Ken Mehlman on the Defeatocrats
These people have no shame:


Dear formercia ,

In politics, there are turning points that can define a political party for decades to come. Yesterday's defeat of Senator Joe Lieberman in the Democrat primary in Connecticut is such a moment. Because he stood for a strong national defense and victory in Iraq, Joe Lieberman was successfully targeted for defeat.

For a political party to reject a respected Senator who just six years ago was its candidate for Vice President is virtually without precedent. It speaks volumes about the new Democrat Party: if you stand for a strong defense and victory in the War on Terror, you have no place in the party and you must be purged.

Watch the video and get the facts about what this means about the decline of the Democrat Party - from leadership that would "pay any price, bear any burden" to defend freedom to leaders who want to cut and run from the War on Terror, and surrender other tools needed to keep America safe.

The message from Connecticut is clear, and Ned Lamont isn't alone. He is joined by Rep. John Murtha, architect of the Democrats' position on Iraq and the man who wants to be the next House Majority Leader, who claims America is more dangerous than Iran and North Korea and says, "We've become the enemy." And by Howard Dean, who calls the idea of victory in Iraq "just plain wrong." Watch how the new Democrat Party always chooses weakness over strength, blaming America first.

With 90 days to go before the election, National Democrat leaders have made their choice in favor of defeatism, isolationism, and blaming America first. Where do you stand?

Sincerely,


Ken Mehlman
Chairman, Republican National Committee

2. It's "Democratic" not "Democrat"

And Lamont's victory was a victory for the Republic over the Empire.

9. I think that was very intentional
Not to let anyone think it was democratic.

3. He says "National Democrat leaders"
like he wants you to think "National Socialist."

There is no National Democrat Party, Mr. Mehlman. There is, however, a Democratic party and it's going to beat your fascist ass.

5. Mehlman
The last couple of times he has been on the tube he looked pretty nervous to me. It might be sinking into his thick skull that there is trouble in paradise for the rethugs.

7. So how is Chafee doing in the RI primary?
Polls show that most Republicans want his ass out.
How did moderate Republican Schwarz do in the MI primary? Oh yeah, he lost to a far right neo-con.
