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."
Lovely.


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.
