When We Can't Win, We'll Act Like We Did

The Washington Times published a revealing blurb about the strategy Senate Democrats will take in the next session of Congress -- pretending they won the last election:

Senate Democrats Monday signaled they would continue to try and unofficially oversee the Bush administration.

Sen. Byron L. Dorgan, D-N.D., and Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., announced several oversight hearings on a range of subjects next hear.

The Democratic leadership in the Senate claim that the Republicans in Congress have not exercised their oversight responsibilities, but that's not why they've scheduled these hearings. The GOP has been happy enough with the performance of the Bush administration. The Democrats simply can't handle the fact that they've been sent packing three election cycles in a row. In order to make themselves feel better, they plan on holding circus-atmosphere hearings to air their complaints on TV. They're hoping you tune them in to hear their bitch sessions about the GOP.

You may as well. You're paying for them.
