Washington

Can the Democratic Party become fully competitive? Is American liberalism dead, the 2006 election a last twitch of life before rigor mortis sets in? The answer to both questions is yes. (More on this next week.)

For the Democratic Party to revive, major tenets of American liberalism, economic and sociocultural, will have to be discarded. The party can join Studebaker and the Glass Bottle Blowers union, it can trudge along as No. 2, or it can undergo a painful transformation — without guarantee of success.

To stay in the fight, Democratic leaders will have to acknowledge political realities affirmed by the electorate in 1994 and 2006. Many Democratic constituencies — organized labor, minority advocacy organizations, reproductive- and sexual-rights proponents — are reliving battles of a decade or more ago, not the more subtle disputes of today. Public sector unions, for example, at a time of wide distrust of government, are consistently pressing to enlarge the state. For these players, adapting to a re-emergent center will be costly.

Democrats won on Nov. 7 by carrying a 59 percent majority of independent, moderate voters angered by the Iraq war and Republican corruption. These voters demonstrated 12 years ago that they can easily turn against Democrats.

An example of the reality that Democrats refused to face the last time they had a shot at consolidating power materialized during the fight to pass Clinton’s 1994 Omnibus Crime Bill, legislation that sought to burnish the party’s justice credentials by increasing the number of felonies subject to the death penalty. Instead, amendments added to win support from the left — most visibly, $40 million for midnight basketball leagues — caught fire on conservative talk radio, spread to the establishment media, and soon became a liability.

When Democrats bend to the will of liberal interest groups, even in pursuit of laudable goals, the damage to the party’s credibility can be devastating. President Clinton succumbed to such pressure, and Democrats in the House and Senate paid the price. Democrats now have a chance to regain public trust, but even a minor miscalculation can push the party off the tightrope. Its House majority is tenuous: 17 of the new Democrats represent districts that voted for Bush in 2004 by at least 54 percent, according to the political scientist Gary Jacobson.

The public will desert Democrats placing a disputed cultural or spending agenda above the broader public interest. This is especially true at a time of extreme uncertainty: lethal struggle in the Mideast, nuclear proliferation, mounting skepticism toward free trade, and a rising non-marital birthrate — now at 37 percent — that concerns moderate voters.

The potential for an incendiary controversy to engulf the Democratic left has sharply escalated with Web access to each committee and floor vote under new Congressional transparency rules, and the development of aggressively partisan outlets in the blogosphere. An army of conservative media is determined to recreate the political climate so advantageous to the G.O.P. in 1994. At the same time, very liberal senior House Democrats now have vastly enhanced power to add inflammatory provisions to bills moving through their committees (think Rangel and the draft).

Nancy Pelosi and her closest advisers in the House are more likely to support such radioactive amendments than to serve as guard dogs protecting a slender Democratic majority. The first test of Pelosi’s ability to distinguish between broad-based and special interests will be when she decides whether to appoint Alcee Hastings, the once-impeached federal judge, to head the House Intelligence Committee.

Only two members of the House leadership are intuitively attuned to such problems: Rahm Emanuel, chairman of the Democratic caucus, and Steny Hoyer, the majority leader. But Emanuel has limited influence, and relations between Pelosi and Hoyer are distant at best.

Still, the vigilance of Hoyer and Emanuel will be crucial to a party whose renewal could easily be stillborn. Congressional leaders are not all-powerful, but they can set the stage for a successful presidential candidate, or lay waste to the center-left, dooming the nominee.

The Democratic Party can secure its 2006 gains, but to do so will require abandoning a decades-long willingness to indulge pressure groups on the left that no longer command broad popular allegiance.

What slop.  Top to bottom…  IF only the Democrats believed in something… things would get exciting in DC…

UPDATE, Saturday 3:20 pm…

I scammed this from Cursor.org… so it may not be news to people, but i think it is great, IF the Dems had a full skeleton under those skin sacks:

Dave Lindorff: Congress Should Immediately Terminate the 2001 AUMF

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Dave Lindorff, co-author of “The Case for Impeachment

Forget Nancy Pelosi’s “100 Hours” agenda for the new Democratic Congress.

