Thanks, National Democrats!

I was getting worried that conservatism, because of its necessary ties to the Republican party, was going to walk with the party through the desert for sometime. After all, a lot of good will and "political capital" has been squandered over the years, and not just by President Bush. But just as the Democrats float to the top, they show that it probably isn't because they are the cream. First, they will probably rescind the portion of the Contract with America that opens up the participation of the minority party in the House, even though their power play through parliamentary rules is part of what led to the Republican Revolution in 1994. Now they refuse to seat a seemingly clean, albeit self-adoring, black Senate appointee from Illinois who is political poison because he was appointed by a dirty Democrat Governor. President Obama will need to walk on water and turn carbon dioxide into beer in order to save his party from itself in 2010 and 2012.
