Well, that Didn't Take Long

Seems like the feast has already begun:

A showdown over the House majority leader's post today has Democrats bitterly divided only a week after their party took control of Congress and has prompted numerous complaints that Speaker-designate Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) and her allies are using strong-arm tactics and threats to try to elect Rep. John P. Murtha (Pa.) to the job.

But I think it's just as likely the Washington media, after watching Republican penguins wander around in groups during a blizzard, are simply in an orgiastic frenzy now that things are happening. Conflict is cool! Let's roil the waters some more!

Then again, I quite clearly remember the last time Congress changed hands, and I don't recall anywhere near this much chaos. But I've been accused of selective memory before.

Well, considering their treatment of the Republicans, it's just as likely that they're just trying to get as many page views/papers sold as possible. Research, fact-checking, and even-handed analysis? From the Post?

And monkeys might fly out of my butt.

Murtha didn't win but they were all making nice as a group on the news. The GOP was doing the same thing yesterday when Trent Lott came out of hiding to get the 3rd place in the minority leadership of the senate. Oh I love the way that looks. Any how the vote was 25 - 24. The difference this time is that the news maniacs are all over tha place when they are not talking about OJ's new book.
