For all who say GOPers are shooting themselves in the foot politically, we regretfully have to point to Dems doing the same thing. This should be a perfect time for Dems watching Republican Congressmen quickly distancing themselves from Jack Abramoff and Tom DeLay. Instead, Dems are doing their own stupid things.

Ray Nagin, Mayor of New Orleans, used to be the Mailbox's favorite mayor. Not anymore, since he pulled a Pat Robertson and said that God punished America with hurricanes for the war in Iraq. That, and a weird comment about New Orleans becoming chocolate. Then, there's Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, with her comments about the House being run like a plantation--dissenting voices in Congress are squelched. Um, Senator? The Mailbox would like to remind you that YOU are a Senator. Doesn't sound like your voice was squelched.

Meanwhile, the moderates in Congress are doing nothing to keep American policy on the track of common sense, allowing the President to keep up his spying, war-mongering, freedom-killing ways. Republicans like Sen. Rick Santorum get to spew their intolerant idea of theocracy, while Republicans who offer the mildest dissent, such as Sen. Arlen Specter, who suggested impeachment over the President's wiretapping, are hushed.

The Mailbox has long believed that a third party is necessary. One that promotes fiscal responsibility, personal freedom and is free of religious bias or judgment. However, a moderate set of Democrats or Republicans could accomplish the goal of breaking down our meme of extremist politics and steer the country back in the right direction.

The upcoming election in November is a perfect chance for moderates of both parties to separate themselves from the idiot extremists. Americans are not like Sens. Clinton or Santorum. Or, are they?
