Why Democrats Fail

People who can't spot a crystal clear pattern piss me off.

I knew a kid in my high school who used to get beaten up a lot. He was a geek with a laugh that would be best described as a snortlewhumpus. Did I mention he used to get beaten up a lot? Towards the end of middle school, he started taking self defense classes and working out. I was in line behind him on the first day of high school as we walked off the bus. He looked weird... different... hhhmmm...

A few kids spotted us getting off the bus, and they came over to pick on him. The first kid walked up, made a nasty comment, and then found himself face down on the pavement after a swift one-two punch. The others walked away, and that was the end of the geek getting beaten up.

The Democratic Party is getting beaten up - and worse - it's their own fault. The pattern is clear, but they're doing nothing about it.

When people who make less than $100,000 vote republican, there's a problem. When people who weren't born into a life of privilege vote republican, there's a problem. When elderly people vote republican... There Is A Problem.

In fact, I think there are several problems.

Tuesday night confirmed that the party learned absolutely nothing from the fiasco of 2000.

Nothing.

Why should we expect 2008 to be any different?

...sigh...

And with that, it's time for this blog to move on... Enough politics.

I agree with randy rhodes on air america radio (www.airamericaradio.com) that there is NO WAY all those people turned out to stand, for up to 5 hours, in the rain and cold just to vote in the status quo... no way... they were there to vote for change

hang in there, rob

While I agree that we probably did win this election, and we certainly won the last election, I don't think that's the point.

Why was the election even CLOSE in the first place, given Bush's many many blunders?

The Democratic party has lost it's way. It's about more than the presidency. We keep losing in the senate. We keep losing in the house.

Also, while I agree that 'our' people waited for hours to vote for change, don't forget that republicans waited for hours to vote agains' them gays an' agains' tha' guy who wants 'Merica to lose the war on terror.

Never underestimate the power of smear and fear. ...but again, the presidency is only one example of the democrats' problems.
