"We Have Come to Play Hardball, and We Have Brought Our Wiffle Ball Bats."

Good comments on Republican cowardice from Burt Prelutsky:

I'm afraid that when it comes to playing hardball, the Republicans simply aren't in the same division, let alone the same league, as Democrats. Partly that's because the liberals are in control of the MSM, so that when a liberal accuses conservatives of, say, setting out to starve your granny, he can count on the New York Times, the alphabet networks and the numbskulls on "The View" to provide him with a gigantic bullhorn and the world's biggest echo chamber.

But it is also the result of Republican politicians being as gutless as the kid who allows himself to be constantly cowed by the schoolyard bully. The mere notion of being called a racist, a fascist or a homophobe is enough to send them scurrying for cover like a flock of Chicken Littles. Heck, even I wind up wanting to see these punks pantsed, dumped into a trash barrel or given a well-deserved wedgie.

The sad political fact is that if you give a Democrat an inch, he'll take a yard. Give a Republican a yard and he'll resist taking an inch.
