    not so clear though, who's controlling the Republicans. An arguement made that it's not the 'religious right':

    I disagree with your opening premise. The far left does not control my party in my state, I am quite certain of that.

    The far left is controlling Congress, at least so far.

    when you consider the "far left" as anyone to the left of yourself, I suppose, from that perspective, you are right.

    Oh no, I'm speaking now of the 'moderates' like Hillary, not even mentioning Murtha and Co. Hillary & Edwards have been villified, even Obama has gotten some for not 'cutting the funding' from the left. Moveon has too much power, the DNC knows it, but not sure what to do about it.

    if the far left was running congress, the house would have chosen Murtha as their leader instead of Hoyer.

    Pelosi wanted Motor Mouth Murtha, but her own Dems voted against her wishes

    no kidding...and elected a much more moderate leader in his stead. Hence my comment.

    Do try and keep up.
