Rabid Donkeys On The Loose.


Ladies and gentleman, introducing to you, the leadership of the Democratic Party:

Exhibit 1: Howard "Temper Tantrum McGee" Dean-


Keeping tabs on each and every inflammatory and outrageous Howard Dean comment is nearly impossible, but here are some highlights--

Dean said of the removal of tyrant Saddam Hussein, that there's a problem with American policy...

...when we pick on dictators that are irrelevant to the United States.
The DNC Chair asserted that many Republicans...
...have never made an honest living in their lives.

After promising to "use Terri Schiavo" as a political issue, Dean kept his promise, noting of Republicans:

"...their government is just big enough to fit inside Terri Schiavo's bed in the nursing home."

At one point, Dean offered:

"I hate the Republicans and everything they stand for."

At another point, Dean claimed that Republicans are:

...a pretty monolithic party. They all believe the same. They all look the same. It’s pretty much a white Christian party.

Dean hates the Republicans and everything they stand for; meanwhile, he thinks the GOP is a party of white Christians.

It's telling.

And if you are a Democrat wondering why your party is in the tank, politically, look no further than Howard Dean.


Exhibit 2: Harry "Sticks and Stones" Reid-


Harry Reid is the Senate Minority Leader, arguably the most powerful Democrat in the country. If Democrats were to somehow take control of the Senate in 2006, Harry Reid would almost certainly become Majority Leader.

Reid has become rex obstructum (king of obstruction) of the elected voice of the American people, blocking necessary reforms without offering any alternative. Reid has also become a proliferator of personal insults, telling a high school civics class that President Bush is a "loser" and a "liar," and Bush will get nothing done that he wants. Reid also called Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan a "hack," Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas an "embarrassment," and said that African American woman Janice Rogers Brown wants to take America "back to Civil War days."

Obstruct, obstruct, obstruct.

If that isn't enough, insult, insult, insult.

And it's really no wonder. Reid's fate was determined when, shortly after the 2004 election, he hired a "war room" of seasoned party activists.


Exhibit 3: Charlie "We Need A Draft" Rangel-


Recall the Democrats' manufactured military draft hysteria during the 2004 election, aimed at energizing young voters against the Iraq war. It was Charlie Rangel who spearheaded this effort in Congress; he even introduced legislation on the matter.

More recently, Rangel compared the Iraq war to the Nazi holocaust:

"It's the biggest fraud ever committed on the people of this country," Rangel told WWRL Radio's Steve Malzberg and Karen Hunter. "This is just as bad as six million Jews being killed."

It speaks for itself. If the Democrats take control of the House, Charlie Rangel would be chairman of the Ways and Means Committee. Take a moment to contemplate what that would mean: Rangel, socialist tendencies and all, would become a pivotal player in determining America's economic policy.

It's enough to make any believer in America's free enterprise system shudder.


Exhibit 4: Hillary "Not From Arkansas" Clinton-


Hillary Clinton, by leaps and bounds, is the leading candidate to win the Democratic nomination for president in 2008. She's also consciously attempting to moderate, soften, and bi-partisanify her image.

But she's the woman who brought you Hillarycare, she's a classic 1960s leftist, and among the more ideologically liberal members of the Senate. She's also prone to inflammatory nonsense. Speaking at a fundraiser recently, Senator Clinton asserted:

"There has never been an administration, I don't believe in our history, more intent upon consolidating and abusing power to further their own agenda....

It's very hard to stop people who have no shame about what they're doing.... It is very hard to stop people who have never been acquainted with the truth....

Mrs. Clinton described Republican leaders as messianic in their beliefs, willing to manipulate facts and even "destroy" the Senate to gain political advantage over the Democratic minority. She also labeled the House of Representatives as "a dictatorship of the Republican leadership," where individual members are all but required to vote in lock-step with the majority's agenda.

Calling for America to pursue a "progressive" agenda, Mrs. Clinton also asserted that the media are biased... in favor of the White House.


Exhibit 5: Nancy "GOP Majority Insurance" Pelosi-


If Democrats were to miraculously take control of the U.S. House of Representatives in 2006 (not gonna happen), say hello to Speaker Pelosi. For that reason, and because she is so out of touch with mainstream political thought, Nancy Pelosi is majority insurance for the GOP.

