You Break It, You Buy It

The Online Insurgency: MoveOn has become a force to be reckoned with

They signed up 500,000 supporters with an Internet petition -- but Bill Clinton still got impeached. They organized 6,000 candlelight vigils worldwide -- but the U.S. still invaded Iraq. They raised $60 million from 500,000 donors to air countless ads and get out the vote in the battle-ground states -- but George Bush still whupped John Kerry. A gambler with a string of bets this bad might call it a night. But just keeps doubling down.



MoveOn to Democratic Party: 'We Own It'
Thu Dec 9, 6:37 PM ET
By SAM HANANEL, Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON - Liberal powerhouse MoveOn has a message for the "professional election losers" who run the Democratic Party: "We bought it, we own it, we're going to take it back."

A scathing e-mail from the head of MoveOn's political action committee to the group's supporters on Thursday targets outgoing Democratic National Committee (news - web sites) chairman Terry McAuliffe as a tool of corporate donors who alienated both traditional and progressive Democrats.

"For years, the party has been led by elite Washington insiders who are closer to corporate lobbyists than they are to the Democratic base," said the e-mail from MoveOn PAC's Eli Pariser. "But we can't afford four more years of leadership by a consulting class of professional election losers." (Story continues)

We have these little fuckers right where we want them, and no, I'm not ashamed to say it. The Washington elite has been replaced with the Marin, CA elite - sure to be a marketing faux pas for the Democratic Party. Nothing like a group of spoiled San Francisco liberals to spread the fostering tone of the DNC to red states.


All except one of my topics has been deleted from the Kos archive after asking why one post was censored. It sure looks like Democrats are enemies of differing opinions

So, enough with this ;) Of course, I'm good for trolling The Daily Kos for some shameless promotion of this blog. I predict some entertaining comments having to do with sucking O'reilly's dick. Though I'll warn in advance - the last person to suck Bill O'reilly's dick was a fledging bitter liberal with a knack for asking for cash the morning after.

Tomorrow we'll try and equate the internment of 150,000 Japanese civilians to 600 Arab militants. I'm giving you a head start because you'll need it...

He'll take you out.

While commenting a U.S. Senate race in 2006 between Rhode Islanders, Representative James Langevin and Senator Lincoln Chafee, Moulitsas Zúniga drops this gem:

Switch or die. I'd rather we didn't have to spend the money to take out Chafee if we could get him to switch. But if we must take him out, we will.

Goddamn, I love the fostering tone of the Democratic party.

Never in the history of mankind has a man who looks like this ever been noted as taking anything out.

New secretary of education Margaret Spellings divides America .
Ms. Spellings said that Senator Orrin G. Hatch had invited her to Utah and she expressed eagerness to visit there. "These are Republicans," she said. "These are our people."

My response:

In a statement by Terry McAuliffe, published on the DNC website, he said:

"And I am always aware that the praise for the remarkable progress our Party has made is really aimed at people like you - those who have stood by the Democratic Party through thick and thin."

This is the same exclusionary tone to me.

Let's see how this goes...

Highlights from Kos loyalists under this topic. As always, these responses were left uncensored.

Finally... the Eva Braun of the Bush Administration.

These are racists homophobes." she said. "These are our people."

Hey, isn't that a good definition of a Nazi?

It's considered impolite to compare people to Nazis--especially when they act like Nazis. So I don't ever say it.  I sure think it an awful lot though

Miss Spellings, FUCK YOU!!!

Censorship at the Daily Kos!!!

Another missile defense failure

Didn't Bush say something about cutting government programs that don't work ?
President Bush's planned ballistic missile shield suffered another setback on Monday when an interceptor missile again failed to launch during a test of the U.S. missile defense system.

The Pentagon's Missile Defense Agency said it could not complete the planned $85 million repeat of a failed December test after the interceptor missile failed to launch from its base in the Pacific Ocean.
To be clear -- they can't even get the darn missile to launch. $8.8 billion will be spent on the program in 2006.

My Response:

So are we happy Bush failed, or that a plausible method for defending the country has been foiled?

Just wanting to follow the party line.

A had known a liberal who cheered the seizing of Elian Gonzalez as "Bad Ass"

"How can you be on the side of this?"

"Damn data entry error. I meant this - how can you support this?"
