I have received a couple of emails from a fellow (who I guess should remain nameless for some reason or another) that wrote to me to state that I was in some kind of minority, and suggested that I read from his
tree of knowledge about why I must be wrong about defending the Democratic Congressional leadership. What's funny is that he professed to be a democrat himself.
He tried to blame the war in Iraq on the Democrats! He also said that the Democrats deliberately "caved in" because they were afraid of how they would "look," and yet in the same email he acknowledged that there were just not enough votes to override the president's veto. (Cousin IT syndrome
.) He even tried to disparage Representative Henry Waxman
My first thought was, if you want to be a whiney little crybaby looking for a comforting shoulder to boo-hoo on, why don't you do it on you own blog? But of course he doesn't have a blog, nor does he have the cajones to post his comments publically like everyone else.
To this particular emailer, I would just like to suggest that he take Karl Rove's opinion, and shove it so far up his ass that it comes spilling out his mouth. Oh, wait - he's already done that! That is what his whole email was about!
Good luck in you new positition as tentacle bearer third class in the GOP Cthulu Corps.
As a Democrat, I welcome all comers to our big tent - even you, GOP Cthulu boy
. Just don't expect me to agree with you, or the ridiculous simpering tone of your email. Why don't you get back to me after you grow a pair, Sunshine.
For those that are complaining that the Democratic leadership has not delivered a non-stop fairy tale ending that meets their expectations, let me just remind you that the Democrats only have a slim majority in the house and the senate.
If they can't take that slim majority and use it to stop speeding locomotives and leap over tall building in a single bound after only a few months, then I can only console myself with the fact that the Republicans have had years to mess things up this badly. It might just take a while to clean things up.
A slim majority is only a slim majority, and you can only work with what you've got. I am increasing dismayed at how many Democrats are selling Girl Scout Cookies for Karl Rove lately. Let Karl Rove sell his own damn cookies.
