I think we can all agree that any nominee of the Democratic Party is going to be more receptive to progressive initiatives, make better appointments and nominations, and run the Executive Branch more competently than any Republican.
What I am far more concerned about is-
- The Continuing Occupation of Iraq
- The Erosion of our Constitutional Liberties
- The Congenital Criminal Corruption in D.C.
The solution to these concerns is not in the White House, but at the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue- in the halls of Congress.
Through both Republican and Democratic administrations over the last 30 years the level of incestuous self absorption by the Beltway Bozo Pandering Pundit Political Media Elite, the Fatheaded Sissies and Whiny Bloviators, the Arrogant Asskissing Acceptors of Access, the So-Called “Serious People” with their Mindless Masturbatory Illusions of Self Importance and Constant Cacophony of Condescending Calumny and Lies has increased to levels not seen since the Gilded Age.
Like gilding their Inflated Pompous Balloon Egos are micrometers thick. They need a good prick, and I am one.
I think we need to be devoting our time and energy to producing a dominant Democratic majority in Congress and within that a Powerful Progressive Caucus.
Anything else is not going to produce the results we want. Primary, primary, primary. Punish the Media with your eyeballs, emails, and money. Not a dime to the Corporate Enablers, sit on your ass and vote with your wallet.
Or indulge yourself in the amorphous meanderings of your particular cult of personality, whatever.
Wishing for a strong man (or woman) on a white horse is delusional dreaming. Working with others to produce a profound change in direction is quite something else and one or two elections and lucky breaks won’t do anything but delay the damage and I’m so very tired of being the little Dutch boy with my fingers in the dike.
