DLC incompetence

2006-08-10 16:33:35.764117+00 by Dan Lyke 3 comments

Regarding Joe "rape victims can walk to another hospital and the Constitution is for wimps" Leiberman's well deserved kicking to the curb: My Left Wing: The DLC Couldn't Beat my Dead Great-Grandmother, about yet another failure of the Democratic "Leadership" Council:

America underestimates just how far we've been sold down the river by these incompetent DLC clowns. Let me repeat this again:

A three-time Senator, former vice-presidential candidate, visible party statesman, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Harry Reid, Barbara Boxer, the other popular CT senator Dodd, most of Organized Labor, the women's groups and the environmental groups, most of traditional Democratic party support, the slick ad money, the top DLC consultants, lobbyist support, armies of paid GOTV staff, and a 3 to 1 budget gap couldn't beat a freaking County Selectman and his unpaid volunteers.

(Via Medley)

And, Barbara Boxer who happens to be my senator and to whom I've previously written a nasty letter about supporting a dweeb like Lieberman, Joe's now threatening to leave the party, split the vote, and cost the Democrats a seat. Happy now?

I'm not a Democrat. Distinctly not a Democrat. But the Republicans have largely gone off the deep end on personal liberties, on economics, on pretty much everything, and the enemy of my enemy is my friend. However Democrats at the national level seem to be so freakin' incompetent, and so stuck on funneling campaign funds to their friends in ad agencies at a scale that's only bested by Cheney's ability to funnel dollars to Halliburton, that they don't really make much of an ally.

Dan, the irony of it all is that now that Lieberman doesn't have the support of the Democrats he may stand a chance of winning the Senate seat.

Maybe, although Connecticut can be Republican enough that most likely he'll just split the Democrate vote. Who knows, though, maybe it'll be the other way.

Is there some reason people in the east pay attention to Lieberman? As far as I can tell, here in Seattle he's just "that weird crypto-Republican the Democrats saddled Gore with for no apparent reason".
