Over at DailyDross, something called Hunter inveighs mightily against congressional do-nothingism on Iraq:
Let me try and make something clear to the Democratic members of the House and Senate. There's a world of hurt coming your way, and time is running out.You'll pardon me while I remove my soiled culottes.
What "world of hurt" this could be is beyond my ken. Here you have a Democratic partisan on a Democratic party blog dedicated to electing Democrats at all levels of government. Come, children, let us remember together:
This is a Democratic blog, a partisan blog. One that recognizes that Democrats run from left to right on the ideological spectrum, and yet we're all still in this fight together.Not exactly Demonsthenesian in its biting grandeur, but clear enough. The closest our Netrootsian Narcissi ever got to that nec plus ultra of the online Donkle daisy chain was the infamous Ned Lamont victory in the Connecticut Democratic primary, but then Lamont pulled the exceeding miracle of making the Lieb look like Dolf Lungren in the early scenes of Rocky Whateveritwas. Apparently some Navy drone named Joe Sestak got elected here in my Commonwealth of Pennsylvania as well, but the one and only time I caught him speaking on the television, I thought he looked and sounded like George Bailey after an age or two of sexual gimpery to a particularly brutish Clarence-the-Angel. Not entirely stable. Not altogether there.
Liberal? Yeah, we're around here and we're proud. But it's not a liberal blog. It's a Democratic blog with one goal in mind: electoral victory.
In other words, Hunter is working for a platform that elects schmoes and know-nothings--that makes it its very raise d'être to do so--and that schemes endlessly to increase the advantage of those schmoes and know-nothings already clutching at the strings of the fat national balloon. And we're to believe, somehow, that in his other pocket lurks some unnamed anathemas to hurl against the institutional Donkle's jiggling flank? I wouldn't believe it if I saw it.
