There is much guarded joyfulness in the ranks of the Democrats today.

Not because they have assembled a winning team, or because they have winning ideas.

It's not because what they want for the country is what the country wants for itself or because they have turned a new leaf and started placing their constituents needs above their own voracious appetite for political power. The hopefulness of the Democrat party is not that it will WIN the House or Senate, but that the Republicans will LOSE it. What is this country coming to? "We have to go back to 1974 (during Watergate) to find such a favorable environment," says James Carville, who ran Bill Clinton's 1992 presidential campaign. "If we can't win in this environment, we have to question the whole premise of the party."

    And sadly, they are right: They don't make 'em much worse than Dubya!

    Hi Helen!

    Actually I kind of agree with the article that CH posted over on his site. Check out today's post at

    But I agree, Republicans left their creed a long time ago and deserve the price they will pay.

"Snipet" (pronounced: snipe - it) is not a word.It is a derivative of two words: "Snipe" and "Snippet".

Miriam Webster defines Snipe as: to aim a carping or snide attack, or: to shoot at exposed individuals (as of an enemy's forces) from a usually concealed point of vantage.

Miriam Webster defines Snippet as: : a small part, piece, or thing; especially : a brief quotable passage.

In short, "Snipets" are brief, snide shots at exposed situations from a concealed vantage point.
