Republican odds for picking up additional Seante seats in the 2006 mid term elections increased markedly today. Congress Daily (Subscription required) is reporting that Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid announced changes in the Democrat's leadership structure. Among the changes, Barbara Boxer will become the Deputy Minority Whip with Patty "Bin Laden's Really a Hero" Murrary (Al Quaeda) assuming control of the Speakers Group as assistant floor leader. The Speakers' Group is a quasi-official part of the Democratic Caucus made up of the party's more liberal members, including Sens. Edward Kennedy (Taxachusetts), Frank Lautenberg and Jon Corzine (Peoples Republic of New Jersey), Hillary "The Bitch" Rodham Clinton (The Big Red Fruit), Boxer and liberal deity, Minority Whip Richard Durbin (Daleyville). Members of the group meet on a regular basis to map out the parties floor speaking strategy and generally act as the party's standard bearers and use their floor speeches as a way to lay out the Democratic agenda.
Of course, this is going to sit real well with Jeff Bingaman (New Mexico), Kent Conrad (North Dakota), Herbert Kohl (Wisconsin), Bill Nelson (Florida), Ben Nelson (Nebraska), and Debbie Stabenow (Michigan) who now have to run for re-election on the record and public actions of these liberal loons.
Oh well, six more senate seats is just fine by me.
