Ah, jeez, that damned woman will be the death of the Democratic Party [View all]

Know what she said tonight at a talk in New York City?

Q: Who does our government really work for?
A: Answer right now is a sad one. But we're going to change that.

What next? What next? Taxing the Job Creators at the same rate as the Little People? No sensible, common-sense cuts to Social Security? Making bankers actually follow the rules? Restoring cuts to food stamps and unemployment benefits? Handing Republicans their asses on a serving dish, flambeed and sauced with a delightful mango-balsamic reduction?

@#$%. She's ruining it. She's ruining everything.