The first thing Democrats need to do when they walk into the Senate and House chambers this January is to vote out a joint resolution repealing the September 18, 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF), which was the authorization for the U.S. attack Al Qaeda forces and the Taliban government of Afghanistan.

That AUMF has been used, wholly inappropriately and wantonly, by President Bush as the justification for his assault on the US Constitution, for his willful violation of laws domestic and international, and for his unconstitutional usurpation of legislative and judicial power.

The president has claimed that the AUMF, far from simply being an authorization to go to war against Afghanistan and against the Al Qaeda organization there, was an open-ended authorization for him to initiate an unending “War on Terror,” which he has subsequently claimed has no boundaries, and will be fought around the globe and within the U.S. [snip]

And here is an interesting snippet, which if I knew I had forgotten (so much has happened in 5 years, hard to count the crimes and sell outs)… Cute how the Dems always know the score… ;) but let it go on, in agreement:

[F]urthermore, as Barbara Olshanski and I explain in our book “The Case for Impeachment,” the AUMF never gave Bush any authority at all to conduct war inside the U.S.

(In fact, Tom Daschle, who as a Democratic Senator from South Dakota was the Senate Majority Leader at the time the AUMF was passed, specifically denied a last-minute request from the White House to have the words “in the United States” inserted into the wording of the resolution authorization.)  [snip]

*************************************************************************

UPDATE, 11:30 PM Saturday…

From Joe Galloway, taking a look at the options:

Go long. Under this scenario, the United States would add 20,000, perhaps as many as 50,000 more ground troops to the 143,000 now in Iraq, giving our commanders a more credible force of more than 160,000 to pacify Baghdad without stripping the other troubled parts of that country of their security. This short-term option was used last year to jump-start the Maliki government in Iraq. This beefed-up force would decline gradually while the U.S. maintained more than 100,000 troops in Iraq for an additional five to seven years. [...]

If I were a betting man, I’d put my money on Option Two, go long.

The president has so boxed himself in with his public statements about ”cutting and running” that Option Three simply isn’t available to him, however appealing it might be as we approach our fifth year of war in Iraq.

Nor is Option One any more palatable, with its attendant surge in the cost of the war, already more than $2 billion a week and nearing a total of $400 billion in just those costs we can see. Then there’s the near impossibility of attracting scores of thousands more young Americans to enlist in the Army or Marines when recruiters are already hard-pressed to find enough warm bodies to maintain the current authorized levels of around 500,000 for the Army.

Then, at the close:

If the week wasn’t bizarre enough already, who should arise like an unstaked vampire from his tomb but Henry the K himself. It was recently revealed that Kissinger the elder had been secretly advising Bush the younger on his Iraq strategy, telling him that withdrawal would pitch the Middle East into unimagined turmoil. This week, he was on the talk shows advising that there can be no U.S. military victory in Iraq, and that any idea of installing Jeffersonian democracy there is hopeless.

 Perhaps Kissinger can use his diplomatic skills to arrange for a decent interval for an American withdrawal, a declaration of victory, and that fleet of aircraft carriers and helicopters to pull the last Americans off the roof of the U.S. Embassy in the Green Zone in Baghdad.

 To cap the week, Vice President Dick Cheney arose like Lazarus to declare that the recent congressional elections and his party’s loss of Congress to the Democrats has changed nothing: The Decider is still deciding, Cheney is still scheming, and American troops are still dying in battle every day in Iraq.

    It gets curiouser and curiouser.

translation: oh lordy, is that bitch going to work w/ actual representatives of the people to take back some of that juicy corporate welfare? I sure hope all that money shelled out to the corps’ trojan horses pays off:

Despite this focus on gaining access to authority, Democratic congressional leaders have expressed disdain for their predecessors’ fealty to “special interests.” That is why they are planning an elaborate assault on lobbyists during their first week in session. Through changes in laws and in House rules, Democrats hope to ban lobbyist-provided gifts and travel to lawmakers and to create an Office of Public Integrity to oversee the disclosures that lobbyists must make about clients and fees. Yet the biggest change in downtown Washington since the midterm elections Nov. 7 has been the rush of companies and trade associations to retain Democrats. “There are more opportunities for Democrats than there have been in many years,” said Anthony T. Podesta, a prominent Democratic lobbyist.

