I am a Democrat. I have voted for a straight Democratic ticket in every election since 1966. I have never been less proud, nor more disgusted with my Democratic elected officials as I have been over this last year.
The Dems have proven the other side of the aisle rules. They have demonstrated completely that progressives do not have the backbone to govern, nor do they have any idea of what it means to win, not just an election, but a fucking MANDATE to change. They have duplicated Georgie Bush in how to squander the goodwill of the people, and have taken what was once a wave of electoral bliss and turned a certain victory in Mass. into a Repug call to arms.
Barack Obama may be our President, but he is not our leader. Glen Beck is. The Democratic Party is a real train wreck.
