On OPB this morning I heard a story that said the Senate Democrats are losing their “supermajority”, the filibuster-proof 60 votes, because of Republican Scott Brown’s election in Massachusetts this week. Supermajority? Who are they kidding? The Democratic Party is so fractured as to make it impotent. With progressives on one side and “Blue Dogs” on the other of nearly every major issue – abortion, health care, gay marriage, gun control, immigration – it’s no surprise that one year after the “Democratic Takeover” nothing has happened. Too bad the Democrats can’t agree on ANYTHING, or we might actually see some of this “Change” that Obama promised. At least the Republicans got things done with their “tow the line or you’re out” mentality.
