Shut Up and March!

That the Democrat Party is a hodgepodge collection of sometime conflicting interest groups is as true today as it was when Will Rogers famously quipped, "I am not a member of any organized political party, I'm a Democrat."

But last week Cory Booker, Newark's popular-in-his-own-right Democrat mayor, publicly expressed disappointment with the direction of the Obama Campaign.  Very soon thereafter, he defensively and querulously retracted that expression of dissatisfaction, and even launched a somewhat angry counter-attack against the Romney Campaign for making use of his earlier statements.

The episode reminded me, again, that however disorganized the Democrats may be, their exercise of party discipline is, well, admirable.  The GOP could learn a thing or two from them.