Democratic lobbyists prospected for new clients on the very night last week that House Democrats elected their leaders on an anti-lobbyist platform. Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (Md.) and Majority Whip James E. Clyburn (S.C.) were feted on the 10th and ninth floors, respectively, at 101 Constitution Ave. NW, a premier lobbying venue at the foot of Capitol Hill. Some of the city’s top firms are in that building, including the lobbying arm of Goldman Sachs, the American Council of Life Insurers, Clark Consulting Federal Policy Group and Van Scoyoc Associates.

Hoyer’s political action committee financed his reception in a room routinely used for lobbying and other events, but Clyburn’s was paid for by Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP, a South Carolina-based law firm that lobbies extensively in Washington on health care and other issues and has offices in that building.

Dozens of lobbyists attended both functions and shuttled from one party to the other. “The elevators were jammed,” said Gwen Mellor, a Democrat at the lobbying firm PodestaMattoon, who collected business cards that evening.

Companies’ eagerness to hire Democrats began before the elections. Podesta said he had already signed up Wal-Mart and British Petroleum in anticipation of a Democratic victory. Now he is even busier fielding offers from other potential clients. “I’ve got a fairly full schedule of marketing meetings that are real,” he said. “I did some right after the election, and I have four or five set up for next week.”

Drug companies are particularly hungry for Democratic help, including the industry’s trade association. “We woke up the day after the election to a new world,” said Ken Johnson, spokesman for the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America. “We’re going to have tough days ahead of us.”

A post-election e-mail to executives at the drug company GlaxoSmithKline details just how tough. “We now have fewer allies in the Senate,” says the internal memo, obtained by The Washington Post. “Thus, there is greater risk over the next two years that bad amendments will be offered to pending legislation.” The company’s primary concerns are bills that would allow more imported drugs and would force price competition for drugs bought under Medicare.

The defeat of Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) “creates a big hole we will need to fill,” the e-mail says. Sen.-elect Jon Tester (D-Mont.) “is expected to be a problem,” it says, and the elevation to the Senate of Rep. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) “will strengthen his ability to challenge us.”

The e-mail also mentions that Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) “has worked closely” with the company and that the firm’s PAC had supported six Democratic senators who faced reelection. “These relationships should help us moderate proposals offered by Senate Democrats,” the e-mail says. Explaining the memo, GlaxoSmithKline spokeswoman Patricia Seif said: “It’s important that we’re knowledgeable about the positions of the members of the next Congress.”

Hey, the “Pulitzer-Moore Chair” is stealing Markos’s material. Why didn’t Edsall call his column “The Curse of the Single Interest Groups” and be done with it?

3. marisacat - 25 November 2006

The nattering on over nancy is absolutely out of hand. Hastert never got a wink of criticism and nothing compared to this over all that happened on his “watch”. Tho I doubt he watched much other than his food plate…

4. cactus ed - 25 November 2006

The worst has been the references to her Armani outfits. They never talked about how Denny had to shop at the “Big and Tall Guys” outlet.

The more I think about it, the more the “Pulitzer-Moore Chair” sounds like a moron. One of the surprises (well, maybe not a surprise to your readers) this election was widespread support for increasing the minimum wage. But according to the “Pulitzer-Moore Chair,” that’s a organized labor battle from decades ago, not one of the “subtle disputes” that is a lesson of 2006. I also like the hidden assumption that a “spending agenda” is “above the broader public interest.” What a maroon.

5. marisacat - 25 November 2006

… and iirc Edsall wrote for the WaPo for a couple of decades. I just saw him in the immediate aftermath of the election with Schaller (Gadfly and TAPPED) – they both have a book… and Schaller got confirmation for his assumption that you can totally by pass the South… LOL there will never be another minority voter registration effort south of the Mason Dixon line. WHAT A MISTAKE.

LOL… Like NM is a sure thing. Wilson pulled it out against Madrid and Richardson is STILL hunting for the votes he promised for ’04.

Or, Nevada anyone?

