I know more then a few people who switched to Republican because the radical left takeover of the Democrat party.Its like the liberals were sitting around just waiting for the count to reach 1000...and I think many of them might have actually cheered, because it gave them the ability to politicize a new event for their benefit.
The left started to get really dirty four years ago, now their politics is just plain sickening. Again, democrats and liberals should be embarrassed at their party.
As for the 1,000 deaths in Iraq, the left seems to use anything they can to discredit Bush, nothing new there. It sickens me when someone takes the death of another person and uses it for political gains.
