Delay on Democrats

Here's the embattled Republican at a fundraiser, speaking of the Democratic Party:
"No ideas. No leadership. No agenda. And, just in the last week, we can now add to that list, no class," DeLay said, a reference to Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid's remark to school children that President Bush was "a loser."
That sort of statement is inflammatory and politically incorrect - and largely accurate, although I would have preferred if he had avoided labeling all of the Democrats with 'no class' based on the unclassy Reid. The Democrats would do well to remember what happened to the Republicans in the '98 mid-terms, when they found themselves in a very similar spot, and defined themselves largely as the permanent opposition.
