GOP TAKES CONTROL OF STATE SENATE AS Two Dems Pull a NY Style Benedict Arlen

Turnabout is fairplay, and while this is only the New York State senate with no particular national ramifications yet, it at least wrestles a key liberal state's majority back from the democrats which could be an early indicator of dems bailing on Obama's Utopian clusterf*&&^

A majority that was snatched over ever so briefly in 2008, but now unexpectedly back in Republican hands after two "Benedict Arlen"-like democrats flip to caucus with State Republicans, leaving democrats in a lurch storming the chamber like children and threatening court fights.

I thought only republicans did that kind of stuff....according to democrats.

New York Post: "ALBANY -- Republicans appear to have retaken control of the state Senate this afternoon after two dissident Democrats crossed the aisle in a parliamentary coup.

'An historic change in leadership is taking place at this moment and a new bipartisan, coalition is being established that is bringing real reform to the Senate RIGHT NOW,' according to a news advisory sent out by the GOP.

The Associated Press reported that two Democrats -- Hiram Monserrate of Queens and Pedro Espada, Jr. of the Bronx -- are poised to announce that they have decided to caucus with the GOP out of anger at Senate Majority Leader Malcolm Smith.

The flip gives Republicans a 32-30 edge in the chamber and ensures that Smith is no longer the majority leader"


The urge to save humanity is always a false front for the urge to rule it. H. L. Mencken
