Arne BS: One DINO Down, 2,000 more to go... (28) RE: BS: One DINO Down, 2,000 more to go... 09 Aug 06


robomatic:

Ummm, exactly what elected office does Al Sharpton hold? Or what position does he have in the Democratic party?

As for "losing its [sic] gonads", I don't think you understand. Lieberman had the support of major Democratic figures, including the Clintons. The voters of Connecticut said, "no thank you, we can make up our own minds", and they did. Sounds to me like they had balls enough.

As for being a "proponent of anything", are you sure you think the Democratic party should be a "proponent" of Congressional intrusion into a very sad but personal family matter? Or a "proponent" of mass transit (gawd knows mass transit in CT sucks right now) to get rape victims to the next hospital hopefully willing to provide prophylactic birth control?

The Democratic party is the proponent of a lot of things: Better access to health care, higher minimum wage, sound energy policy, etc..... You just don't hear about it, because the RW Republicans won't even let their stuff come up for a vote. You want to fix Washington, vote more Democrats in, and you'll see what a competent party and gummint can do.

You want to know what the Republican party is a "proponent" of, it's more power to the banks over debtors, more tax breaks for the rich, more subsidies for oil companies awash with enough cash to refloat the Titanic, abolishing the best government program ever (Social Security), and endless wars to keep the fear level high and keep themselves in power. Not to mention Cunningham, DeLay, Ney, Frist, etc. Yes, indeed. Such a positive agenda.

Cheers,
