Really everyone of the Dems besides The Progressive Caucus and The Out Of Iraq Caucus and a few others who are REALLY working to stop the war (and who deserve more praise than we tend to give them)…..have given up on The Base.
The General Populace….or as we like to call them…..Voters, want the War over, and they want it over bad. We….being the base…..want it over even worse. Pelosi is right when she says that Iraq overrides everything else. But we can also add in Torture, Fisa, NOT enforcing subpoenas…..and at this point, NO high profile efforts to hold Bushco accountable. If the Dem Leadership was competent, there would be a new story on the endless permutations of the illegality of Bushco leading the news every night.
From the desperate interest in Ron Paul, to talk of another third party, to MANY folks on blogs saying they just won’t vote (and think on how THAT translates into the Gen Pop!) ……my question, in sooth, the way I am choosing to “facilitate communication” with our Congressional Democrats today to get them to WAKE THE FUCK UP, is by asking…..Is The Base Fleeing?
