it's a turd, it's so lame...

it doesn't really matter that xavier bocerra "will likely be progressives' main ally on the Super Committee." this isn't a committee of quakers. the supers are going to work on a majority vote. the six republicans are going to vote in lock-step with whatever crazy plan grover norquist writes for them. the main question is whether all six democrats stand together and oppose the plan, forcing the GOPers to either come up with something better or face cuts to their beloved military industrial complex, or whether one of them will give in to the republicans and sell out the democratic constituency.

considering that harry reid already named max baucus to the committee, i think that battle is already lost.
