The Democrats' problem...

Eve Fairbanks hits the nail on the head in her latest column in the Washington Examiner.

The Democrats have that problem big-time. They never got over the 2000 election, and now, they are getting even angrier as they find out that being in power doesn't mean the problems will be solved easily.

That said, on the right, there is a need for serious anger-management work as well. On immigration, tempers are extremely hot, some ugly stuff has been said, and now, neither side can really back down.

Too bad we can't impose a 30-day cooling-off period for debates.

I have this horrible feeling conservatives have discovered that aping the bad behavior of the far left is a way to get much needed attention. Both sides are light naughty children having a temper tantrum in the visit with Santa line at the local shopping mall.

Sorry - "Like" not "Light".

As the article states, Reid has made himself the poster boy for "Why We Fight". I think Dennis Miller was right about him.

And as you said, I believe both sides have gone too far down that angry road to turn back. A win in Iraq might calm the tempers some, but the bitterness will remain.
