana, has basically promised to sink all of Bush's appointees in the Senate:
"Landrieu (D-LA) has threatened to hold all of President Bush’s executive-branch nominees hostage until the administration agrees to fully fund levee construction, flood control, and coastal restoration efforts. After Katrina, Bush pledged to build the levees 'higher and better,' but officials said last week 'there may not be enough money to fully protect the entire region.'”
And it looks like the Dear Leader is now the Dear Leaker, and his poll numbers are tanking (a-gain) (watch the McClellatron 3000 get pummeled by the WH Press Corps here). Immigration "reform" has been stalled in the Senate by a sect of whiny Republicans. DeLay's departure doesn't make life as a Rethug any easier.
