Confluence: The problem is the party itself. 2008 was the year that the party abandoned its principles. It is no longer the party of FDR and shared responsibility. Now, it is the party of wannabe rich libertarian Democrats. It is the party of the Ariana Huffingtons who, dissatisfied with her own party, have decided to steal someone else’s. It isn’t the party that nearly elected Bobby Kennedy. It is the party that is about to write off Appalachia. Good riddance, poor working people! You’re on your own now. It isn’t the party that made social security sacred. It is the party that might very well start tinkering with it because the young and well off don’t understand the concept of shared responsibility and insurance.
What’s hilarious is today the Obamabots finally realized the sexism throughout the campaign. They were silent when Obama referred to a female reporter as sweetie, they were silent for all the cunts, whores, bitches, and dikes on Dkos and HuffPo, but today they decide to take notice. One wonders if this is all because tomorrow Hillary will give a speech and the Dems will be expected to hold hands and do their unity dance.
It ain’t going to happen. Party Unity My Ass. Yes Hillary will suspend her campaign, and she may be offered the VP nod, but it won’t change a damn thing. Obama will lose big come November. Hillary probably realizes the stupidity of going down with a sinking ship. Some people say Dean and the DNC are fully aware of this fact, but need Obama’s fund raising ability for down ticket voting.
