Getting in the Way of History

Nate Silver at makes a dutiful attempt at Republican groupthink in the upcoming stimulus debate:
"Better to let the Democrats be careful what they wish for, and make sure that they get it."
I think Nate's exactly right. Getting in the way of the Obama train right now would be political suicide for moderate Republican Senators, ie. Snowe, Collins, and Specter, and with Franken's win in MN (more on this later), the Dems will only need one of the three.

Patrick Ruffini at the Next Right sees this as an oppportunity.

And this morning Minority Leader Mitch McConnell attempted to flex some muscle.

All the while the RNC debates the tone deafness of "Barack the Magic Negro."
