Eric Massa (D-NY) is set to resign today. If he has not yet tendered his resignation, he should not do so.

At least not if he is being forced out because of his health care vote, which is what he alleged over the weekend in a radio interview, as reported by Hotline...

The Democratic base has convinced itself that the problem is that Obama has not succeeded in passing health care legislation and other items on his agenda. The possibility that their agenda is being rejected by voters never enters their minds.

Here’s a pretty good analysis of where the Democratic Party stands, by ...

The Internet hasn’t had this much fun since Arlen Specter jumped off the Republican ship onto the sinking Democratic ship last April.

Now we get to watch the leading lights of the Democratic base attack Evan Bayh on his way out.  I guess they just weren’t that into him:
