1. The Dems need to bring charges against the * administration
so that is where the press focuses their attention. On another note talking abpout charges, look for the the Ken Lays and his fellow crooks to be pleading guilty and being sentenced if the *'s numbers start to drop so he can pardon them before he leaves office.

3. There must be a groundswell of grass roots condemnation of wrong wing
propagandists and a demonization of the prevaricated sociopolitical mythologies of the wrong wing and their global corporatist overlords.

Publican leaders are evil and and their brownshirted drones are willfully ignorant anti-American traitors.

That's my meme and I'm sticking to it.

4. You're right
Yeah. You're absolutely right.

These righty assholes are gonna hate Kerry even more than they hate both Clintons combined. Here's why:

In January 2001, half the country hated The Governor of Texas(well, slightly more than half) and half totally loved him.

Then The Governor of Texas started "being President", which consisted of a bunch of mandateless speeches and allegations that the Gore campaigners removed all the "W"s from WH keyboards (which turned out to be a total fabrication)

Then, 9/11/01 rolled around (luckly for The Governor of Texas all the important shit happened before Condi's scheduled Missle Defense Speech). Suddenly EVERYONE LOVED BUSH! We dismissed the reports of secret Saudi Plane Flights and Chickening Out in Omaha and Rallied Behind Our Governor and Government. We enthusiastically supported the invasion of an Opressive Fundimentalist Dictatorship in Afganistan. After Major Combat Ended there, we still wanted to blow our collective military load elsewhere - Shrub told us that Saddam had WMD and was a direct threat to the US.

"Fuck that guy!" we (by 'we' I mean the collective voting public, not the smarties I find on DU) said, "we shoulda blown him away in '91!" So the Governor of Texas persuaded the intelligence agencies to report that Iraq was dangerous and when France, Germany and about 180 other nations said "no thanks", we said "well, go fuck yourselves! Poland, Spain, El Salvador and Japan are on our side, and we're gonna 'Shock and Awe' yo' asses!"

And that's exactly what we did. By now, most of us Progressives were like: "Uh, what the fuck? This stinks." Unfortunately, the media and the public in general (See Rasmussen, 4/7/04) hasn't seen the light until the beginning of this week.

Anyway, back to my point. The Governor's highest approval ratings were in the high 80's or low 90's. Since then, it's dropped to under half - AND THE RIGHTIES ARE PISSED!

They're pissed that the idiotic electorate could've turned on thier beloved Governor so quickly. As such, they'll come after Kerry so fiercely and with such hatred and vitriol, it'll be almost impossible for the poor man to get ANYTHING done unless the Dems win both the House and Senate. (The House is a pipe dream, I know, but at least a Senate win would keep those loonies in check. Assuming Jeffords can cancel out the gentleman from Georgia.)

So the moral of this story is: Even if you live in a solid Dem state like mine, Massachusetts - or someplace like California or Vermont or Rhode Island or whatever - give to the Kerry Campaign, the Senate and Representative election PACs and even your state and town Democratic officials. Because just electing a Dem Prez won't be enough. We have to turn the system upside down.

That's it. I apologize for the length of my rant.

5. This is true regardless
of who is elected. I hope to all dieties that Kerry can keep his penis within his marriage and has not engaged in any business or political dealings etc. that would make good fodder for weapons of mass distraction. You know they'll find a way; I hope he's clean enough to make it difficult for them.

6. agreed
That's the Dems can't go into hibernation again like we did during the Clinton years. The Republicans spent the Clinton years organizing and gathering force behind their political machine.

We need to stay alert and keep the momentum going, regardless of what happens this fall.
