This'll be a short diary, but I'm about to scream right now and have to vent. Howard Dean is a winner. He understands exactly what the average Democrat stands for and votes for. He also understands exactly how disgusting the right-wing and the Republican Party are. He's not afraid to spread the truth about the right, and if that truth happens to hurt a few wittle wight-wing feewings, well, TOO FUCKING BAD.

What we have now are people that are afraid of their own shadows, let alone the Goddamn Republicans. The WH and the asswipes in the Senate have been deathly afraid of offending these certifiable nutcases. I just saw Richard Wolffe saying that the WH is planning on going balls to the wall this year and is, in effect, done with putting up with the attacks from the right. A little problem there: TOO. FUCKING. LATE. We just LOST a Senate seat in Massachusetts. We couldn't get shit done with 60 votes in the Senate, what makes you think anything will be done now with 59? The bubble around the WH has made the Democratic Party unbelievably weak. Like, losing a senate seat in Massachusetts weak. Wolffe also said that the WH was "surprised" about the party discipline from the GD Republicans. ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? SURPRISED? I've lived in Kansas my entire life and I could've told you on the night of Obama's win exactly how the right and the GOP were going to play this. These morons get paid how much and have direct access to the President and they were fucking surprised? Jesus! Watching five minutes of politics would tell a person living in complete isolation in fucking Siberia who and what the Republicans are and how they roll. Christ on a crouton.

After Wolffe, the good Dr. came on. Said people are upset with the kind of change they're seeing, that it's not the change they voted for. That they didn't vote for an insurance industry-written bill. That they didn't vote for sweetheart deals with Wall Street. And that there are "a lot of Democrats who aren't sure if they're Democrats." I'm sorry, this guy is more of a leader than the empty suit in the WH. Get Kaine's sorry ass out of there and put Dean back in. He knows what we're up against and knows how to win.

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.
