Donkeys without backbones 

David Brooks has a good column in the Times yesterday on how the other Demcrats refuse to take on Howard Dean. Key graph:

While most Washington Democrats expect that Dean will get trounced in the fall, they are not trying to head off the catastrophe. Some fear a party feud more than a defeat. Some don't want to get on the bad side of the likely Democratic nominee. Some privately love what Dean says even as they fear he will lead to disaster. Most important, the Democratic establishment lacks the will to stand up for its beliefs.
