Question For The Vichy Democrats
How do you like being called nazi collaborators by the Online Left, by the way?
You know who you are. You are the people in the Democratic Party that feel that listening in on al-Qaeda operatives is a good idea, and that we can't cut and run from Iraq.
You don't see Joe Lieberman as a horrid traitor to his party, and you remember a party that once welcomed people like Scoop Jackson or Zell Miller.
Maybe you winced a bit watching the Alito hearings.
You'd better not complain, just suck it up. After all, these folks control the purse strings of your party now. They want to make the idea of a moderate Democratic party 'radioactive' by heaping scorn on the DLC.
Do you want them to take you down yet again this fall?
P.S. speaking of the Loony Left, if Cindy Sheehan has lost her First Amendment rights, why am I hearing about her losing them?

How do you like being called Communist Traitors by the Online Right, by the way?
You know who you are. You are the people in the Republican Party that feel that the FISA law was written for a reason and you do not feel the president is given dictatorial powers by the constitution.
You don't see Olympia Snowe as a horrid traitor to her party, and you remember a party that once welcomed people like James Jeffords or David Dreier.
Maybe you winced a bit when the President had the audacity to call the grandfathering of pollution restrictions to yet unbuilt new power/chemical plants, the Clean Air Initative.
You'd better not complain, just suck it up. After all, these folks control the purse strings of your party now. They want to make the idea of a moderate Republican party 'radioactive' by heaping scorn on anyone who dare question any Presidential directive, no matter how illegal it may be.
Is it worth selling your soul to the Devil to keep a majority in the House and Senate?

Umm.... Thomas? "Communist Traitors" is out of fashion, has been for years. Our intra-party squabble is with "RINOs" now. And it's not quite as vitriolic as you would like it to be, it just means "Republican in Name Only". I mean really... in order to be an incisive thrust, your idea has to have some merit. Not only are we not passing acid on our more squishy Republicans, but our Party is not controlled financially by the extreme anything. Oddly enough, the Republican Party is financed by tons of small donations made by a huge slice of America, not by a few well heeled financiers. Take a deep breath... it's only Thursday.
It must be a really tough time to be a Democrat.

Hey Thomas, here's a newsflash for you.
Its the Democratic Party that is being torn in two right now, not the Republican Party.
And by the way, its Republicans who have been winning elections lately.
The Democrats need far more introspection than the Republicans do, I would say, unless of course you guys actually like losing.

Scoreboarding is always fun.
And it will continue to be fun this November, as well.
Posted by: Hoodlumman at February 2, 2006 09:51 AM
Oh yes, the party is solid as a rock. How many plea deals, convictions, resignations, indictments, investigations are in progess? I hope you do think your house is in order.
Posted by: thomas at February 2, 2006 09:55 AM
Well ask Harry Reid about that.
He seems to be in the thick of it.
Posted by: Ken McCracken at February 2, 2006 09:58 AM
Let's just see who is delivered and indictment and who is not. The standard line that this is a Democrat scandal too is only going to last until then.
Posted by: thomas at February 2, 2006 10:46 AM
I think it is great! Any disgruntled democrates out there, come on over, again, in 06'. Funny thing is Dem's need a scandle to win not a message or plan.
Posted by: christian at February 2, 2006 11:07 AM
Yes. We all see how truly devastating the Plame scandal was for the administration.
And this NSA disaster. The humanity...
This Abramhoff thing will definitely be the final nail in the coffin.
We've been hearing stuff like this for six years.
Posted by: Hoodlumman at February 2, 2006 11:22 AM
I'd love for the Democrats to take up an opposing plan. That would be great. Two oxen going forward, one right and one left is still some forward movement.
One OX going forward and one going backward saying "That won't work, That won't work" while getting drug along, isn't helping anyone.
Why don't we start that contrasting debate on the fun subject of say... Social Security reform?
Whadda ya say?

You're right, Hood.

Here is how republicans won in 04. and I do admit, it is brilliant. Get a homophobic referendum in every swing state to make sure you can rally all of the good christians out there to vote. It was brilliant I admit.
Posted by: thomas at February 2, 2006 04:56 PM
Actually we have to credit the pro-homo unions for pushing that gay marriage thing to the fore-front in the news. Opportune timing.
