50. Just a rotten oxymoron organization
When you pare it down their only worth is in the dollars they seem to have to dole out. Anyone can come out with a compromising, "reasonable" approach to government. In actual words, practice and political effect they are the Black Death, rats covered with fleas covered with germs.

PNAC, corporate ties, political ties and my special favorite- what's in their personal; bank account and how did it get there? Teresa LaPore typifies in practice what the "New" democrat, is a coat not quite turned, a vision exalting in murk and myopia. An elan full of arthritic spite and old dragons squatting on their hoards.

They get their strength form getting top dem politicians featured in the organizational leadership and riding on any success from below, preferably weak sell-outs and ineffectual tightrope walkers. The actual problem is in the few very non-leader, non-pol grousers like marchall and From. A real DLC would look to itself and purge, remake and look forward.

An imitation centrist thinks that means acting like the radical RW minority and engage in laughable forgeries of their vices such as their latest favorite- projection of their own crimes and vice upon their enemies. But more than the RW which treads more softly on eliminating its sane reps, the DLC is the serpent seeking its own tail.

Despite warnings from Hillary about just such a tack her position and her words have had no effect whatsoever on the despicable antics within. This is a very poor forecast of her leadership capabilities in running for President. Obama rejected their inclusion of his name on their 'success" list, a deserved slap which should have had more effect.

When the DLC therefore decides to act like its name then someone might take them more seriously. The kind of attention they are pouting for now truly invites a purge, their last final rending of the party and the nation they have so badly served.

The names of the offenders is a very short list and mostly unelected camp followers. The respected elected names signing onto the overall sham is a damned shame.
