If the Democrats win in two weeks, there will be lots of advice in the Op/Ed pages telling them they should forego anything smacking of revenge, reach across the aisle, work with Republicans, and generally be meek and kind.

In the first place, when did the Republicans do that over the past six years, and where was that advice to them? In the second place, as Lance so clearly states, none of the moderate Republicans in the House are likely to be left afloat; the 200 or so Republicans who will be re-elected are the farthest of the far right. That's the way primary elections work these days.

Nope, I like the Dixie Chicks' reply:

Susie Madrak has Krugman's take on that advice.

Another source for Krugman's full column here.

Wow. I haven't listened to that in a while. I forgot how moving it is.

Yeah, I bought the CD for my wife. It's very good from top to bottom. The first 4 songs are particularly memorable.

I buy everything they come out with and bought this one based on your comments way back when. It is good and powerful and more power to them. I think that if things go the way we all hope and they way they "seem" to be heading, this should be the new anthem for the Dems!! If you have the time, access this morning's Boston Globe (www.bostonglobe.com) and look at the article on the front page titled, "roundly condemned, mudslinging ads..." It is enough to make you sick--and sadly, there is a large segment of the population that buys into this........disgusting!
