    Three staffers working for embattled Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) were asked by security officers to leave an event in downtown Washington on Thursday after they tried to display large campaign signs just as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was about to speak.
    The aides were holding lawn signs that defended Waters from the ethics charges she is facing in the House.
    “Let’s fight for Maxine Waters,” read a headline on the signs above a large picture of the congresswoman. Smaller headings read: “No improper action. No benefit. No failure to disclose. No one influenced. No case!”
    Pelosi was appearing outside the Historical Society of Washington, D.C., where she addressed an X Prize awards ceremony honoring the winners of a contest to build a safe car that gets at least 100 miles per gallon in fuel efficiency. The staffers entered the outdoor area where Pelosi was scheduled to speak and departed without incident when asked to leave minutes later.
    Waters told The Hill afterward that the staffers had been displaying the signs at the annual legislative conference for the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, which was held at the Washington convention center a few blocks away. “It ain’t about Nancy. It’s about black people,” Waters said.

    With all the healthcare and stimulus package shenanigans it's pretty much fate that the Dems temporarily turn on one another. I personally understand why Pelosi's people would not want those signs there. It's all about the economy right now. If these actions the Dems have taken to improve our economy is actually working, they are not working soon enough. I suspect the Dems will regroup after November and watch the new Repubs and the old attack eachother and figure out a way to play off of that.

    Democrats cobbled together a coalition of unlikely fellows--pro gun anti abortion fiscal conservatives--to gain power. Now they are falling apart of their own internal contradictions.

    But they must be destroyed, totally and forever. The American People must never allow the Democrats to control any part of government. THey have proven themselves feckless, corrupt, incapable of governing.

    it's also kind of funny to see him talk about dems eating their own (which Dems ALWAYS do....) while the repubs are busily imploding.

    Kinda reminds me of when the Republicans held the reins of power and self destructed.
    It was more prevalent on the state level. That's how they lost the senate here in VA.

    Ignore her. She's a troll with nothing substantive to contribute.

    The GOP is going through a long overdue period of readjustment and realignment with its base. This is healthy.
    The Dems are about to experience a humiliation so complete they will be a nugatory force on politics for years.

    This seems to apply to all human beings in general and has been for eons as I look around ALL the news sources daily. As you say, "feckless, corrupt, and incapable of governing". Well many do 'govern' for themselves and their pals. The citizens seem to be secondary, and we are fed just enough BS to keep us from a full blown revolution.
    It would seem that evolution is now taking steps backwards.

    We'll know in about 48 days which side has truly fallen apart.

    Good luck with that, Dims!
