OK, so now that we've entered a post-partisan era does it apply to members within the same party?
If it does, someone needs to tell the National Republican Trust Fund PAC, pronto!
These guys are fire-spittin' mad that some Republicans are crossing the line to support the gigantoid stimulus package. It's like a crime against the party - and in the immortal words of Baretta, "Don't do the crime, if you can't do the time."
"Republican Senators are on notice," the group's director Scott Wheeler said. "If they support the stimulus package we will make sure every voter in their state knows how they tried to further bankrupt voters in an already bad economy."
On the list
So far that means three Republicans are on Wheeler's list. Maine Senators Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe and Pennsylvania Senator Arlen Specter. Collins was just re-elected so she'll escape Wheeler's wrath until 2014.
But Snowe and Specter? They're up in 2010.
After all, President Obama and Crist are appearing together in Florida to sell the package.
"Post-partisanship isn't about transcending left-right partisan loyalty. Instead, in both its original, and its evolving new meaning, it's substantially about generational change and generational equity."
Oh, of course.
