  •  Decades of Seat-At-The Sell-Out-Table 'leaders' (10+ / 0-)

    lead to this bullshit. When we workign stiffs haven't been directly sold out by the lying sell out scum of the DLC Blue Dog Turd Way,

    we've been "lead" by diaper pissing cowards unable to make the Joe Liebermans etc etc pay, politically, for their perfidy.

    Confession: from '88 to Howard Dean I supported these lying yuppie f'k sell outs with my votes, and, despite my misgivings, I voted FOR Kerry and 0-sell-0ut & patty murray & cantwell & gregroire & gary locke & ... ugh... I'm to blame for sell out leaders as much as any other peeee-on voter.

    Since 2010 I've actually felt a little better about all the sell outs - just like during the era of crap that Raygun-Cheney pulled - I did NOT vote for 'em! 2010 and 2012 were just about all write ins, when the office was above dog catcher.

    until we working stiffs STOP supporting sell outs with all kinds of fancy degrees, fancy job titles, fancy credentials and fancy paychecks, until we STOP chasing the LOTE LOTE LOTE ball thrown by the powers that be -

    we're gonna keep getting sold out.

    •  Well, I seem to recall the 'working stiffs' (0+ / 0-)

      couldn't vote for Regan fast enough. Now, I loath DLC Third-Way politics, but after the 12 years of shellacking inflicted on the Democratic party by white labor I understand how they thought it was the only way to win an election.

        to screw the 80% of us NOT on their side, and the other 19% of rich pig boot lickers, ass kissers and doormats.

        HOWEVER, we 80% can't hire effective messaging to defeat the lackeys of the 1% cuz ...

        cuz ... we keep hiring the same sell out, yuppie Terry McAulliffee Bob Schrum fucks ... or ... we'll scare the middle and lose!!

        yawn. really - do the math.

        years, without serious challenge, until "Third-Way" dipshits threw it all away.

        If you ignore the reason "white labor" is part of the coalition, you can't be surprised when they leave.

        There was a clear choice between making room for Rockefeller Republicans, or keeping working stiffs.  These people have NEVER been able to function inside the same party in American history.

        The choice was made.
