It recently occurred to me that Democrats are like children in a dysfunctional family. They see dad drunk and passed out on the floor but mom assures them that he is only lying on the floor because he is tired from working so hard for them all.
Dems have to start saying that the Democratic National Committee is drunk on the floor. It isn't tired from working hard for us, it is just a no good drunk. It doesn't value its family, it won't even defend it. The Greens and Libertarians demand vote counts while the Dems insist there is no reason to do so.
Now we are told to admire our drunk parent and everything will be fine. The only problem is that it never works out, as pointed out in the blog, Deride and Conquer.
And watch the Democratic Party leadership walk on eggshells, try to meet him, please him, wash the windows better, get out that spot, distance themselves from gays and civil rights. See them cry for the attention and affection and approval of the President and his followers. Watch us squirm. Watch us descend into a world of crazy-making, where logic does not work and the other side tells us we are nuts when we rely on facts. A world where, worst of all, we begin to believe we are crazy.
While the author is talking about Republicans, I think that the description works for the Democratic party as well. Democrats are the victims of Democratic party abuse before the Republicans even have a chance to lay a hand on us. The people who run our party don't care about us at all. Our lousy nominee even squirreled away money that could have been used to prevent vote fraud or help Congressional candidates.
Sorry, I forgot. He was just working hard for us.
