Looking For A Theme - "Bring on the noise, bring on da funk"

*
For lawmakers facing mid-term elections, the Oscar winning song "It's hard out here for a pimp" might resonate. What they wear might be different but some politicians, Republican and Democrat, have a lot in common with pimps. The Democrats have so far failed to capitalize on the woes facing Republicans. With all that is known about the GOP and the Bush administration, the prospects for Democrats in the mid-term elections look far from encouraging. After quickly falling in line to support the decision to go to war and rubber-stamp the Patriot Act, they lack the voice to condemn the abuses and failures of the administration. Their statements fail to stir people. They are making noise but it lacks a beat. The president's popularity rating down to 34% and Republican lawmakers up for reelection are shying away from hanging on to his coattail. And the Democrats are reported to be working on a legislative manifesto! "News about GOP political corruption, inept hurricane response and chaos in Iraq has lifted Democrats' hopes of winning control of Congress this fall. But seizing the opportunity has not been easy, as they found when they tried to unveil an agenda of their own." Enough to make the morning cup taste sour.
