My name is Earle (and Farrakhan and Rangel)

Travis County, Texas, prosecutor Ronnie Earle, screwed up on the indictment announced last week against Tom Delay.  So, Earle has rushed through a second indictment to clean up his mistake on the first, this time charging Delay not with conspiracy, but with money—laundering.

Minister Louis Farrakhan is marching again with his sights this time on Bill Bennett.  Bennett was accused last week of being a racist.  Farrakhan has picked up Bennett's 'fumble' and is running for the end zone, but he's started the celebratory dance way too soon. 

Charlie Rangel has said that Dick Cheney is 'sick' 'mean' and 'evil' and should not hold his position as Vice President of the United States.

These are three prime examples of Democrats, as Cheney said yesterday, 'losing it.'  Earle is no Ken Starr.  Farrakhan is no Pat Robertson.  And Rangel is no, well, Tom Delay. 

Republicans are always accused of what Democrats do.  'Don't put an ideologue on the Supreme Court.'  Dems put Ruth Bader Ginsberg there.  'Don't allow a man who ran from military service to win the White House.'  Dems did with Clinton.  'Don't abuse your power.'  Dems did by swiping FBI files and utilizing IRS political audits during the '90s.  This accusatory strategy is born of desperation and the heart—breaking feeling that comes from being on the losing end of the scorecard time, after time, after time. 

The best chance for a loser to become a winner is to rebuild from the ground up.  That means cutting loose the 'stars' that have outlived their usefulness or lost some of their skills, but still set the tone for the rest of the team.  For the Dems, that means Kennedy, Byrd, Leahy, and others, have to be given their walking papers.  Of course, that will never happen. 

Continue, then, to expect the Left to continue 'losing it.'
