Hold your impotent rage and press (D)

Headline in the NYT following the State of the Union address:

DEMOCRATS PLEDGE COOPERATION

Uh…because previously, they've been doing what, exactly? Not cooperating? As far as I can see, there's not a single issue the President has pushed since the Dems took power that they haven't given in on. They caved on Gonazales. They caved on FISA. They caved on war funding. They caved on Mukasey. They caved on an Iraq timetable. They caved on S-CHIP. They caved on Alito. They caved on the Military Commissions Act. They caved on credit reform. They caved on the budget, on Blackwater, on Guantanamo. They caved on impeachment. And now they're set to cave on tax cuts. I can scarcely think of a single thing that Bush has wanted since the Democrats attained their majority that they haven't given him, and this is against a lame duck president with no legacy veep, whose party is in disarray and whose popularity rating is historically low. More than ever before, they hardly deserve the name of 'opposition party', and for all their talk of 'change', now that Dodd and Kucinich are gone, they have pretty much no conscience, no standard-bearer to remind them in whose interests they're supposed to be acting.

If ever there was a time for a headline to read "DEMOCRATS TO BUSH: FIND YOUR EAR AND STICK A DICK IN IT", it's right now. But instead? "PLEDGE COOPERATION".

Just further proof that Jonah Goldberg is wrong: how can we have liberal fascism in this country? We don't even have liberalism.
