If it weren't for Howard Dean, I'd now be Green.

If it weren't for the terrific work our Chair is doing to rebuild state and local parties, I would leave the Democratic Party. However, the Democratic Party will rise again.

Those worthless bastards in the Senate, Feingold & Leahy excepted (maybe Obama), however, can go straight to Hell. Senator Feingold has a censure motion against the Dictator, but Senate staffers are too goddamned worried about their bosses and saving their own skins to try and do anything to save the republic.

Here's a tidbit from the linked article:

Gotta love it. Feingold steps up and acts like a patriot and rather than supporting him his fellow Democrats are fuming:

One longtime Senate aide was particularly scathing.

“Feingold’s grandstanding screwed the pooch and played into Bill Frist’s hands,” the aide said. “Thank God Dems punted this down the field. Frist was going to force Democrats to vote on a resolution Feingold had kept a big secret and he would’ve split the caucus on an issue that needed time to get the whole caucus to support. Russ Feingold had only one persons’ interests in mind with his Sunday bombshell, and those were his own. He practically handed a victory to a Bush White House that desperately needs a win.”

WTF?? Is there something about living inside the Beltway that turns their minds to mush? Would someone dare to tell me how a censure motion HURTS the Democrats? Even if it lost, (which it would) it would show Americans (only 34% of whom support the Dictator right now) that we are STANDING UP. Now, we look like pussies. No one will vote for a bunch of pussies, and if we can't do better than this we are a PERMANENT MINORITY.

However, Feingold responds:

And Feingold’s fighting back:

I’m amazed at Democrats, cowering with this president’s numbers so low. The administration just has to raise the specter of the war and the Democrats run and hide. … Too many Democrats are going to do the same thing they did in 2000 and 2004. In the face of this, they’ll say we’d better just focus on domestic issues. … [Democrats shouldn’t] cower to the argument, that whatever you do, if you question the administration, you’re helping the terrorists.

I can hardly wait until the Chair finishes rebuilding the state & local parties and get these worthless pieces of shit out of Congress and replace them with REAL Democrats.

Never quit, never yield, never submit to tyranny: maybe you can be this century's John Milotn and write something like "Principle Lost," an epic adventure of those who once knew the Right, only to submit to the Tyrannical MisRule of those who only want us to be their whipping "Holler N*&&%r" boys and girls every two years. Get writin' thar boy...you's a poet yeeeeeeeet...

These unbelievable bastards couldn't win a popularity contest on death row. I have actually crossed the critical threshold into gonzo liberalism; I now hate Democrats more than I hate Republicans. You have to be a real gang of chumps to make the GOP look good.

Democratic consultants counsel cowardice.

As for these staffers, whom do you know from here who is one? Methinks they've become a "professional" caste, interested in a lifetime on the Hill way more than principles.

Finally glad to see some others getting as angry as I have been since before the 04 elections. I'm doubt if this trickles down to the local levels but on the national scene, I sometimes am tempted to cross-over into tin-foil-hat zone and say there is collusion between the Dems and the Reps.

It's pretty simple, If you don't fight, you can't win. I don't know how Democrats got so shell shocked, but I put a lot of the blame on Clinton and the DLC triangulators. This is also why I will not support Hillary. Fight! Goddamn it. Fight!
