33. Hear the DLC's Now-Desperate Mantra: "Stop Howard Dean At Any Cost!"
Edited on Thu Oct-30-03 02:08 PM by David Zephyr
The DLC is on the verge of irrelevancy with the ascendancy of Howard Dean---and they know it.

The corporate whores that run the DLC, Al From and Bruce Reed, are keenly aware that Deans campaign is now on the very verge of solidifying its lead against all other candidates and thereby wrapping up the entire question of who will be the 2004 Party Presidential Nominee.

Worse yet for the DLC, since Dean has been able to raise his tens of millions of dollars without corporate whoring and dependence on the DLC, and because both From and Reed have attacked Deans candidacy from the very beginning, they understand correctly that their days as peddlers of influence within the Democratic Party may soon be numbered. Hence, the loud death-rattle from the DLC, an organization more vile than the Republican Party itself.

More vile? Yes, more vile because it is insidious and encourages the likes of Zell Miller, Tom Daschle and Joe Lieberman who between the three of them have collectively supported the Patriot Act, undermined a womans right to choose, championed so-called faith based initiatives, protected gun manufacturers from lawsuits, cheer-leaded for the War in Iraq which was based on lies, and even endorsed George W. Bush for President in 2004. With friends like the DLC, who needs enemies like the GOP?

Beware when the DLC speaks of moving the Democratic Party to what they have determined to be the center for what they are truly after is their own self-perpetuation as influence peddlers in Washington through the means of directing monies from corporate crooks to Democratic lawmakers thereby compromising them and staining them. Far worse than the tattoos of gang members, these Democrats become marked as purchasable to polluters, religious fanatics and the crooked defense contractors.

Howard Dean has proven that he doesnt need them. He has taken the lead in all three of the first contests for the 2004 nomination being tied with Gephardt in Iowa, having a 20 point lead in New Hampshire and being tied with Edwards in South Carolina. Dean also is ahead in California polling and overtaking Lieberman in recent New York polls. So the long knives are being drawn. The DLC must stop Dean now at any cost or else soon they will be out of business and will have to close down their whore house of pimping Democrats to some of the despicable corporations on earth.

Here are the very words of the great corporate whore, Al From of the DLC himself: the great myth of the current cycle is the misguided notion that the hopes and dreams of activists represent the heart and soul of the Democratic Party." If you agree with that statement then support the DLC. If you disagree with that statement, join us for the coming battle for the very heart and soul of the Democratic Party.
