In my Townhall column today I look at what has happened to the Democrats’ public face since winning the Congress.
In just one week’s time, I have witnessed the transformation of the Congress won by Democrat moderates to the Congress run by Democrat moonbats.
When the Democrats won back control of the House and Senate last week, they did so not in a massive blowout devastating every opponent they faced, but as Hugh Hewitt put it, as a result of “a long series of bitter fights most of which were lost by very thin margins.”
The recipe for success consisted of recruiting a slate of moderate to conservative Democrats to run for open and vulnerable seats. In some cases those Democrats actually ran to the right of their Republican opponents. Another element of their strategy was to hide their liberal leaders. In the final days of the campaign the only place speaker-to-be Nancy Pelosi could be found was on a Photoshopped milk carton on a few dozen conservative blogs…Within a week of their winning election, Democrats shed their moderate masks.
