Democrats inaction

What a day.

First, the Democrats help Bush do another one of his "let's open the liquor cabinets to keep the rubes happy while we ransack the jewelry box and wall safe" three-hundred-dollar giveaways on the national credit card, making our liberal media act like we all just hit the jackpot on the Oprah show even as Republican donors pack their offshore accounts with ill-gotten loot that would make Gordon Gecko blanch with a pang of guilt.

Then, while the citizenry is safely distracted by the jingly keys from real issues like a collapsing economy and growing signs of fascism in our nation, twelve so-called Democrats voted with the Republicans to pass the pro-immunity telecom eavesdropping laws, agreeing to virtually eradicate all rights of privacy and judicial relief from government and corporate lawbreaking. Most insulting of all, Democratic Senators and presidential candidates Clinton and Obama didn't even bother to make the effort to show up and fight for our rights while our own little banana republic government is selling us out to the highest bidders. Leadership like that will take us right into servitude to our aristocracy.

For much of the last several years I have been sympathetic because I thought that the Democrats were being forcibly held down against their will and brutally and repeatedly sodomized by the Republicans.

Now I think they let them do it because they really like it.

Damn, Milo! I been telling you they are all jerks! Have you heard about the bill to establish a commission to look into controlling "Homegrown Terrorism" yet?

Those of us who have written to our senators about it have got some pretty insulting replies. Essentially, it's a commission to look into making civil disobedience illegal. Check it out at "As Time Goes By," the first link on my blogroll.

I don't think it's quite that simple. I think there are a lot of DINO infiltrators in the party, and many of them have managed to insinuate themselves into positions of power. The Democrats need to realize that anybody who fights a liberal progressive agenda or policy is no friend of ours and invite them the hell out of the party, pronto.
