Part of this comes from realizing that, outside of Shelby County and parts of Davidson County, no one has the faintest clue what the Democratic Party IS, or was SUPPOSED TO BE. Read that clip from Rep. Henry Fincher:
Why even bother with the Democratic Party when you have morons like that? There are people IN the party worth supporting who actually FIGHT for Democratic principles, like Cohen, Kernell, Beverly Marrero, and Jeannie Richardson. They, however, are a minority in a state party that is determined to just be barely to the left of fools and racists.
Let the monsoon come, let's protect our own and then worry about building a MOVEMENT. The Democratic Party is no longer it, folks. Obama blew the biggest chance we ever had by not being a strong enough leader to fight for people and not strong-arming Congressmen and Senators IN HIS OWN PARTY to stand up for people. He hired the Wall Street crowd to run the economy, the very same people who ran the economy into the ground.
And he wonders why his base is not turning out? When you are fighting Republicans, you have to FIGHT them. Kick them in the balls and then stomp on their heads when they are down, because that's all they understand. Instead, he wants to reach out to them. What happens when you shake hands with a werewolf?
Well, I've voted, and I'll show up at Cohen's event on Tuesday night to congratulate him on his victory. After that, though, I'm done, i'm not even sure what I'm going to do with this blog yet. Stay tuned.