The latest: Nancy Pelosi now claims that raiding the Social Security trust fund HELPS maintain solvency... until 2052.


Clearly, Pelosi is just saying wildly ridiculous nonsense for the sake of being contrarian. If Bush and/or Republicans are for something, Pelosi is automatically against it.

Indeed, when queried on her plan for saving Social Security, Pelosi offered this eye-opening comment:

"...why should we put a plan in? We will go — our plan is to stop him from — stop him. He must be stopped."

Americans are pragmatists at heart. They want something tangible out of Congress. They want solutions, not political games.


Exhibit 6: Richard "Whip Crackah" Durbin-


You may have known little or nothing about Dick Durbin prior to his recent outburst. But he's part of the leadership of the Democratic Party. Durbin is the number two Democrat in the Senate, Harry Reid's hatchet man.

Mark Steyn puts Durbin in his place:

Last Tuesday, Senator Durbin, Democrat of Illinois, quoted a report of U.S. "atrocities" at Guantanamo and then added:

"If I read this to you and did not tell you that it was an FBI agent describing what Americans had done to prisoners in their control, you would most certainly believe this must have been done by Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or some mad regime -- Pol Pot or others -- that had no concern for human beings."


The senator from Illinois' comparisons are as tired as they're grotesque. They add nothing useful to the debate. But around the planet, folks naturally figure that, if only 100 people out of nearly 300 million get to be senators, the position must be a big deal. Hence, headlines in the Arab world like "U.S. Senator Stands By Nazi Remark." That's al-Jazeera, where the senator from al-Inois is now a big hero -- for slandering his own country, for confirming the lurid propaganda of his country's enemies. Yes, folks, American soldiers are Nazis and American prison camps are gulags: don't take our word for it, Senator Bigshot says so.

Durbin really ought to be ashamed of himself. Durbin's non-apology was additionally shameful.


The lesson here is clear

The radical left owns the Democratic Party. MoveOn.org and DailyKos and the others bought the DNC, and they expect results.

Results they have gotten.

Congrats to the frothing fringe for their Pyrrhic victory.

In 2006, if you are a Democrat running for Congress in a state or Congressional district Bush won in 2000 and 2004, these are your running mates, whether you like it or not.

We need a picture of Nancy Pelosi in "cyclops" mode. Often on TV I see her with her bangs hanging down over one eye, with that "Gateway to the West" eyebrow over the visible eye. Very scary, especially now that everything but the eyebrow has gotten the word that we don't exist in zero-gravity.

Hey, it's Saturday and I give myself permission to make inane comments.

Posted by: Quid at June 25, 2005 07:15 PM

Those five rabid Dems. are just the beginning of the Rabid Democratic Party!... What about Robert Byrd! He is certainly one of the more Rabid Democrats in the political line up. . . Let's not forget Jocelyn Elders and her bout with rabies and foaming at the mouth. I really miss her!... And, we haven't heard much about Sandy Berger and his shenanigans! I think with the death of Pope John Paul II and Terri Schiavo's execution it took the lime light off of his rabid act! Of course I could go on, but I am running out of room!...Thanks! I enjoyed that.

Posted by: Zsa Zsa at June 25, 2005 08:33 PM

Hillary's quote is rather interesting about people aquainted with the truth!... Was she refering to her husband? I guess she would know a little something about how hard it is to "stop people" who are not aquainted with telling the truth. After all she is married to a liar. . .

Posted by: Zsa Zsa at June 25, 2005 08:48 PM

Where's Ted Kennedy. The fat simpleton with the glib toungue and dedicated(almost all young female) staff says something stupid every day of the year.

Posted by: pat at June 25, 2005 11:32 PM

How about Senator Patti Murray. Her comment to school children that Osama Bin Ladden builds day care centers is an all-time classic.

Posted by: Dave at June 26, 2005 12:22 AM

Add to the Hillary file the fact that she did not hear Durbin's remarks, but called on Rove to appologize for his.

I further agree we need to add Kennedy to the list.

