The DLC is a Joke
Bush's approval ratings are at an all time low, in large part because the public has turned against the occupation of Iraq. What does the Democratic Leadership Conference do in response to their opponent being on the ropes? They say we need to send more troops to Iraq.
Progressives should not be intimidated into supporting them. They are losers. The lesser of two evils argument doesn't work because this "evil" side is incapable of winning. So don't worry about them. Don't back the next Kerryesque empty suit. They will lose. Go ahead and say what you want and do what you want. Forget the DLC.
