"Divided Democrats"

So the Washington Post takes this Immigration bill which passed the Judiciary Committee with all Democrats voting AYE, and puts this picture up:

So I click through the caption and this is what I find.

Of all the Democrats that are supposedly divided on this issue. You know, cuz every time I turn on the radio they keep saying it is the Republicans that are divided. You know cuz the bill passed the Judiciary committe with a split vote among Republicans (all Democrats voted AYE) - Whoops I said that already didn't I.

I dug deep, I read the whole thing, I even tried to say Heh! Indeed! But I couldn't.

The entire piece, highlights all the Democrats that are divided. It does an excellent job of demonstrating how the entire swath of our Representative Minority in Washington is divided on immigration reform. It does so, elloquently, in one simple paragraph:
But the work of Borjas and other economists is becoming a wedge in the Democratic Party. Citing Borjas's work, Sen. Byron L. Dorgan (D-N.D.) denounced the Senate immigration bill yesterday, saying: "This is clearly a corporate strategy to keep wages low. It clearly will replace the jobs of American workers."

Absolutely, it is a wedge in the Democratic party. Because you know the entire Democratic party is boiled down to Sen. Byron L. Dorgan. He IS the Party! He is single handedly the MAN.

Ahem, Washington Post and Jonathan Weissman, it is the Republican party that is split on this issue. So how about writting about that.

Cuz there is actual imperical evidence that Republicans are split to that effect.
