Not Buying What They're Selling

The Democrats are once again going to entertain a series of mostly meaningless, symbolic votes on the Iraq war.

Of course, they haven't fulfilled any of their campaign promises aside from raising the minimum wage, but it's obviously easier to pander to the far left netroots on the Iraq war than it is to engage in earmark reform or other real work.

This piece in the LA Times points out that this Congress' approval ratings are even lower than those of the Republican Congress it supplanted, and attributes the problem to the "slow pace of change."

Could it be, rather, that the American people simply don't like the kind of "change" -- ie forcing defeat in Iraq -- that the Democrats are selling?
