The Jurassic Senate of the GOPosaurs and DINOsaurs is a fucking disgrace. Don't blame Obama, blame these craven, weak kneed traitors to their nation.

    I only discount Ted Kennedy and Al Franken for obvious reasons, as well as Bernie Sanders, who votes more like I would than any other Senator. If you think your senator should get a pass here give me a good reason why,.

    The rest of the Senate can go fuck itself.

    That's right. The Senate has sold out to the banks, the insurance companies, the special interests, anybody with a dollar gets their time.

     40 GOPosauars who say "No No!" , 55 DINOsaurs who say "Not Now!", Arlen Specter trying to remember which side he is on today and whatever the hell Joe Lieberman is skittering across the wall.

    The Conservative status quo sets the tone in Washington and in the MSM. The GOP sets the obstruction agenda, plain and simple, and I hope you are with me when I say I have had enough..

    I say traitors because the Senators (both right, left and especially center) I speak of owe favors to special interests who are pulling the string behind every compromise, third way, special trigger and tea party we have seen of late.

     No more compromise with racist, elitist, secessionist assholes who hope we fail.


    Every Conservative idea has failed, from Friedmanite economics to Just Say NO! To everything. When we compromise with the GOP all we get back is FAIL and stoopid. And do we get votes back for it? Feh!

    How do we call getting a half assed watered down agenda Progress?

    I hope Obama sends any BS fake reform bills back to the Legislature. I hope Obama uses the BIG Stick.

    At this point, I'd say the biggest threat to progress are not the GOPosaurs, it is the sell out DINOsaurs in the majority.

    It is like Harry Reid is running the Washington Generals offense, and we are supposed to not notice when the GOPosaurs showboat while the Democants in the Senate miss almost on purpose.

    Well, they ain't almost missing on purpose. The Democrats in the Senate ARE missing on purpose, because the Special Interests that fucking own them say so, and if Mr. Taylor says Senator Smith is out of line, he sure as hell better step back in line if he knows what's good for him.

    Don't get your hopes up with this crowd. Mr Smith didn't go to Washington in 2008, Mr Baucus did, and Mr Reid, and Mr Bayh and Mr Nelson and Mr McConnell and well you know the rest.

    If ever there was a Mr. Smith, it would be Al Franken, and see what is happening to him. I wish he'd do a tv blitz a la that Dick Cheney.

    Yes, a lot of this is Harry Reid's fault. If he was half the Senate Majority Leader as Trent Lott or Bill Frist we would still need three or four more Harry Reid's to make a whole Harry Reid. What's worse, who would replace Harry "Punt on First Down" Reid? Evan Bayh? Chuck Schumer? Some other ConservaDem, sellout or worse, a Republican?

    When I saw members of our freshman Senate class this year go ConservaDem I had my doubts, but after compromise and compromise, I think the bets are in. The status quo on all fronts have backed up their bet against change by donating as much as they can against whatever you got. Health Care, War Crimes, EFCA, Executive powers, gay rights, banks, whatever, Wall St owens the joint, the special interests run the place and stop blaming Obama because he doesn't run the Senate!

    Cheney did.

    I say we should have two ActBlue donation meters for up on the FP at all times, one for general elections and one for primaries. We should make an example of a few of these Senate DINOsaurs. Isn't that a good way to getter to BETTER, now that we have MORE?

    Cause right now, the last thing we need is more assholes like these guys.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
