If you have "no place to go," come here!

Not with a bang but a whimper

Dem genius strategerist David Axelrod:

"If there's a political strategy not to cooperate, there's not a whole lot that you can do about it."

Well, you could have indicted a boatload of Republican lawbreakers and sent them to jail for torture, warrantless surveillance, corruption in Iraq, and so forth. Then you could have indicted another boatload of banksters and sent them to jail for accounting control fraud. You could have cleaned house.

That would have destroyed the Republican brand for a generation, and the conservative movement, too. And that would have been change that brought hope.

But, really, it's just a lot easier to sell yourself out to the highest bidder. Which the Dems did. And here we are!

By now, it should be obvious that you can't indict a boatload of Republicans for war crimes and banksters for fraud without implicating a host of Democrats as well. Although this is of little concern to Correntians, it does scare the hell out of the likes of David Axelrod.

Don't no don't now try to get yourself elected
If you do you had better cut your hair
