New Democratic Coalition.........the Sick Dogs
These would be Democrats who have no humanity about them, who need to be taken out back, shot, and put out of their misery while those of us who ARE human cry about the terminal disease that some Dems have contracted.

I just spent 1:30 of my life watching the CNN Democratic Debate. In that time, I saw about 3 demonstrations of people proving that they are actual humans and not aliens or robots with laser eyes.

1) Clark and Kucinich demonstrating concern for soldiers.
2) Edwards dealing with the disabled woman.
3) Sharpton being Sharpton the whole time, especially when dealing with the Native American guy.


The rest of the candidates looked out at the audience and saw...votes? cow flesh? an anomaly in the Matrix, perhaps?

One woman asked about the economy in her native Spain. The candidates should have answered her question. The least they could do would be to laugh in her face. Instead, they went into their prescription plan preprogramming.

Another asked about the role of unions in the next administration, and did not get addressed as the person that he was. Instead, a candidate, who we'll call Mieberlan to protect his identity, tried to lecture him on the great idea of "middle class" and how Super it was.

Probably the best of these gems was when the small businesswoman asked about her taxes and Gephardt went off on his health care plan. Or when Dean was asked about health care for seniors and talked about his cigarette tax. (which he then referred to as "the precious." Ok, I made that up.)

So the question remains: can any of these candidates be human more than once every 90 minutes? Or shall we shoot them all and start over again?

1. BTW this is more about interpersonal relations
than actual topics discussed. All candidates out-humaned Republicans in that regard.

2. Question: was the thing about "the precious" a Lord of the Rings joke?
just curious.

Answer to your question: more than a few of them should be shot. We could start with that guy Mieberlan.

3. Why yes, it was.
Now that I think about it, Mieberlan kind of looks like that guy.

4. Yes, the Q&A was pretty bad. Not answering the questions they were asked
but going off on whatever point they wanted to get across.

I think the format isn't good in these debates. And, alot's at stake right now for all of them.

This debate was not one of the better ones. Although seeing more of them is helpful, just to figure out how many are robots (or have robot eyes) and who still has life..

My biggest disappointment is that those who supported the Iraq Invasion, still don't get it! The audience does but they avoid the topic at every turn. And Mieberlan sounded like Bush in his support. Iraq is falling apart and it's ignored.

5. You do know why Dean had to mention that ?
Kerry campaign sent a fax, Judy cut Dean off, and Kerry pounced.
It was totally off the wall. Dean explained it well, then sat down and said no more. Kerry was dead wrong to take part in that.

6. none of them talked about shooting you
The only violent imagery, ever, by any of the candidates is Sharpton talking about slapping a donkey.

how much humanity is there in using that kind of imagery? It makes me puke.
