7. Lynne, m'dear, I got some interesting info this weekend.
I went to a party this weekend populated with a shitload of Northeast Dems. Very politically involved people, to a man or woman. Clued-in. Smart. Got access to people and information. You know; The Deep Skinny Crowd.

Seems we got ourselves a problem on the left of the Democratic Party. Seems that there is a lot of party leadership that wants us out. Out of the party. Out of politics. Gone. Seeya later. Bye-bye.

Oh, you would know the names of some of them. Schumer and Emanuel are two. Right now, the DLC *is* fighting tooth and nail for primacy, by any means, fair or foul. This fight has been engineered down to the local level and up to whatever level of the party you care to mention. They want to purge what they call "Those DFA Types".

Oh, did I mention that they are working hammer and tongs against Howard Dean? That they despise him for the people-oriented political changes he brought to the table, starting in 2004? Did I mention that most of the bad press that he gets is initially generated by Dems?

Frankly, I think that some, if not a lot of this negativity is generated from within our own ranks. It is being done purposefully and with malice aforethought. Bluntly: they don't want us around.

Once again: this is not conjecture or fantasy. This is from people who know.

And frankly, I smell astroturf.
