David Sirota Is Pissed...

And I mean really pissed:

...In the past, I may have contributed to some sort of organized pushback. But not this year. No, this time I can muster only one Cheney-esque response to the whole grotesque kabuki theater surrounding the inane "Future of the Democratic Party" debate: Go fuck yourself.

Evan Bayh and Third Way and The Democratic Strategist and the DLC and all the professional pundits and cable-TV zombies and D.C. spokesholes - all of you soul-raping corpses and shit-eating poindexters paid to appear on my television screen and scream at me about liberals ruining everything, please, I beg you on behalf of the silent irritated majority: Just go fuck yourself.

Go fuck yourself because all of your arguments are about what policies should be pursued to rescue Democratic politicians' electoral future, rather than about what policies are needed to rescue, say, the fucking country's future. Additionally, go fuck yourself because if you know so much about winning elections and if you are so sure conservadem-ism/Blue Dog-ism is the way to win said elections, how come it was the conservadems/Blue Dog candidates - not liberal candidates - who lost the most elections this year?

Also, go fuck yourself because the fact that you are even trying to create the same old bash-the-liberals debate exposes you not just as substantively wrong, but as professionally employed to despoil our culture with bullshit -- and specifically, with bullshit that you know is bullshit. That, really, everyone knows is bullshit...


Dayamn, David! Now that's what I call a wicked rant.

I'm disappointed in the way election day went, but I'm hardly angry over the way things played out on Tuesday. One reason is because a good chunk of the Democrats who lost their seats deserved to lose, by which I mean the ignorant asses known as the Blue Dogs. (Click on the link in the blockquoted text above for a basic rundown.) So while the Democratic representation in Congress will be much smaller in January, its makeup will be a lot better, it's something we can build on by running Democratic candidates who aren't of the Blue Dog variety, and hopefully, the people who didn't go out and vote this year will have come to their senses in 2012.

Which is an awful lot to hope for, I know. But I survived eight years of the Bush administration. I consider this more of a setback than anything else. Though the next couple of years could be ugly...
