• Chili just makes me fart ... so please get behind me and enjoy the gentle breeze
  • Kos himself disputes this lie ... well has Kos taken the time to independently verify this ... is the be all to end all in Blogoland?

    Sounds like your rapture for Kos exceeds that for Dean.

    Smell the Roses ... We'll get Rosenberg in there on the inside to report / & leak all Howard's misgivings.

  • Classic herd mentality and group think about how Dean is the second coming.

    I doubt that you as a serious Dino ever have the ability to critically comment on the failings of Howard Dean or his failings to so far put foward a winning political strategy.

    Howard Dean certainlly is the not the choice of a Middle American Democratic populice.

    Your elevator is going down ... and soon there will be a sign on it that says Out Of Order for lack of upward movement.

    PS: Your New Master Democratic Dad, HD, has not done so good with his son, Paul Dean, has he. Nor, has the New Master Democratic Husband, HD, with his wife Judith Steinberg. Guess she really hasn't endorsed him has she?

    This formula does not compute well for the Democratic Party:
    Dean(DNC)+ BLOGNuts(Netroots Dinos) <= Winning Strategy / Winning DNA for House/Senate in 2006 & Presidency in 2008

    Dean will not be a cohesive force in helping foster a more successful Democratic Party. His DNA brand of DeanNA does not equal a good political combination.

    In other words, his political Voodoo DNA ain't going to help father and nuture winning Democratic Candidates.

    Howard's psychological profile shows implosion is just a scram away. Sure, "He hates Republicans" ... but I believe he hates himself even more and the politically / economically powerless (correlates with heavy Blogging)are following Dean down a sad track where there will be a Democratic Party Trainwreck with HD at the controls.

    Here's what I think will happen with Dean at the DNC:

    • White male voters in the South will continue their exodus to the Republicans as they have done so ever since LBJ helped get the Civil Rights bill passed. Their DixieLike perception of the Democratic Party with HD as the titular head will just reinforce the notion that the Republican Party as the White Peoples Party & the Anti Gay Party. The Republican / Rove / Media complex will make this certain.

    • Brown male and female voters in the Southwest will see that Dean & The Democratic Party are not the Party of God like the Republican Party is. These serious Catholics from south of the border sure ain't going to cotton to the Anti God / Anti Family values that they know have a perception that the Democratic Party is. Take a look at the 2004 Stats for Arizona and learn more.

    • White male jewish cabal on Wall Street sure in the hell ain't going to be throwing money toward the Democrats with Howard Dean in there ... they percieve him as Anti-Establishment and the Republicans as the Party for the Establishment / the Party For Golf Club Goers / The party for the less than conservative "HAVE MORES" So that leaves Dean and the DNC to rely on the PiggyBank fundraising mentality of NetRooters with that clanging type of money instead of the folding money.

    • All color white/female serious Church Goers are certainly not going to cotton to Dean and the Democrats who they see as the party of the faithless when they see the Republicans as the party of the faithful.

    JollyBuddah,

    Thanks for sharing your views on Howard Dean.

    I did ask: "Please let's get back on topic and give me 5 solid reasons you think HD is the best for the entire Democratic Party."

    The key here is THE ENTIRE DEMOCRATIC PARTY.

    I will reply to your first 5 reasons:

    "(1) His national media presence will help the party have a voice on national issues."
    That's fine, but John Kerry (who wipped your boys behind), said yesterday on NBC Meet The Press that the Entire Democratic Party needs less of a Spokesman and more of a Modernizer. I would certainlly want to hear one of our ELECTED POLITICIANS like Evan Bayh take on the Republicans before some UNELECTED POLITICAL PARTY MANAGER do it. In fact ... Evan Bayh did just that by voting against the nomination of Condy Rice. Evan is one of those DLC types that you folks show no respect for. Rosenberg would have a stable of ELECTED POLITICIANS & DEMOCRATIC STRATEGISTS & GRASSROOT BLOGGERS on his team. Rosenberg would not want the stage all to himself like Dean would.

