  •  This is so damned insane (14+ / 0-)

    We are praying for a successful rebellious Democratic filibuster to stop its own Democratic Leaderships bad move.

    Ugh.

    Megan Meier, you deserved better than the cruelty that some so-called "adults" showed you. Rest In Peace.

    •  At some point the American people (5+ / 0-)

      are going to stop trusting anything that comes out of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid's mouth no matter what it is, beginning with promises to be the ones to be stopping the war, and if we get to that point I really worry about what the fuck we are going to do to keep bolstering the Democratic majority because I believe these people are going to turn around and say:

      "It's all the extremist far-leftwing blogs fault we are being alienated from the American public" before they blame themselves for the trainwreck.

      I cannot believe they are acting the way they are acting on so many important fights.

      What were they dreaming about doing all of those years in the minority when the GOP was stepping on their necks? Longing for the day when they could step on their own necks too?

      I really believe that 2008 is going to be the last election where "Vote for Me, Because the Republicans Suck" is going to be good enough for anybody who isn't a Republican to win on.

      Megan Meier, you deserved better than the cruelty that some so-called "adults" showed you. Rest In Peace.

        They act like they fear for their very lives. As if perhaps they might get a letter containing a fine white powder if they don't do what Bush wants. How did they ever get that idea I wonder?

        I'm already there, seriously.  I watch Harry lean on that podium and spin out the promises in that soft voice and modulated tones, and then I watch him make all the moves that lead to breaking those promises.  Nancy does not tend to make promisess, but she's full of sweeping edicts that somehow end up being compromised.  Enough is enough.  I'm done with them.