Posted by: Richard at June 26, 2005 12:28 AM

Yes, Teddy should be on the list, he is one of
the worst, loud, slimy dem of them all.
It never seems to trouble him to get up there and
tell his lies.
John Kerry could be added as well, as with the
memo he was going to rush in and impeach the
president with, what a loser.
They are trying to get enough evidence to
impeach the president and shut down the war and
if the real people of America don't speak out
the people who believe their lies will start
asking for one.

Posted by: cjg at June 26, 2005 01:38 AM

There are just alot of Rabid Donkeys running around...! John Kerry is dumb and rabid. So you know what that makes him? ... A RABID DUMB ASS! If you'll pardon the expression?

Posted by: Zsa Zsa at June 26, 2005 07:42 AM

The list goes on and on. What about Upchuck Schumer, who admitted that someone like Janice Rogers Brown would stop his socialist revolution??? The Dems today are so far gone from the Dems of Kennedy--John Kennedy. John Kennedy actually believed in the greatness of this country and advocated tax cuts!!!! He would be a conservative today. The faster the democratic party falls apart, the better for the U.S.

Posted by: Brick at June 26, 2005 07:42 AM

Is it just me? OR... can Charlie Rangle ALMOST get away with saying stuff like that because he sounds a bit like Elmer Fudd? Now remember! I said ALMOST.

Posted by: Zsa Zsa at June 26, 2005 08:24 AM

Did anyone say Al Sharpton?

Posted by: Zsa Zsa at June 26, 2005 08:37 AM

Did you ever notice how the Democrats do their character assassinations and then proclaim to the American people that there needs to be more comity in Washington? Actually it’s an effective trick because, particularly this time of year, the American people are not paying attention and the Dems seem to be the good guys calling for greater cooperation.

Posted by: Joe McC at June 26, 2005 09:00 AM

It's great to see these America-hating Pinkos on display! Now let's start adding to the Band-of-Commies, like T. Chappaquidick Kennedy, Schumer, Bidden, Jean-Francois Kerree, Levin and the rest of bro's. They all "Luuuve America", but of course, not this America! Great, rabid patriots!

Posted by: I. Caganek at June 26, 2005 09:28 AM

There's always the famous Quote, from Pelosi, the WAR is over close GITMO

Posted by: not so blue in OR at June 26, 2005 09:56 AM

Only in America! ... Ted Kennedy should just now be getting out of prison. Yet, he is a Senior Senator! Those Democrats!...Aren't they special? That Teddy he can get away with murder!... He is so lovable. Funny thing how he is a Senator when most people wouldn't even been allowed to vote after his little escapade at Chappaquidick! That just shows how special he is!

Posted by: Zsa Zsa at June 26, 2005 10:01 AM

I planned to keep it focused on the leadership only, but there is obviously a lot of room to add Byrd, Kennedy, Murray, and then some.

Looks like I may have to work on a part two at some point in the future. Thanks for all your suggestions.

Posted by: Will Franklin at June 26, 2005 10:30 AM

James Carville*** Now there is a BIG rabid donkey! What an ass! If you ask me he is one of the BIGGER ASSES, I have ever seen!! Not to mention "Rabid Asses"***

Great, this could even become a permanent feature on this blog. Keep adding them as they deserve the honor.

Posted by: I. Caganek at June 26, 2005 12:04 PM

Don't forget Jim McDermott.

About President Bush, he said, "I think the president would mislead the American people."

On the other hand, as for that nice Mr Hussein, "I think you have to take the Iraqis on their face value."

Also, "In the United States, we have a tradition, we have a Constitution that says if there's a bad person there, we give them due process and inspections is the due process in this example."

Posted by: flenser at June 26, 2005 12:22 PM

Let's not forget Henry Waxman!...He never recieved his rabies shot either!*** He has been running rabid for quite some time now.

Posted by: Zsa Zsa at June 26, 2005 12:26 PM

These retro-Dems are an empty mirror. Once their mists clear, there is nothing to reflect. Dawn and dusk promise each other what neither can achieve. And for the rest of us: Call politics dream or nightmare, nothing is changed. The oldest story in the world: Where words degenerate, government and all else fails.

