The KosCaucus

By on 6.16.06 | 8:41AM

The ever-clever and insightful Hugh Hewitt has dubbed the fringe Democrats in Congress the KosCaucus. Brilliant. Their core membership was on display yesterday in both Houses, where the likes of Boxer, Byrd, Feingold, Harkin, Kerry and Kennedy in the Senate and Harmon, Murtha and Waters were undercutting our finest and bravest's efforts overseas. We're hearing that despite the embarrassing defeats yesterday in votes and in the media, Kerry in the Senate and Pelosi in the House both felt things went well. Heh. If there is something to be said for Pelosi's efforts, it's that she appears to solidified her position as House leader of the Democrats. This was something many of us weren't seeing even six months ago. What we're hearing now is that Pelosi is now in a stronger position politically within her own conference than she has been in the past 18 months. That says more about the state of Democrats than it does her mediocre political and strategic skills.
