The Whipped-Dog Party?
I don't know what it is. Is it that the Democrats just don't want to fight?
In yet another example of Democratic wishy-washy let's-not-offend-anyone-least-of-all-that-big-mean-Republican-bully- who-keeps-kicking-sand-in-our-faces wussiness, the WaPo reports that "a number of prominent liberals" have joined in the criticism of a hard-hitting NARAL ad against John "Fuck You Veterans" Roberts.
Naturally the Thugocracy Party went into full-on faux-outrage mode about the ad, and instead of telling them to piss up a rope, the Dems went into full-on whipped-dog retreat.
Republican operative Greg Mueller, who advised the Swift boat group, said the NARAL ad was pulled not because of Democratic wavering but because "it was so false, so outrageously false, that they were hurting the Democratic Party." He said Republicans have done "nothing even close" to that level of dishonesty.Jeus Christ! How many goddamn lies will it take before people finally wake up to these fuckers? You want lies, you want dishonesty, you want outrageous falsehoods, just take a look back at the Swift Boat Liars for Bush.
The NARAL case was the latest incident to provoke Democratic recriminations. In June, Democrats demanded that Bush aide Karl Rove apologize for saying that liberals wanted "therapy and understanding for our attackers." Rove refused to apologize, and Republicans leapt to his defense. Just before the Rove episode, Republicans demanded an apology from Richard J. Durbin (Ill.), the number two Democrat in the Senate, who likened U.S. treatment of prisoners in Guantanamo Bay to techniques used by Nazis. Democrats joined in criticizing Durbin, who eventually delivered a tearful apology on the Senate floor.Jesus, why do I belong to a party that refuses to stand up to these schoolyard bullies? Have we just given up? Do we not want to win elections any more?
