The Democrat Borg

If all the Democrat Senators, Congressmen, Presidential Candidates and KosKids sound alike, here's a clue: They are alike. Exactly. How much alike?

Well, let's see. For an example, Democrat Senators vote together this much:

97.8% - Dick Durbin (D-IL)
97.1% - Ben Cardin (D-MD)
97.1% - Daniel Inouye (D-HI)
97.1% - Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ)
97.0% - Joe Biden (D-DE)
97.0% - Sherrod Brown (D-OH)
96.7% - Jack Reed (D-RI)
96.7% - Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI)
96.6% - Hillary Clinton (D-NY)
96.6% - Chuck Schumer (D-NY)

My, my! Ms. Clinton votes with her buddies 96.6% of the time. She's that partisan. A reformer. An independent-minded outsider. Snort.

Well. Another woman in Congress wins the award for most partisan: Nancy Pelosi, who voted an astounding 100% of the time Democrat.

Here's the thing, though. Looking at Democrats generally--from the blogosphere to Congress to the MSM (82% partisan)--you know what the opinion on any given subject will be on any given day. They are that predictable.

Democrats remind me of the "rebels" at high school. They all wore black and punked out their hair and they all looked the....same.

Don't expect any Democrat to come up with an innovative take, idea or solution. For all their talk about being progressive, I do believe they are the true conservatives--that is they want to conserve the vision they've had for America and do the same thing they've always done.

Voters should expect the same results we have always got should a Democrat end up in charge.

Hmmmm... interesting. Could it mean that Democrats and liberals in general are the partisan ones? Could do, yes. Could it also perhaps mean that the party with the majority sets the agenda and can use their majority to push bills through, meaning that the party with the minority are able to withdraw the whip for certain bills and not waste their time trying to force their members not to vote for bills which are going to pass anyway - and incidentally, could make them unpopular in their home districts?

Considering Republicans were the more partisan party in the 109th, 108th and 107th Congress, I'd say the latter. If the Democrats put the "party" in "partisanship", they've only been doing it since January 2007.