Posted by: John Blake at June 26, 2005 02:47 PM

Good use of ad hominem both the origianl story and the comments. Name calling, now that's classy.

Posted by: Anthony Duval at June 26, 2005 03:39 PM

Brilliant! I love the psychodelics! Just perfect. Groovy!

Posted by: Jim Hoft at June 26, 2005 03:42 PM

Anthony Duval,

What a thoroughly ironic statement to make, considering the original story is mostly about how the leadership of the Democratic Party, devoid of a positive agenda or real ideas, has resorted to ad hominem attacks.

Posted by: Will Franklin at June 26, 2005 04:06 PM

I would caption this collection as: If your village Idiot is missing, check here.

Posted by: btenney at June 26, 2005 06:30 PM

Yes Will, it is ironic. You wrote a long article about how the Democratic Party is guilty of negativity and over the top insults. Only to have the comments section be prime examples of over the top insults and ad-hominem attacks on the Democratic Party.

Posted by: Anthony Duval at June 26, 2005 07:48 PM

Don't look at the comments as "over the top insults"
These are just the facts! Which ironically just appears to be insulting!...Sometimes the truth hurts!*** Robert Burns the Scottish poet had a great outlook on this type of irony...! It went something like this.
Oh for the gift the giftees give us to see ourselves as others see us!

Posted by: Zsa Zsa at June 26, 2005 08:38 PM

To capture all the lefty lunatics and their commentary on one site would require more bandwidth than is likely available. Why, just listing the poisonous statements from Maxine Waters, Cynthia McKinney, and Ted Kennedy alone would likely cause a global Internet slowdown.

Posted by: Darrell at June 27, 2005 07:41 AM

".... the comments section be prime examples of over the top insults and ad-hominem attacks on the Democratic Party."

The comments here are NEITHER insults no attacks on Democrat party, just statements of fact.
The facts are that Democrats are weak and surrenderists, have no ideas, but have big, foul mouths. These Demos are very dangerous in any position of power (which they do not have presently, thanks God).

Posted by: I. Caganek at June 27, 2005 09:13 AM

I keep reviewing that " eye opening comment" from Nancy Pelosi... It kind of reminds me of a amnesia type part from a Sci-Fi movie! We must stop him. Or a hypnotic kind of thing... Hmmmm...

Posted by: Zsa Zsa at June 27, 2005 10:23 AM

So quoting (D)'s in context is ad hominem?

Regarding the Democratic Party, MoveOn PAC director and Soros operative Eli Pariser boasted, "Now it’s our party. We bought it, we own it."

As the "BigLie" includes the tactical element of blaming your target for what you inflict upon them... how 'useful' that such excess quoted here is defended by such consistent methodology.

Posted by: DANEgerus at June 27, 2005 02:39 PM

Darrell... I couldn't agree with you more about Maxine Waters!...I heard her on the radio the other day. I couldn't believe my ears! The negative remarks against our troops were very disheartening. It is very disturbing that there are members of Congress and Leaders of our Country who seem so anti American!...

Posted by: Zsa Zsa at June 27, 2005 04:38 PM

The Democratic brain trust - now there's a contradiction in terms.

- Nancy Pelosi couldn't match wits w/ a dirt

- John Kerry has all the charm and appeal of a
used colostomy bag

- Ted Kennedy is a doddering old drunk

With losers like these 3 plus Harry Reid, Joe "Hair Extensions" Biden and Chris "I Fart, Therefore I Am" Dodd, no wonder the Democrats keep losing election after election.

Posted by: Ted Kennedy Stole My Lunch Box at June 27, 2005 04:59 PM

I could be wrong, BUT... I think Joe Biden has plugs!...

Posted by: Zsa Zsa at June 27, 2005 07:10 PM

I second that - Bidden has plugs on top of his head! No wonder he's been acting so irrational!

Posted by: I. Caganek at June 27, 2005 07:46 PM

Hmmm...You would think those plugs would have sprouted a bit more by now!... He might need to go to a better hair plugger and get that fixed!*****You know, come to think of it extentions might be the answer! Then he could kind of comb it over...I love how those comb overs fly in the wind*******
