In response to Rep. Parker Griffith's switch to the GOP, there is sour grapes, but also some humor, from the Left on Twitter:
fritzling Really??? Why couldn't you have pulled a Lieberman and just turned Bi?!?...
And from Public Policy Polling, a Democratic firm, a sobering note to liberals about the true nature of Democratic discontent:
On our last poll 27% of Democrats expressed disapproval of the party's Congressional leadership. Out of that group 49% said they were opposed to the health care bill with only 44% in support, and 85% of those opposed said it was because the bill created too much government involvement in health care.
[W]hile 38% of all Democrats are liberals and 12% are conservatives, among those unhappy with Congress 24% are conservatives and just 21% are liberals. Parker Griffith is more representative of the Democrats unhappy with their party than a liberal blogger mad about the loss of the public option.
