Rep. Cao Admits He's a Closet Case

On Tuesday, in front of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus, Rep. Joseph Cao, the first Vietnamese-American elected to Congress, admitted to being a closet case. A "closet Democrat" that is. His exact words were:

"Don't tell the Republicans, but I might be a closet Democrat," said Cao to a round of laughter.

Now, this sounds like a prime example of Rep. Cao, who comes from a heavily Democratic district, panda-ring -- what you'd call pandering to our people -- but methinks there is another explanation.

Translation: "The GOP ship is sinking. We've got the head of the RNC kow-towing to that guy Rush Limbaugh and my re-election in 2010 is a hair's breath away. Abort, Abort!

Meowww, Mrs. Cao!
