The most important election since………… 7 May 2008Posted by marisacat in 2006 Mid Terms, 2008 Election, Abortion Rights, DC Politics, Democrats, Inconvenient Voice of the Voter, Lie Down Fall Down Dems, SCOTUS, Sex / Reproductive Health, WAR!.
… since Jeeesuhs! [The First, that is!] The big push, the eternal push is on… “where are they going to go?” “Choice, SCOTUS, the most important election”…. they roll it out. If the party had a heart or a brain (or even an operating reflux system) they’d gag on their own words.
Somewhere or other I caught commentary that “aides to Obama admit, it will be harder to unite than normally”. Oh I am so entertained! And Chuck Todd slipped and said on Charlie Rose Monday night, that “even if he does not win the GE, Obama will have accomplished what the Democrats need”…
I dunno, finished second, ankles broken, shattered in fact?? Play it again, Sam.
Who knows. The Dems cannot win for losing. BTW, that is not an ass backwards endorsement of Hillary. But both she and McCain are rogues, Obama is controllable. IMO.
I must say, Black Agenda Report has push back. Top to bottom on the page.
I’ve loved the fiction these past weeks and months, rolling around in re-used cooking grease, that the leadership, the establishment, the national level, the DC Dems are so not racist. It is only the little people trapped in forgotten towns, with retrograde brains — and let’s not even start that there was no independent, published commentary from the so called left of the aisle on the ugly opinions of Wright on brains by race. The reason why is that all that matters is elections. Don’t fuck with the game, science and everything else be damned. Very simple…
AND that reminds me of the between clenched teeth admission from Daschle (a lobbyist, which the media has conveniently forgotten) that the reservation, a counted upon vote for him, went for Thune. He gave the cleaned up version publicly, that ‘of course they may vote for whom they wish’. I doubt that is what he said at home the night he lost the election. I never put time in to get details, but it seems the reservation went to Thune and cut a deal (quite aside that Daschle’s fortunes were tied to Janklow, the former R governor then single rep whose personal fortunes changed due to vehicular homicide and he fell from power). Of what shape or type and did he ever make good… I have no idea. But the several thousand voters went for him. It made a difference.
I say, wise up! The choice, the game is between a Roberts/Alito or the breakaway, secular radicalism of … a Justice Kennedy. Yes, that was sarcasm.
Oh! This is too good not to pull forward! (the big question, have denali and pinche tejano and paid asstroturfer donkeytale called peeder a racist yet? Cuz they have called everyone else a racist that is not toenail to tooth for ObamaRama):
Look, the righties have tarred her for 16 years precisely because they KNOW ALL TOO WELL that the 90’s were the BEST PERIOD for this country in THE LAST 50 YEARS. And they KNEW that anyone with their eyes on their wallet (their BASE) would gladly pay a bit more tax to go back to those years. they KNEW that Bill Clinton completely fixed and reversed the Bush deficit and here we have another one.
And so they KNOW that the idea of a fiscal conservative holding their noes and voting Hillary is a DISTINCT possibility and it may well spell the DEATH KNELL for the Republicans-as-Prednits meme they have tried to hammer home.
A PRGAMATIC liberal’s strategy would be to elect Hillary (DUH!) and then pressure her from the left in Congress. DUH!
but these fuckikng optimists think they can punch in some black nobody, completely BLIND to all history recent and otherwise of how people actually win office, and if that fantasy was to even come true, have that one Queen on the board with no supporting pieces on the hill and somehow make anything more of it other than another Carter disaster signle term presidency that leads us to another 12 years of Republican destruction.
And yes, AGAIN WITH FUCKING PROBLEMS WITH IRAN.
Disraeli’s warning is so fucking lost on these supposed interlectulals.
FUCK YOU FOR FUCKING UP THE WORLD WITH YOUR STUPID FUCKING OPTIMISM!

[does he seem a tad, oh I don’t know, UPSET?, LOL Mcat]
BTW, this is the thread from whence peeder’s bon mots are drawn …. and while i was there, trudging thru the reactionaries… there is this from Market Trustee:
*[new] Blue Dogs flexing muscle (0.00 / 0)
The Hill Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (Md.), the House Democrats’ point man in negotiations on an overhaul of intelligence surveillance law, is keeping his eye on conservative Blue Dog Democrats who might defect on the issue under Republican pressure.
[…]If Congress does not approve an overhaul of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) by Memorial Day, intelligence community officials will have to prepare dozens of individual surveillance warrants, a cumbersome alternative to the broader wiretapping authority granted by the Protect America Act, say congressional officials familiar with the issue.
Conservative and freshman Democrats are growing skittish. These lawmakers expect campaign opponents to accuse them of imperiling national security if Congress does not enact new intelligence surveillance legislation.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has stepped back from the FISA talks and let Hoyer spearhead House talks with the Senate and executive branch. Some Democrats say privately that she has not shown much urgency to reach agreement with the White House.
“A number of Blue Dogs are working on a compromise between the House and the Senate,” said Rep. Jane Harman (Calif.), a member of the Blue Dog Coalition and the former ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee. “I’m working with Hoyer and working with others. “Some other Blue Dogs are involved,” she added. “Blue Dogs are 47 votes; 47 votes will determine how this comes out.”
I wonder, what Barry’s position on FISA? I also wonder …still… who he will choose for a running mate. Pelosi sez, “the candidate, whoever he or she may be, should choose his or her own vice presidential candidate.”
I sure hope Barry picks a super-good VP.
His Veepessa will be chosen for him. It would not be any other way. They probably can choose their own rings and location for the reception… LOL — Mcat
