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 [strike]not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public[/strike] 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

Let's get one thing straight about Greenwald

Look people, nobody hates Libertarian traitor Glenn Greenwald more than I do.


But as terrible as Greenwald is, at least in 2002, when any reasonable person knew in their gut that war with Iraq was necessary, a trivial-yet-profitable undertaking, Greenwald stood with reasonable Americans: he was for the thing. He's changed his mind since (which in his case is a sign of weakness while the same action is a sign of strength in better people), but for a brief moment in time, Greenwald stood shoulder-to-shoulder with the best and brightest stars of our Democratic Party.

Now let us turn to another terribly terrible traitor, Ralph Nader. A man who, need I remind you, has money in his bank account. Unlike Greenwald, Nader has NEVER been reasonable, not even once.


In fact, a movie about him is called An Unreasonable Man! A man so cut off from reason that he was always against the Iraq War, even when it was a good idea.

And so we must conclude that while Greenwald is a most worthy contender, it is Nader that has earned the title of absolute most terrible person on Earth.

QED, baby.

Oh yeah? How Do *SnowWald* Worshipers Sleep at Night?!

Look people, I can't believe the ignorant crap I have to read on a supposedly "Democratic" site.

How do we sleep at night?

How do WE sleep at night?

How do YOU sleep, SnowWaldistas!!!

Sure, Operation Spy-On-Everyone violates the plain meaning of the Fourth Amendment of our Constitution, but the Constitution is not a suicide pact! Operation Spy-On-Everyone saved lives!

As Starship Cmdr. Keith Alexander, the former head of the NSA testified to Congress, the vital secret programs that SnowWald leaked to al Qaeda had stopped more than 50 terror plots cold!

More than 50!

Of course, that number was later found to actually be 0, not "more than 50", but that's NOT THE POINT. I realize that most of you in DU-land are members of the Lumpenproletariat and are thus as slow-witted as a sloth that's gotten into the ether stash, so I'll spell it out:

Just by the bad guys KNOWING that we had a secret program like this, we scared them from doing evil acts of Terra!

Now that they know we have a program, the game's over. We lose our children, our way of life, our precious bodily fluids, our humorous cat pictures -- all of it. Gone in an instant, thanks to Comrade SnowWald's treason.

I hope you Fourth-Amendment-Huggers NEVER SLEEP AGAIN, tossing and turning in [strike]tortured[/strike] enhanced-interrogation agony, just as Snowden's Hawaiian neighbors did when he didn't smile at them. We'll watch our videos of your nighttime suffering, we'll hear your sleepy voices on your phone calls, and we'll laugh.

“The best way to stop a bad guy with a gun is with a good gal* without a gun”

*I used "gal" as the counterpart to "guy".

UPDATE: Edited the bit about jurors as it was misleading.

"Obama and the End of Greatness"

Decided to read the New Yorker tonight. Always love the writing, although the writers have gotten pretty stiff, could use some time at Burning Man. Or maybe it's the editors. Editors can turn wonderful prose into dreck, too.

In any case, Obama and the End of Greatness sounded pretty important, so I read it. The short story is that a former Clinton speechwriter tells us that Obama can do little more than show up and shrug, and that's OK. That we can't expect greatness anymore.

What have we become that we acquiesce to acquiescence? This stuff drives me $&@#ing nuts.

We can do much, much better, but only if we demand it. Indeed, we need a revolution. Hopefully one that's calm and without bloodshed, but the difference between what we expect and what we need is a grand canyon, and crossing it will be a bear.