    "(2) The passion he generates among the grassroots."
    Remember my earlier comment: The key here is THE ENTIRE DEMOCRATIC PARTY. Besides the grassroots ... how about our agingroots (aka as Seniors) ... how about bizroots (aka as Small Business owners). In other words ... the sun does not rise and fall around grassrooters. Rosenberg knows that and can lead all the many XYZroots of the Democratic Tree.

    "(3) Because he has been branded a liberal by the RWCM and is actually a slightly left moderate, he will allow the party to re-calibrate the liberal/conservative center of politics."
    Well spoken ... shows that Dean wants to interject his personal idelogue into mainstream Democratic America. We in the midwest don't much cotton to the leftie coastal Eastern / Western wings of the party. Rosenberg can play in Peoria ... meaning he can play in the Middle Coast / the East Coast / the West Coast and to Democratic Lefties / Righties / Centeries. I don't think Dean is capable of that.

    "(4) He is a genuine reformer."
    Kind a lame this reformer label shit. Reforming what ... fundraising? Political Leaning?, reforming Corporate America to turn us into a Sweeden like Socialist country. Rosenberg positions himself as a MODERNISER more than a REFORMER. He wants to Modernize our party and put it in the same league as the Republican Machine who along with Rove and others have consistently kicked our butts!

    "(5) The DLC doesn't want him to be Chair."
    Well that's kinda of lame. Sure ... any of the other DNC Chair Candidates including Rosenberg don't want Dean there.  THE PRAGMATIC DEMOCRATS like Rosenberg know that Dean is DEANVISIVE ... instead of UNITING OUR PARTY, HE WILL FURTHER DEANAKEN IT.

    Well have it ... but keep it simple and to the point. I have.

    Katherine,

    I read in your message that cedeing the Big Money Fundraising should just be in the realm of the Republicans.

    Is that what you really wanted to say?

    Converesely, you are saying that we Middle American Democrats should follow some Dino like Piggy Bank change / ATM fundraising strategy.

    Is that what you really wanted to say?

    Well ... the New Democrats using the "Third Way" got Bill Clinton elected in 1992 1nd 1996 and our nation prospered. Don't you think we should look at this "Third Way" again and get a DNC Chair to try that first than some "Dino Way" first.

    Being able to govern & fundraise from the middle (benefits both Middle Americans / Corporate Americans)

    Hope you have an open mind unlike radical Deaniacs

    Nanorich & Dinos,

    You must have missed part of your GED classes about critical writing skills.

    I would support Howard Dean or the Devil if I thought they had a chance in hell of defeating the Republican Machine ... they don't and they won't. HD and other Dinos can huff and puff all you want ... ain't going to help.

    The average Middle American Democratic voter is turned off by Yeeeeah! Dean and the Deanateers.

    I can see that you are some pretty skinskinned and frustrated people.

    Please let's get back on topic and give me 5 solid reasons you think HD is the best for the entire Democratic Party. I will then reprocate and voice my 5 most solid reasons why Simon Rosenberg is best for the DNC Chair.

  • on a comment on ASDC Chair Meeting over 9 years ago
    What will they throw next at him (Dean)

    Good question ... one thing that ain't going to get alot of 'throwing' after 2/12/05 if Dean is at the DNC is some serious folding money.

    THAT IS certainly sure ... the folding kind of money from PACS & Corporations.

    Do you think the BigBusiness/BigGoverment cartel with the likes of Boeing, Pfizer, Big Sugar, Ford, BP Amoco, etc. are going to be running over to the DNC with Dean there? Hell no.

    Rove must be grinning like heck if Dean gets into the DNC ... he along with I then can place some advanced bets in Las Vegas that there will be another Republican elected in 2008.

  • on a comment on ASDC Chair Meeting over 9 years ago
    It's ironic you mentioned "real change"

    Real Change in the blind eyes of a Dino activist is using nickles and dimes to fight the Republicans monetary warchest filled was that folding kind of money vs the clanging kind of Piggy Bank money.

