Brilliant rant

From First Draft:
We can fucking count, out here. We know what 51 means. We know what 257 means. We're not morons. And all the procedural whatsit you argue today, about ConservaDems and Blue Dogs, doesn't mean shit. You had it, and we worked hard to give it to you, and we see you calling things impossible which are just very hard, and we get fucking annoyed, because we don't get to get away with that shit. Not at our jobs and not in our lives.

Now, I'm not excusing the Party of I Hate You or these teabagging excuses for human beings who think education is vaguely homosexual in some sinister way, but I am saying that the lesson we're all going to take away from this is that America just isn't a Democratic nation and we should all tack to the right and us hippies should just die in a fire already, which is bullshit. The lesson we should take away from this is that America doesn't like pussies, doesn't like whiners and it sure as fuck doesn't like parties that pretend to be able to do less than they can do just because they don't want to work that hard or have Chris Matthews call them mean.

You had majorities. You had power and you told us you were powerless. Why would anyone reward that with more power? Why would anyone think that's a good idea?



  • The unfortunate thing is that below the headline level, this didn't hold true.

    The House pushed through remarkable piece after remarkable piece of legislation, only to watch it go and die in the Senate. So what happens? Nancy Pelosi loses her majority, but the electorally conservative Senate keeps Harry Reid.

    20+ Blue Dogs went down in flames, cutting that benighted caucus in half, but so did progressives who went long and hard and fought the good fight, like Alan Grayson and Tom Perriello. We lost Russ Feingold, but we're still stuck with Ben Nelson and Joe Lieberman.

    As attractive as the "Dems were pussies and deserved to lose" trope is, it's unfortunately the ones who stuck their necks out that got chopped.

  • I know that the devil’s in the details, but the real problem is the ship’s sinking and the crew’s arguing over who get’s to drive.

    For every 1 elected willing to take a stand in Washington, there’s 3,4 or more who would sell their souls for another turn. When did our elected officials start hanging on Comedy Central? There’s a point there, I just haven’t figured it out yet.

    Great rant, I thoroughly enjoyed it!
