No Comments to “With "Democrats" like these, who needs "Republicans"?”

  • I’m all for taking out lieberman (DINO) and the Nelsons… The Fla Nelson really shocked me.

  • America!

  • Anonymous,

    America needs the GOP (Graft On Parade) in the same fashion that we need a rabid, crazed herd of Elephants with loose bowel syndrome crashing around the Capitol and the White House for 5 years without a single shred of competence among them. Come to think of it, that is exactly what we have had.

    I am proud to say that even the thought of voting for any one of them has never crossed my mind. Only the software votes for these insipid, hypocritical morons, certainly not a majority of us!

    By the way tetricus, Lieberman already has an opponent, Ned Lamont, who is outpolling Joe “Dr. Zoidberg” Loserman by a great margin. Joe will go — no doubt about it, depending of course on whether the software will allow it. And that’s still a big “if” everyone.

  • Go ahead and “take out” Lieberman and the Nelsons. Go ahead, and guarantee we have fewer than 40 votes in the Senate, and then the Republicans can ram through all kinds of garbage through Congress.

    I swear many on the left do NOT understand Politics 101. In fact, many of them do FAR more harm than good.

    If you want to change things, make sure our votes are counted, work to prevent fraud, because if we don’t, we are going to have more Scalitos and even less Democratic opposition in the Senate.

  • Oh, Lieberman will win re-election, all right, because he IS a liberal but for Iraq.

    Lamont is a joke, just like Hackett is loudmouth joke.

  • Loserman and the Nelsons will lose to progressive (real) Democrats in the primaries. We won’t lose those seats to the dark side. That is, unless the sofware and supression control the vote again. Lamont is terrific, and Lieberman has lost serious Joementum. Not sure about the Nelson (NE) and Nelson (FL) races. Suitable challengers will arise. The people have had it. We’re in a new era. This criminal cabal must go.

  • Real Democrats? I got news for you real Democrats are the moderates like Lieberman progressives like yourself need to join the Green party. Democrats will not win back the House or Senate in 2006 nor will they win the Presidency in 2008 because of progressives like you.

  • On the contrary, we progressives are the reason the Democratic Party of Jefferson will regain control and restore democracy after the black, Bush disaster years. The only thing that installed Bush in power in the first place is election fraud, and that’s all that has kept him and his people in the White House and Congress for these 5 years. Oh yeah, that and the collection of media presstitudes, christian lunatic billionaires and filthy rich resource plundering plutocrats now controlling the Republican Party. And by the way, I’m a centrist, right smack dab in the radical middle of America. I am a former army lieutenant, a lawyer, and a small businesswoman with no prior political activism whatsoever until the Bush hijack of our democracy. Importantly, I am in the broad majority — just look at any real poll.

    Hair on Fire

  • Liar liar, Hair on Fire. Bush is in power because he beat Gore and Kerry, fair and square. And if the Dems want to follow this “Thelma and Louise” wing over the cliff, I’m not going to stop them.

  • Of course you wouldn’t stop anyone from going over a cliff; your ilk becomes sexually excited over the prospect of high-fiving one of your mouth-breather goon friends over the death of anyone who dares disagree with the propaganda in which your existence is ensnared.

    Funny, I recall a time not long ago when I literally knew NO ONE who voted repug or thought of their party as anything but a party of rich, sadistic, fascist dicks. Come to think of it, nothing’s changed. They’re the kind who, as I recall growing up, always had to have a dozen of their friends back them up for bullying or fighting cause they don’t have what it takes to go it alone – hence, that telltale repug trademark of utter lack of independent thought..what they later refer to as “party discipline.” LOL
