What the Dems Are Up To

It's amazing to see the agenda items that come slithering out of the shadows when Democrats believe they have the chance to win a presidential election.

After they get done reinstituting the (un)Fairness Doctrine, Jean Edward Smith advocates in today's NY Times a little Supreme Court packing. Heck, she should know all about it; she's the author of a book about F.D.R.

What's so entertaining about lefties is that they're so artless about their agenda:

If the current five-man majority persists in thumbing its nose at popular values, the election of a Democratic president and Congress could provide a corrective. It requires only a majority vote in both houses to add a justice or two.

First, since when did upholding a legislative ban on partial birth abortion, insisting on colorblindness when it comes to school assignments and the like constitute a "thumbing" of the nose at "popular values"? Second, haven't noticed Americans rioting in the streets. Third, how typical of lefties this whole idea is: When they don't like the outcome, they simply try to change the rules, a la Al Gore, Florida 2000.

If they think their causes are so popular, lets have a plebiscite on them and make it clear.

I expect that's the last thing they want. It would show them to be embarrassingly wrong.
