Memo to Democrats

Today Bush said:

I will reach out to every one who shares our goals.

Translation: My way or the highway.

Alternate translation: You're either with us or against us.

For Democrats in the Senate:

Any "compromise" you try to achieve on various bills inevitably gets stripped out by DeLay's goons in the conference committee. Amendments should be written as land mines (metaphorical, of course) for the Republicans to trip on, not because any of them will end up being law.

For Democrats in the House and Senate: If you vote for the Republican agenda, you cannot later credibly criticize it. That's just the way it is...