Oh yeah… well one thing that helped is that some Republican governors had embraced min wage raises… Huckabee for one. And got it thru under their tenure.

If ONLY Democrats remembered how to lead in the dance…

6. Proud Anglo - 25 November 2006

Spanish– yet ANOTHER reason to hate the Beaners

Patriotic Americans can rattle off any number of reasons to demonstrate how our Spic– oh sorry, “Latino” infestation is the worst plague our country’s had since AIDS. Here’s another one– Beaners have truly the worst, stupidest, lamest, laziest, most incompetent, ugliest, most useless f***ed-up language ever made. Spanish is a cultural abbomination that only the Spics could love.

Let’s see, in English we have the great writers, and playwrights that everybody in the world wants to imitate, we have Milton, Tolkien, Shakespeare, Wordsworth, Austen, the Brontes, Blake, Kipling, Whitman, Poe, Lovecraft, Mellville, Frost, Eliot, Emerson, even modern great writers like King and Grisham. We’ve got the greatest singers like the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Elvis Presley, Aerosmith, U-2, Guns ‘n’ Roses, Streisand, Sinatra, Martin and Lewis, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey– you name it, we Anglos dominate it. We’ve got the greatest TV shows and movies. In short, in all branches of literature, music, TV and movies, English just rules over the pathetic gobbledygook known as “Spanish,” ’nuff said.

And in Spanish, what do the Beaners have to match up to English? They’ve got, oh, uh, lemme see here– oh yeah, that’s right, Julio Iglesias. Since they have such a brilliant-o great-o singer like Julio, this clearly goes to show the great artistic heights of Spanish and Spic culture. NOT.

Oh, yeah, Spanish can also take great pride in its ghetto-pimp, no-talent, ugly, sorry-ass hip-hop dumbass wannabes like Daddy Yankee and Don Ommar or talentless little sluts like Shakira or Paulina Rubia who stink up the airwaves emenating from an otherwise decent radio. Wow, we Anglos are all so impressed by your talent. NOT.

We Anglos– or maybe gringos, you like that one better?– we hate your sorry fat asses here in more ways than anyone can count, it’s hard to choose, anymore. Spanish is nothing more than noise pollution, and we Americans look forward to the wonderful day when we wouldn’t again have to hear any loser mumbling “por favor” or “gracias” here in this Anglo country anymore, that would be almost as great a day as the United States winning WWII since we’d finally get to rid our country of this infestation. And don’t even start up with the BS about how “the border crossed us,” oh boo-f***ing hoo, this is Anglo turf now– you Beaners not only lost the Mexican War, you got your SORRY ASSES HANDED to you by the Anglos, no doubt while you were busy goofing around and babbling in your monkey tongue and screwing your senoritas while the Anglos were out there marching on Mexico City. You suck– just deal with it.

I can think of nothing better than to dedicate myslef to eradicating this verbal diarrhea known as Spanish from the US, as should any patriotic Gringo. The sooner we can rid ourselves of Hispanic stench in all its forms, the better off we’ll all be. Have a nice day and don’t choke on your tacos, Beaners.

Signed,

Anglo and Proud of It, the Gringo who haunts your dreams at night

7. marisacat - 25 November 2006

aww honey. You should know: before I approved your comment I kicked your tires. Brand new blogspot one post, today AND I was the first to visit your profile…

I think you’re masking.

Myself I like ranchera music – not cleaned up for the Anglo market either… And Astrid Hadad.

LOL So you know, in case you wanna repeat your spewing sludge, you are on moderation.

8. wu ming - 25 November 2006

wow, that’s the first time i’ve heard mariah carey held up as proof of the superiority of the english language.

9. marisacat - 25 November 2006

yeah, agree… a new low.

LOL you’d think he’d call himself “USA! Born”
rather than the spanglish “Anglo” or “Gringo”.

10. bayprairie - 25 November 2006

a boring stupid white fuck ignant dipshit says

Spanish– yet ANOTHER reason to hate the Beaners

Patriotic Americans can rattle off any…

yeah, in fact, you poor white trash anglo-aggie dumbass, that’s probably all you know how to do.

rattle off.

i suggest you learn a fresh new trick

and fuck off.

