    Maybe this explains…

    …why the DNC hasn't settled the gay bias lawsuit filed by Donald Hitchock, fired from his job as gay outreach staffer:

    Democrats have a dramatic financial advantage in nearly every part of the political spectrum except at the national parties, where the Republican National Committee has cash to crow about.

    Forms filed with the Federal Election Commission overnight show the Democratic National Committee started March with just under $5 million in cash on hand, while the RNC had just over $25 million to spend. …

    Karen Finney, the DNC’s communications director, said the accounting entry tells only part of the story.

    “Given that many are saying the DNC is broke, I'm wondering what the standard is,” she said in an e-mail to reporters. “We raised $6M, have no debt and have $4.7M cash on hand. McCain has $3.7M cash on hand when you take his debt into account. ... Is McCain broke, too? Happy Friday.”

    Or maybe the unmerited cockiness of Karen Finney is symptomatic of the arrogance and score-settling that takes top priority at Howard Dean's Democratic National Committee.

      I'm going to go with score settling, according to the show i watched on chimps in the wild it is a standard trait of sapian politicians. Besides if they settled on the case they would drive a wedge between them and their gay voters, (the ones that don't drink the koolaid)
