Pull Up a Chair, Pop Up the Corn

This piece reminds us that the Democratic Leadership Council and the lefty netroots remain at loggerheads.

Beneficiaries of the fight? Republicans. Those most hurt? If you need a hint, just remember that Hillary Clinton tried to broker a detente against the two factions. After all, it's hard to win without a united party behind you -- and even harder if the two factions are expressing active antipathy for each other, and condemning any candidate who tries to reach out to both.

Since the McGrovern revolution of 1972, sordid self-interst groups have a strangle hold on the Demcoratic Party that the DLC will not be able to break.

These groups/movements include the abortion industry, Hollywood & the pronographers, homosexual lobby, American hating Leftists, teachers' unions, trial lawyers, environmental kooks, and last but not least, militant religious hating bigots.

And the list of groups controlling the Republican Party include: Halliburton, Exxon/Mobil, James Dobson, Karl Rove, Jim Crow-loving former Klansmen, and knuckle-draggers who think intimidation and blowing sh_t up are the answers to all the world's problems.

Don't forget the cheetoes covered brigade of right-wing, flag waving, saber rattlers. Responding to world events from their basement command centers. Their reptilian instincts being transmitted via keyboards into cyberspace.

right on Ayatollah.

Thanks Duke, I like James Dobson. Don't know what's to not like, oh, unless you are a militant religious hating bigot.

If you can start your day without caffeine,
If you can get along without pep pills,
If you can always be cheerful ignoring aches and pains,
If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,
If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it,
If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,
If you can forgive your friends for their lack of consideration,
If you can overlook it when those you love take it out on you when
through no fault of your own something goes wrong,
If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,
If you can ignore a friend's limited education and never correct him,
If you can resist treating a rich friend better than a poor friend,
If you can face the world without lies and deceit,
If you can conquer tension without medical help,
If you can relax without liquor,
If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,
If you can honestly say that deep in your heart
you have no predjudice against creed or color,religon, or politics,

Then my friend you're almost as your dog!
