A warning from the RNC: Democrats might be just like us

What happens if the Democrats win in November?

As we were saying ...

Ken Mehlman has just sent another e-mail message to Republicans inviting them to imagine what would happen if Democrats won control of the House or Senate in November. "Impeachment. Cutting and running from the War on Terror. Key defense systems dismantled. Tax cuts repealed. Speaker Pelosi. That's what America could look like one year from now if Democrats take the majority."

Among the horribles the Republican National Committee marches before supporters: an indefinite delay in confirming a replacement for "retired" Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens. As the RNC reports in an imaginary newspaper from the Democratic-controlled future, "The presidents first nominee to replace him never was granted a committee hearing and withdrew her name from consideration."

Yes, and that sort of thing that would never happen if the Republicans were in control, right?
