LOL! The Dems Haven't Even Won Yet, and Already They're Calling for a Purge
(Hat tip: Donald McClarey via email)
Glenn Greenwald is ready to give the "Blue Dogs" the boot.
What an incredibly stupid thing to propose in a year in which the Dem nominee for President is having problems attracting "Blue Dog" type Democrats (you know, the folks "clinging" to "God and guns"). Threatening to "boot" such folks from the Democrat Party is sure to win them over to Sen. Obama's cause.
Never mind that the ONLY reason the Dems are in control of Congress right now is because they were smart enough in 2006 to run a whole lot of "Blue Dogs" (as well as a whole lot of folks who pretended to be more conservative than they really are) for congressional seats in districts that are fairly conservative.
But if the Dems are stupid enough to believe that there is a "progressive" (i.e. left-liberal) majority in this country that will keep them in power without the "Blue Dogs", far be it from me to stand in their way as they purge their ranks of moderate-to-conservative members.
Good luck retaining those red state seats, by the way. Not to mention winning the White House.
