Good News For Republicans

The far left thinks they've bought the Democratic party, now they want it back.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Liberal powerhouse MoveOn has a message for the "professional election losers" who run the Democratic Party: "We bought it, we own it, we're going to take it back."

A scathing e-mail from the head of MoveOn's political action committee to the group's supporters on Thursday targets outgoing Democratic National Committee (news - web sites) chairman Terry McAuliffe as a tool of corporate donors who alienated both traditional and progressive Democrats.

"For years, the party has been led by elite Washington insiders who are closer to corporate lobbyists than they are to the Democratic base," said the e-mail from MoveOn PAC's Eli Pariser. "But we can't afford four more years of leadership by a consulting class of professional election losers."

The good news is that the chances of a centrist leading the Democratic ticket anytime in the future just keep getting bleaker and bleaker.

My gosh. The party's already starting to self-destruct? It's only a little more than a month after the election.

MoveOn should take the reins for the DNC. Like I've heard -- it's the gift that keeps on giving.

A bit OT but some not so good news for Republicans....

It looks like Kerik has withdrawn his name for consideration in the DHS secretary position. Personally, I think he would have made a good one.

Even more OT, I managed to post on this... amazingly enough in a timely, though brief manner... it's shameless begging for a Wizbanging! ;-)

Here's my novice TOT - totally off thread (if that is what "OT" means) -

Can a third party, non-weblogmaster request a wizbanging for someone else's site? :)
I think BummerDietz's scyllacharybdis.blogspot.com would be well-linked to wizbangblog on the CBSgate subject, especially the latest 2 MSM hit pieces on conservative bloggers. (Threads entitled "Embittered Bill Moyers-Goebbels Attacks" and "CBS: Irony-Free Zone")

I don't think that's good news.
The GOP is starting to get cocky. The last thing we need is for them to think they're power is unassailable.

Veeshir - Cocky, yes, and plenty of reason to be. But I don't think they've become complacent or incautious. Should the DNC actually start looking viable, coherant, or sane again, the GOP will snap to.

Kind of reminds me of the movie FATAL ATTRACTION. You gotta be really careful who you shack up with. Otherwise I think it's funny. The DNC was on the skids and Moveon.org is simply greasing them.

Welllll....I'm not at all surprised by this Moveon latest missive. I described them as a terrorist organization (I mean that, in the truest sense of the expression, based upon Moveon's behavior) earlier on in this past year, based upon many if not all of their ads and truly alarming email "newsletters" -- the ad they ran that featured a failing U.S. military man was truly an enemy of the nation at work -- anyway, I've considered them to be terrorism-at-work for a while now.

About this latest thing they've declared, at least they don't have guns (I don't think their membership is prone to gun ownership as a majority, but you really never know), but, once they start brandishing weapons, it's time to call in the military to respond to them, because their published material and these various threats and statements seem quite terrorising in theme.

But it's refreshing to see liberals finally dropping the pretense: the Democratic Party was, it seems, a commodity and the liberal value system really was/is based in commerce after all -- all that flowery idealism by the recent liberals of the DNC campaign, that negates the American commercial efforts (all those "rich" "business" people versus the "people"), what WAS that?
