  •  I love the "they" argument, not! (2+ / 0-)

    Painting the whole Democratic caucus as a single entity that wants to fail is not only devoid of reality but is painfully simplistic. The heart of the caucus is disunity. It is both a bug and a feature. It is the single biggest difference between us and Republicans.

    The R's are united behind disinformation, lies, teabaggers, and an alcoholic like thirst for power and money. United by idiocy and asshattery while the supposed adults with actual ideas and a desire to do something that is not awash in self interest couldn't organize a piss up in an Irish pub on St. Patty's Day.

    No, there is no "they". Rather, there are several bought-and-paid-for members, a flock of chicken littles, and and at least one extreme narcissist member of the caucus who have interests other than the people for whom they supposedly govern. Remember that it is these people who stand in the way of health care reform while the Republican friends provide the circus.

    My point is that the disabilities with which we try to move forward and the blame for our adversity and possible failure is none of our business. Failure will indeed be a serious problem for the elected misfits of the majority if they don't harden the fuck up. That's natural, Darwinian actually. Our focus should be how to keep moving ahead. So, I'd suggest we all stop wasting our emotional energy, develop a long fight mindset, and get behind the action described by the diarist. Or not. It's your choice to either whine about failure or try to do something about it.
