Just in time for Limbaugh's show.  You just know he's ripping into him as we speak.

ECH:  We need to start a letter writing campaign to get Collins and/or Snow to jump ship as well.  Not to become Democrats though.  To become Independents.  I'm thinking with their buddy Specter now gone, they might be open to the idea.

Wasn't it RAW who said something to the effect of "The difference between a democrat and a republican is about 20 years"?
- So the New World Order does not actually exist?
- Oh it exists, and how!
Ask the slaves whose labour built the White House;
Ask the slaves of today tied down to sweatshops and brothels to escape hunger;
Ask most women, second class citizens, in a pervasive rape culture;
Ask the non-human creatures who inhabit the planet:
whales, bears, frogs, tuna, bees, slaughtered farm animals;
Ask the natives of the Americas and Australia on whose land
you live today, on whose graves your factories, farms and neighbourhoods stand;
ask any of them this, ask them if the New World Order is true;
they'll tell you plainly: the New World Order… is you!

That's what I was thinking, too.

That and, "It's a one-party system disguised as a two-party system."

I think he meant the other way around though.  Democrats becoming Republicans.

Yeah.  Except I don't think that really applies anymore.  The Baby Boomer generation are an entirely different animal.

I'm pretty sure it was something more like a liberal will become a conservative in 20 years if they dont change any ideas.

Correct. Which correlates with the Conservative mantra which holds that liberals are just inexperienced, young Conservatives ;-) RAW did post a comment after the 2006 election that basicaly said he was mildly hopeful to see the Democrats win over the Republicans. However, he held that was mostly because they appeared to be slightly more evolved for primates rather than being stuck in their '2nd circuit' like mosbunal of the GOP.

It was; however, it could easily be amended to, "when the conservative party pushes even further to the right, those who were conservative 20 years ago will now be considered liberals."

I was considered a moderate until everyone started moving their chairs.

I admit that I am becoming fiscally more conservative as I get older, but socially I am about as far left as you can get.

am I the only one that smells a rat?

a rat that smells alot like "reagan democrats" who will either water down the dems to the point of being (even more) impotent or cause an ideological split within the party that will guarantee GOP gains in the next couple of elections?