11. bayprairie - 25 November 2006

oh by the way

that brown dude you hate?

he’s fucking your sister.

12. TustonDAZ - 26 November 2006

…y ella le gusta mucho!

Que pinche perujo es el “anglo”, que idiota; no sabe que las ciudades mas viejas en “America” (estaban fundido por gente que hablaban espanol)

And I hate to think of what all the fucking racists gringos would do without catchup (mexico invented the tomato) for the deep fried “American cuisine”…

BTW I just saw my first Mexican election protest banner in Sonora…just south of Nogales at a truckstop on Mexico 15…a big red white and green affair that said “viva la corrupcion, viva las traisoneros” etc…

Its a nice bookend to the tri-color bill board just north of Magdalena that simply says, “Colosio: 12 anos de impunidad”

13. wu ming - 26 November 2006

i saw a “bush es un pendejo” sticker on a pickup around town last weekend.

is ranchera the accordion-heavy mexican polka music that plays on AM all through the central valley? i love that stuff.

14. wu ming - 26 November 2006

oh, in other news, iraq’s just gotten a little bit worse. hotel rwanda, v. 2.0.

15. marisacat - 26 November 2006

yeah that is ranchera …. SOngs at night…after the work… I love them when the voices are harsh and raw..
;)

On Iraq, there is also this from WaPo

Over the past two days, warnings have spread through messages delivered to the cellphones of Sunni Muslims. In Arabic, they read:

“Very big armed groups are being formed in Sadr City, backed up by the Interior Ministry, to kill great numbers of the citizens of Baghdad once the curfew is lifted. Spread the word among our people.”

It signed off: “A reliable source.”

Yet amid the fear gripping this city of 7 million, there were also signs of Iraq’s famous cohesiveness, even as the sectarian divide widened. In some mixed neighborhoods, Shiites provided shelter to Sunnis targeted by Shiite militiamen, even though they risked being branded as collaborators. Others took care of Sunni children or bought groceries for Sunni neighbors who feared walking to the local market.

Outside their houses, the revenge attacks raged on. Gunmen wearing Iraqi army uniforms rounded up 21 men, including a 12-year-old boy, from two Shiite homes in the village of Balad Ruz, 45 miles northeast of Baghdad in Diyala province. On Saturday morning, their bodies were found, all handcuffed, blindfolded and shot to death, said Bahaa al-Sodani, a provincial police official. The attacks were in apparent retaliation for assaults by Shiite militiamen on Sunni mosques in Baghdad and Baqubah the previous day.

wu ming.. thanks for the SJ Mercury… a lot of information…

17. Madman in the Marketplace - 26 November 2006

Over at Hullabaloo, poputonian quotes from a new history that the original inhabitants of Mexico and the rest of the Americas were VERY civilized before the Spainards came in and killed them with germs and steel:

The book 1491 lists the following inside the cover:

-In 1491 there were probably more people living in the Americas than in Europe.

-Certain cities — such as Tenochtitlan, the Aztec capital — were far greater in population than any contemporary European city. Furthermore, Tenochtitlan, unlike any capital in Europe at that time, had running water, beautiful botanical gardens, and immaculately clean streets.

-The earliest cities in the Western Hemisphere were thriving before the Egyptians built the great pyramids.

-Pre-Columbian Indians in Mexico developed corn by a breeding process so sophisticated that the journal Science recently described it as “man’s first, and perhaps the greatest, feat of genetic engineering.”

-Amazonian Indians learned how to farm the rain forest without destroying it — a process scientists are studying today in the hope of regaining this lost knowledge.

-Native Americans transformed their land so completely that Europeans arrived in a hemisphere already massively “landscaped” by human beings.

Corn, who knew? Idiots like the one above make the rest of us “anglos” look bad, though sadly I have to say that he represents a large minority (if not a slight majority) of the thinking of a group of people coasting on the fruits of the plunder stolen by their ancestors.

