CAFTA: Enter the Washington Generals 

The math:

The House voted 217-215 in favor of the U.S.-Central American Free Trade Agreement, or CAFTA, early on Thursday morning, with 15 Democrats joining 202 Republicans in support.

So, faced with the chance to hand Bush a stinging defeat, 15 Democrats betrayed their party to hand Bush a victory.

Guys, you can't win the game if you keep handing the ball to your enemies!

Oh, wait, I forgot. The Washington Generals never to win, don't they? But boy, do they make Meadowlark Lemon look good. I read all the headlines about Bush being "on a roll"—et tu Froomkin—and "legislative victories" and all, and my B.S.S. syndrome spiked really bad.

So these guys want me to live with B.S.S. for the rest of my life?!

NOTE And now Nancy Pelosi is whining about ethics. Nancy, it was your job to win the vote!
