mehlman speaks the truth for once

It's usually not hard to tell when outgoing Republican National Committee Ken Mehlman is lying. If his lips are moving in front of a camera, microphone, or journalist, it's usually a pretty sure bet that he's applying the usual Republican slipperiness with truth.

But yesterday, talking to a bunch of GOP governors, Mehlman said something that may actually be true. Speaking about the 2006 elections, he said, "If we shrug our shoulders and say, 'It was just a fluke, a perfect storm of factors out of our control,' then we will lose again in 2008. If that is the approach we take, then we are destined to spend far more than one term in the minority. And we as a party will deserve it."

Clearly, the GOP already DESERVES to spend more time in minority, and not just in Congress or state houses. The Bush-Cheney-DeLay track record of failing to even TRY to prevent 9/11, of turning the Clinton-Gore surplus into the greatest deficit in the history of the Republic, of supporting torture, of electoral chicanery, of screwing the poor and giving to the rich like dooH niboR, of refusing to even start trying to mitigate the effects of climate change, and of lying lying lying to us at every step of the way has earned them so much negative karma that they deserve to be in a minority for 50 years.
