"If The Democrats Can Grow A Backbone..."

Jon used that phrase in the comments section of the last post, and yes, I am taking him waaay out of context, but it prompted me to think of the gelatinous mass above. Welcome to my mental image of the Democratic Party. There are still a few useful parts...I think the fang hanging on the right side of its mouth is Russ Feingold, the vestigial flippers are Kucinich and Leahy, Waxman is maybe the nose.

Update: Why yes, failure is their preferred option: Senate panel rejects gov't-run insurance plan

Pretty much sums up my opinion of them right now.

always wondered where that phrase came from.


yes...having given the legal household maximum to the Obama campaign, and contributions to various progressive politicians, it's a disgusting day. Not an unexpected one, and things have to get worse before they get better. The problem is with the "how much" part of worse.
