Republicans Eat Their Own, Part Three

New poll indicates that Olympia Snowe, one of the last of the Republican moderates and one of only two Republicans left in all of New England, would be soundly thrashed in a primary against a hypothetical “conservative.”  This, combined with pretend Republic Party chairman Michael Steele’s not-so-subtle threat against Joseph Cao, makes me wonder: who in the Democratic Party is currently in charge of having serious discussions with Senator Snowe, Congressman Cao and Senator Susan Collins?

  1. Your question begs another–is the Democratic Party even capable of that kind of organization? I say that with no small amount of sorrow as a longtime Democratic precinct chair and as someone who’s voted for every Democratic presidential candidate since Jimmy Carter (and would have voted for McGovern if I’d been six weeks older). Has there ever been a more feckless pair of legislative leaders than Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid?

  2. In the past, I would have said unequivocally no, the Democrats are not capable of ANY type of organization. However, given the way Obama managed to whip his campaign into shape, I’m not so sure. The Democrats may actually fail in their attempts to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory this time.
