To all the right-wing anti-Purgies

We have a problem.

For 20 years, y'all have exchanged favors to Wall Street for cash to you, to your families, and to fabulous war chests used to destroy any politicians that hold traditional Democratic values.

That's worked out great for your bank accounts and those of your relatives, and America's wealthy have never done better. But it ain't all rosy: for typical Americans, by-and-large, it's been a catastrophe. Utter disaster. Record numbers of homeless children, that sort of thing. (Fortunately for you, the police state you've created keeps the unsightly urchins from view as you walk from your limo to your fabulous dinner parties, but they're out there, cold and hungry.)

Now things have finally gotten so bad that even the base that you keep mooning and screaming "who the #%^* else ya gonna vote for, schmucks?" at has finally said "not you!".

You suck, and you're destroying our country.

So perhaps you can understand why people want you to go away. If we FDR Democrats (i.e., those of us with "#%^*ing retarded" ideas) do finally get our act together and reconstitute the party of working families, you're certainly welcome to vote for us. But do stay the hell away from the levers of government: you people have wrought, and/or been complicit in, enough destruction to last a century.

Go the #%^* away.

"Who the #%^+ else ya gonna vote for, chumps?"

They keep mooning the electorate and screaming "who the #%^* else ya gonna vote for, suckers?"


Obviously, their solution is to moon the electorate a few more times per day. Perhaps waggle their junk at us on special bipartisan occasions.


How these nitwits remember to breathe each day, let alone that they make bajillions on Wall Street in their respites between government "service", is beyond me.

Dear Lord: yes, it's kinda funny. We get it. You are, indeed, the greatest prankster of all. Now stop.

Sincerely yours,

Banged-Up Manny

We need a new Democratic Party, that much is clear

The current one sucks so terribly that we got our asses flambéed and handed back to us by a confederation obviously composed of lunatics, idiots, and rogues.

Lincoln fired his losing generals until he got some that got the job done. When will we rank-and-file Democrats do the same?

This is war.

This could actually be good. Stop laughing and hear me out...

Remember back in 2006 when Democrats were somehow able to overcome Howard Dean's leadership of the DNC to take over both houses of Congress?

When that happened, Democrats could have stomped Republicans like bugs, but instead they adopted a new spirit of amity and comity, never lording their position over the opposition. Do we have any reason to believe that Republicans will be any less gracious come January? That a new spirit of cooperation and putting Americans ahead of partisanship won't take root in Congress?

Anyone? No?

OK, well then maybe we can focus on president Obama's able and willing veto pen? He can stop the GOP cold if they try to do bad things. Right?


Well, gotta go, need to change my underwear and get very, very, very drunk.

Goddamned Liberals.

Just think of how much worse tonight would have been if

Howard Dean had been running the DNC. We might have won many more races, but there'd doubtless have been partisanship, competent campaigning, and unhelpful vocalizations played over and over by the news media.


I believe we all owe a debt of gratitude to one Debbie Wasserman Schultz (and her photogenic doggies) for keeping this from being a bad night. This campaign season was clean, fair, and I dare say it's begun to move the domestic animal Overton Window from cats back to dogs.

Scott Brown's next state?

NY's been known to vote carpetbaggers into the Senate, but an admitted Republican might have a tough time there.

Did any other "Liberals" vote today?

After much reflection I changed my mind and voted for Democrats for the first time in... jeez... three months or so.

Any other "Liberals" have a change of heart and vote?

Here Teddy, let me fix that for you:

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public just stopping the ratfuckers."

OK, OK. The DNC has made its point.

Hey, Manny --

Let's keep this short and simple. General Clapper tells us that you like cute doggies.

Fair enough, Manny.

So here's the deal: Manny, if you donate $200 today, this cute doggie lives until at least Tuesday, and you'll be on the list of our best supporters we send to the FEC.

Come Tuesday night, should things not go well for us Democrats... well, let's just hope things go well, capisce Manny?

Thanks for this, Manny
