The Whip. Whipped.

It's official - J.C. Hammer ... um, Jim Clyburn .. gets hammered, dropping a bid for another term as the Democratic House Whip, allowing Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Maryland) a free ride to be the second-in-command of the House Democrats as they go into exile, led by the same person who led them into this year's massacre: Nancy Pelosi:

A race between Hoyer, D-Md., and Clyburn, South Carolina's 6th District representative, for the post of party whip took shape in the days following the election and quickly took on racial overtones. Clyburn is the most powerful African-American in Congress, and he drew a formal endorsement from the Congressional Black Caucus. But he failed to generate enough additional support to overcome Hoyer’s strength among liberals and conservatives alike, and it appeared his only options were to run against Hoyer and lose or else concede the obvious and step aside.