    Let it come around to 2008 and let's see what type of money it's going to take to get someone in the Whitehose ... sure ain't going to be all that clanging kind.

    IMO ... Dean (has the votes not the money) falls right in line with other miserable failures of our political past like Ross Perot (had the money not the votes)

    To win it takes votes and money.

    Sorry to have you look at reality and think outside the Piggy Bank.

  • on a comment on ASDC Chair Meeting over 9 years ago
    NanoRich,

    I understand your frustraton when all you little Dinos rob all your kiddies Piggy Banks and could not Piggy Bank you way to getting Howard Dean elected.

    Here's the word:
    ... BIG MONEY DEMS ain't likin Dean.
    ... little money dems (Dinos) likin Dean.
    ..... who the hell in the world do you think can best ward off the MONSTER FATCAT REPUBLICANS?

    Sure in the hell ain't the little money dems. Like Bush said in Fah 911 Movie ... there are the "Haves" (Middle Amercan Democrats) and then there are us ... the "Have Mores" (Republicans)

    So ... get real. The Democratic Party will N-E-V-E-R be ruled by grass root activists like passionate DINOS.

    Anybody (including Rosenberg) who says so is just pandering to the wimpy Democratic "Haves" ... he knows that to kick the Republican :Have Mores" butt is going to take some saavy fundraising on Wall Street, Silicon Valley, Corp Boardrooms ... more than just the ATM like Piggy Bank mentality of the Dino Haves.

    Democratic Dad
    I have fathered alot of Democrats and sure like to rear Republicans.

  • on a comment on ASDC Chair Meeting over 9 years ago
    Parker,

    We Democratic Middle Americans understand your Dino passion. We not that you are basically frustrated in not having the monetary or mental capacity to get your Political God into national office. So my solution is if you can't move the mountain (aka as Democratic Centrist Middle Americans)you can build your own sandbox up north with HD and call it AmeriCaNean.

    Democratic Dad

  • on a comment on ASDC Chair Meeting over 9 years ago
    Aiko ... may I suggest that you and fellow Dinos all move to Vermont and vote to become AmeriCaNean ... American/Canadian/Dean.

    I really think you should have said Dean & Goliath or Dean vs Normal Democratic Middle Americans.

    Go to AmeriCaNean and you can then worship HD all you want and eat all the Ben & Jerry's ice cream you can.

  • on a comment on ASDC Chair Meeting over 9 years ago
    Thanks. We will be waiting!

    Friends ... looks like Simon is the netroots champion here.

    See the latest message to his supporters.

    **********
    Statement from Simon Rosenberg, January 31, 2005:

    "I am pleased to have had the opportunity to present my record and my vision for the Party to the executive committee of the ASDC this weekend.  Throughout this campaign, I have been encouraged by the depth and thoughtfulness of the conversation DNC members are holding about the future of our Party.

    It is clear today that the recommendation of the ASDC was achieved with only a plurality, but not a majority of committee members.  With a majority of the committee - 11 of the 19 - voting against the eventual recommendation or abstaining from the final vote, it is clear that there is no consensus candidate of the chairs at this time.

    As such, while I have great admiration and respect for the executive committee, I hope that the broader group of state chairs voting today will vote against their recommendation and instead recommend an open process where all 447 voting members of the DNC will have the chance to choose on February 12th from the 7 strong candidates who are running.

    I plan to fight on for the leadership of the Party I love.  I believe I am the Party's best choice for DNC chair, the only candidate who has the complete package for what we need today - chief executive experience, a history of winning in the red states, deep understanding of the new media tools of 21st century politics, a strong connection to the emerging grassroots/netroots culture so critical to our future, and the capacity and relationships to bring our diverse Party together so we can fight and win in all fifty state and six territories each and every day.  I look forward to continuing to make my case to the vast majority of DNC members who have not yet decided their vote."
