Dodd, over at Ipse Dixit, links to this idiotic editorial in the Louisville Courier-Journal, which includes an absolutely ludicrous statement. I sent them an e-mail.
...the nation's second most important political party ...
You are referring to the party that controls the White House, the House of Representatives, and a sizable majority of governorships. How does this translate to "second most important", as opposed to most important?
I understand your editorial board's obsessive need to flack for the Democratic Party, but do try to keep the facts straight when you are coordinating your releases with Terry McAuliffe and James Carville.