18. TustonDAZ - 26 November 2006

a brief note on ranchera, la musica del norte (mi barrio!)…

Narco-corridos, the mexican elder cousin of gangsta rap (roots back to the revolucion and Pancho Villa) is a sub-genre from within ranchera and if folks out there are interested, I don’t know of a better window into the millieu (el mundo) than Elijah Wald’s Narcocorrido

Narcocorrido is a series of visits with corridistas, from the most popular narco writers to rural singers documenting current events in their communities. It was researched over roughly a year, traveling all over Mexico and the southwestern US, largely by hitchhiking. I went up into the drug trafficking regions, searched out the foremost composers in their homes, and listened to every cassette the truck drivers threw on their tape decks. {…}

“Through the stories of the corrido-crafters themselves, Wald uncovers a world desperate for heroes. At once tragic and hopeful, the result of his journey holds a mirror up to life on both sides of the border.”
–Louie Perez, of Los Lobos

“Narcocorrido is more than an exposé of a musical genre and a contemporary problem, it is a journey into the complex nuances of Mexican social and cultural history. Wald’s book is a most significant contribution to the bibliography on travel literature by foreign observers to Mexico since colonial times. It will be of interest to a wide range of specialists in diverse fields, as well as to the casual reader who will enjoy the pleasure of a rich narrative of adventure and detective work.”
–Guillermo E. Hernández, Ph.D., Director of the UCLA-Chicano Studies Research Center

I’ve read it front to back, and just learned that since I purchased it that a companon CD with the representive songs is now available…maybe PK will stuff my stocking with it this year…

19. raincat100 - 26 November 2006

O, TustonDAZ, maybe you can help me…

I would love to track down the group “Barrio Cubano de Ronald Rubinel” in order to buy some more music… I love “El Carretero” on the Putumayo Latin Groove disc, but I cannot find anything else by them. Rubinel does pop up on the afromix discography.

20. marisacat - 26 November 2006

LOL Here is Harper’s on Ike Skelton who replaces Duncan Hunter as chair. Constant bonanza for the MIC.. little changes, but Ike prefers certain weapons systems. B-2 rather than the B-1.

I think iirc that Skelton is as well a very rightie social conservative. Pity the Pro Choice groups don’t have armaments to hack, Skelton would be lining up to assist..

21. Madman in the Marketplace - 26 November 2006

Stern’s Music is a good site for “world” music.

22. Madman in the Marketplace - 26 November 2006

ooops, meant to add “raincat” … there are three discs by him at that link.

23. Madman in the Marketplace - 26 November 2006

also, if there is a store near you that carries imports, Sterns is a BIG distributor to stores in the US, and if you hit a Virgin or some local Caribbean store that carries Zouk, you might have some luck and avoid the UK shipping costs.

24. TustonDAZ - 26 November 2006

Hey raincat,

Sorry, I got nuthin’. The stuff they sell in Nogles or South Tucson is Mexican and even the cumbias (which are found in cuba and the entire mundo latino) are Mexican in flavor.

I find myself drawn more to the African derived carribean groves (gotta have that clave 1-2, uh, 123, 1-2, uh, 123 etc.) than the northern Mexican stuff which has strong germanic influences (violins, accordians, and a polka beat) but I just love how ranchera captures the flavor of el norte.

Hopefully, Madman’s links were helpful…

25. raincat100 - 26 November 2006

Madman and Tuston — thanks! I think I will explore those links. Maybe I should focus on tracking down Rubinel rather than that band. Maybe it was a temporary thing.

26. ms_xeno - 26 November 2006

Heh heh. God hates stoopid White racists. You can tell because while I was reading PA’s post and hoping against hope that it was a joke, iTunes pulled up Ozomatli’s “Lo Que Dice.” One of the best songs ever written, if you ask me.

…I blame myself plus you
For the things we do
It’s no wonder we stay under
And don’t bust through.
Because we trek this battlefield, life
With words to slay the doubters, quitters, cowards.
It’s only common sense
The heart is more revealing
But a stab to someone’s back
Is much more appealing…

Couldn’t live w/o Los Lobos’ singing “Hearts of Stone” or “La Pistola y el Corazon,” either. Or Calexico, or…

27. wu ming - 27 November 2006

speaking of narco-corrido, it appears another one bit the dust.

should have taken a hint from chalino sánchez and packed heat, i guess.
