Is Kos Going to Have to Purge Himself?

It was actually funny when Kos said he was going to purge the moonbats from his site. We've had big fun with it here at Wizbang, but now he might have to purge himself...

Today Kos went off the deep end and is declaring war on the only Dems who have managed to win a real Presidential election since Kennedy. [The DLC]

The calm before the storm

Ultimately, this is the modern DLC -- an aider and abettor of Right-wing smear attacks against Democrats. They make the same arguments, use the same language, and revel in their attacks on those elements of the Democratic Party that seem to cause them no small embarrassment.

Two more weeks, folks, before we take them on, head on.

No calls for a truce will be brooked. The DLC has used those pauses in the past to bide their time between offensives. Appeals to party unity will fall on deaf ears (it's summer of a non-election year, the perfect time to sort out internal disagreements).

We need to make the DLC radioactive. And we will. With everyone's help, we really can. Stay tuned.

I shouldn't have to remind you the Kos kids have lost 16 of their last 16 elections. On the other had the DLC -- well James Joyner summed it up:

I would point out that the Republicans were believed to have a "lock" on the Electoral College, having won five of the last six presidential races, until DLC poster boy Bill Clinton won in 1992.

Whatever flaws the GOP has--and there are many--they will be a permanent majority party if the Howard Dean-MoveOn.org-Daily Kos wing of the Democratic Party becomes the face of the opposition.

Remember, since Kennedy the only non-DLC Dem to win was the one who came in after Nixon. (Carter) If not for Watergate they would have lost that one too. The DLC represents the last bastion of rationalism in the Democratic party; if the kooks declare war on it, you can kiss the party good-bye..

I never thought I'd say this but I wish Kos luck. Now you'll pardon me whilst I go enjoy the train wreck that is the Daily Kos comment section.

Update: I hate when you hit the post button and 3 minutes later you figured out what you should have said:

Kos told his followers: "(it's summer of a non-election year, the perfect time to sort out internal disagreements)" That will come as very, very good news to (ahem) Justice Roberts.

You want to read something funny ( but really sad)? Try visiting your cousins over at freeperville and watch them implode in full. I guess they are finally realizing how they've been played by the coward and chief.

Iraq Constitution allows Theocratic Islamic Dictatorship to take hold. So much for the lying bastards and their 3rd excuse for this diversionary war. What happened to "democracy" all of a sudden? Oh right, screw that we need to save face and get the hell out of there asap.

I would be laughing myself silly over these crackpots if the issue wasn't so serious.

BTW, The DLC is nothing more than an elephant dressed in a donkey costume. Most of the Democratic party is aware of this and are acting now to purge these creeps long before 2006 elections.

The corrupt msm had a greater interest in pushing the DLC all of these years. The DLC is all for corporate deregulation and war mongering. The "one hand washes the other" mentality would be in place regardless of a Dem. or Rep. being elected and from the corrupt msm standpoint it's all good.

One of the real problems the Democrats have is the relative youth of their activist base, and their dogged determination not to learn from their elders. This means that old lessons must be learned anew every couple decades. Kos is 33 years old; he wasn't even old enough to drink when Clinton was first elected and he claims to have been a Republican before that, so he doesn't remember the Democrats wandering the desert for all but 4 years between 1968 and 1992. The argument about whether appealing to the radical base or to the center would get them elected was settled by Bill Clinton.

What a surprise. Mention smoking crack and look who shows up. I'm not sure if that's a sign that he's smoking crack or is a smoking crack but i suspect it's a little of both.

Judgement Day Cometh:... (Below threshold)

Judgement Day Cometh:

I don’t put a lot of stock in polls but I really don’t think that 36% is accurate. Rasmussen has President Bush’s approval rating at 48%

http://www.rasmussenreports.com/Bush_Job_Approval.htm

Rasmussen was only 1% off correctly predicting President Bush would win in the last presidential election, while ARG was 3% off, predicting a tie, so I’d be more inclined to believe Rasmussen’s poll than ARG.

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/Commentary/blog_11_8_04_1018.html

Whenever a President is willing to tackle the tough issues there is going to be a lot of bitterness, so I’m not surprised that his approval ratings are somewhat low. Given that the far left would not approve of President Bush no matter what he did (unless he took orders from them) I don't think 48% is all that bad. Of course it doesn't matter much because President Bush isn't running for office again.

shark, above, has lurched uncontrollably onto a very important point. Not only is Bush not running in 2008 it's pretty unlikely that any senior member of the Administration will be running. That sounds to me like both the Republicans and Democrats will be running against Bush in 2008. Since that's nearly the only issue the Dems have at this point, that could land them in serious difficulty.

Lin, For what it's worth the Rasmussen poll is an "outlier" and Rasmussen has always had a fondness for republicans ( if you get my drift).

Funny how they present this outlier now when every other polling company is more on target with the 36%.

Yessery, just in time to have something for people like yourself to point to.

NAH, nothing shady going on there. LOL

Why are republicans so fixated on what others do in the privacy of their own bedrooms?

It's a rhetorical question. We in the general public are well aware of the answer.

The meanies at CBS/ABC/NBC/CNN are all in Rove's back pocket, and they're blocking all of the stuff you and your friends are trying to get out to the good, decent, upstanding, but infinitely stupid and uneducated American people!

You need to get their attention! Tell them how the neocon cabal is going to rape Mother Earth, murder her sacred brown children, and ravage every soybean field until all of the tofu is gone!

There are cameras in Crawford, Texas right now, waiting to carry your urgent communication to every corner of the world! Tell them! TELL THEM!!! THEY DON'T KNOW!!! TELL THEM ALL!!!

Jay Tea:

Judgment, I took John Burgess' remarks to be a reference to induced vomiting. It certainly seems a fit for describing what Kos does when he's at the keyboard, and ties in much more nicely with the "purge" theme. Why does your mind immediately run to the gutter? "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone," and all that.

Lin:

Sure, Judgement if you and other liberals want to believe President Bush's approval rating is in the 30's go ahead and believe it. It doesn't affect me either way.

However what "PROOF" do you have that they favor Republicans? Or is it just that since it shows President Bush's approval rating at 48% and you would rather believe it is 36%, you have decided that Rasmussen’s poll results MUST favor Republicans?

You can't argue with accuracy results. Rasmussen was closer than ARG in predicting the presidential election results. It makes more sense that Rasmussen’s poll is more accurate here. Perhaps APG favors Democrats? I don't have any proof they do, but since you seem to think that they are more accurate what is your "proof"?

Um, you're taking the wrong test. Verbal diarrhea put to print is the correct answer - not sexual innuendo. Quit falling asleep in class or we'll have to flunk you... again!

Improbulus Maximus:

I have to believe that little Marky Zuniga and JDC get their operational orders from Rove, because everything they do only hurts the dhimmis' chances for reelection. There is also the added benefit that RINO's like Voinovich, et al, are drawn out to expose themselves for the spineless jellyfish that they are, drifting on the political current with no direction of their own.
