Yesterday the Democrats in Congress ran around in a frighteningly Chicken Little mode. What should they have done?
They should have withheld comment and met in a Congressional "huddle". They should have asked each other what problems they had and talked it out then and there- in private- before issuing any statements.
Hopefully, there were over 200 Representatives who did just that- which highlights the importance of being on-message in a Republican media environment. Barney Frank will have a hard time living this one down.
