    Who runs the DNC these days, anyway?

    And God said, "Let there be light"; and with a Big Bang, there was light. And God said "Ow! Ow My eyes!" and in a flash God separated light from darkness. "Whew! Now that's better. Now where was I. Oh yea . . ."

    •  Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (5+ / 0-)

        She's not bad -- she's much better than her disastrous predecessor. But institutionally, the Democratic Party is allergic to building the big majorities that are there for the taking, because that would end their excuses for their inability to deliver even the simplest pro-99% reforms we desperately need.

         I get DNC e-mails all the time about guns and marriage equality (and those are important issues), but I never hear about restoring the New Deal, which is THE issue we need to be promoting pedal-to-the-metal.

      •  Thanks. I was too lazy to Google it :) (0+ / 0-)

        Maybe she could at least partner with Howard Dean? I mean, in 2006 you could have cleaned up on InTrade (may it rest in peace) by predicting a Dem takeover of Congress.

      •  That's silly talk. (0+ / 0-)

        They have no reason to work harder in states that don't organize and build for themselves.  What is it with Democrats demanding a Deus ex machina to manage every issue?  Someone Else needs to fix this I'm too busy to take action!  

        Battleground Texas is doing geat work.  We don't need a savior we'll save ourselves.

        I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.
