Today's Dose

Here is today's pick for the "please, oh please stop teasing us. Just do it already," award.

"It should not be a surpirse to everybody that the DLC has placed Tim Roemer as a candidate for the chairmanship of the Democratic Party. He has been placed there to counter Howard Dean. It seems that Roemer's candidacy is gaining ground. I cannot believe Nancy Pelosi, a one-time firebrand liberal, has given her endorsement. Hasn't anybody sent Pelosi a letter about this? It seems to me that the DLC is making an attempt to shift the Democratic Party closer to the GOP's stance particularly in regards to abortion, gay rights, Iraq, and the whole thing. You know and I know this is unacceptable. Will progressives and liberals continue to support a party that is drifting closer to fascism? Why? If Roemer gets it does this mean Joe Lieberman will be the Democratic nominee for president in 2008?

The wise decision should Mr. Roemer get the seat is to leave the sinking ship called the Democratic Party and make a new start of it in a new political party that will carry on the true Democratic Party values. I know this is not a popular idea but why would you want to be associated with a bunch of Republican wannabes and weak-knees? Ultimately, I would want to see the new party unite with other progessive and left third parties to form a united opposition coalition to get these bums out of office from the local level to the federal level.

The only candidates I see that are worth their salt in this are Dean and former Denver Mayor Wellington Webb. Other than that, I cannot see how the others will be affective. Roemer is too much of a DLC player to be DNC Chair and I would encourage anybody who plans to vote for the post, not vote for Roemer. Otherwise, the Democratic Party is finished."

From DU, of course.
