Intraparty civil war: It's a story line journalists often employ, though usually about only one party, the Re publicans.
Thus when three-term Sen. Bob Bennett failed to get enough votes at the Utah GOP convention, we were told that he was the victim of a purge by right-wing activists, despite his largely conservative record.
That was a legitimate story; there will be more as Tea Party activists challenge politicians they regard as establishment Republicans.
But the real civil war this year is going on in the Democratic Party -- and it is going largely unreported.
One reason is that it isn't a clear-cut battle between two easily identifiable forces. Rather, it resembles guerrilla conflicts.
So in this month's primaries, we saw a skirmish between Arkansas Senate incumbent Blanche Lincoln and Lt. Gov. Bill Halter, who suggested but didn't quite promise he'd support the card-check bill that would effectively abolish the secret ballot in unionization elections -- and whose campaign received something like $1 million from unions. That race will be decided in the June 8 runoff.

It’s been a lot of fun to hear Carville rip into the bamites. Carville is the voice of the Clintons.
Carvile is the voice of Louisiana.
Carvile is the voice of Satan.
Carvile is the voice of the Reptilian race.
Nonsense! Carville would throw Louisiana on the dungheap for the democrat party and the Clintons.
I made the case yesterday or the day before that everything that comes from the newly awakened Car-Vile is designed with the overall strategy of helping Hillary’s chances in 2012. The “distancing” project has begun. Yeah, Carley, the Lousiana thing is there, but it’s a pretext for Carville getting face-time. Carville is functioning PERFECTLY as the
surrogate doing Hillary’s bidding. He sure ain’t doin’ it for anyone or anything else except Hillary and himself.
And looked at objectively, his crit of Obama doesn’t go nearly far enough, and his/other dem or mod criticism either
go to the relevant details: Obama has PERSONALLY signed off involvement with this potential Eco-disaster of the decade until the thing was already MORE THAN ONE MONTH IN THE MAKING. Previously , he just wanted to assure the American people that his “boot was on the throat” of BP, attempting to stoke populist support of his demagogue’s hold on power.
Instead of being a leader and admitting his administration had no knowledge of how to help BP (big contributor of his)
stop or control the leak, and going on to assign itself to some of the myriad OTHER problems like aiding Jindal in getting permits to allow the Army Corps of ENgineers do something to protect the coastline, or a hundred other things, Obama just allowed this ‘nuisance’ to his hegemony
to continue on and ‘thicken’ in its complexity and uncontrollability. It just makes him look once again, like what he is: an impatient narcissistic punk-demagogue.
When the battle is over, we can go in and bayonet the winners/survivors.
Carville is the voice of the Serpent in the Garden of Eden, a.k.a. his moniker - SerpentHead
