Who's your choice for Mayor in 2015?

Tomorrow is the day a new TDP Chair is elected

And I am in agreement with my state ExecCom members that it should be Chip Forrester. While, yes, both he and Charles Robert Bone have been involved at the highest levels of recent campaigns, and I do like both of them, having had the opportunity to speak with them, I believe Forrester has a better idea for direction of the party.

Bone is also supported by the very people who have led this party to the brink of collapse; Bredesen, Lincoln Davis, the big-money donors who love the Republican-lite approach to campaigning that has seen us win only two state-wide elections since 1990 (and since those were Bredesen, do they really count?). They have dropped veiled threats that they will pull out of the party if Forrester is elected.

To which I can only say....

GOOD. Don't let the doorknob hit you on the ass as you're leaving, OK? What have you done for this party other than pull it away from its populist roots and back people like The Honorable Phil Governor, who has made Don Sundquist look like Hugo Chavez in comparison? NADA. ZILCH.

So, if you're a real Democrat, you'll stay and take a role in shaping its' future. If not, you'll take a hike and you won't be missed.

So, TDP ExecCom members, if you are undecided, please vote for Chip, he'll take us in the right direction, CRB won't, good guy that he is.

Thanks for your time!

There it is there.
For every Depublican that departs, we'll find two younger, more progressive candidates to replace them.
Obama is right about civil service, service is a worthy cause. He motivates many and we'll reap the harvest.

Every last one of those DLC, Blue Dogshit NeoCon-appeasing vermin can go somewhere and rot for all I care. I'll never vote for any of them no matter who they run against.
