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

Quote of the day from Donna Brazile

Donna Brazile discovers the unterbussen. She writes:

Sometime between my celebrating Barack Obama’s inauguration and traveling through 33 states this year, listening to folks discuss their frustrations with the pace of progress, it dawned on me: It’s about jobs.

"It's the economy, stupid!"

Of course, Donna didn't think that when she threw the "folks" she's now "listening" to under the bus:

[BRAZILE: ]Well, Lou, I have worked on a lot of Democratic campaigns, and I respect Paul. But, Paul, you're looking at the old coalition. A new Democratic coalition is younger. It is more urban, as well as suburban, and we don't have to just rely on white blue-collar voters and Hispanics. We need to look at the Democratic Party, expand the party, expand the base and not throw out the baby with the bathwater.

How's that working out, Donna?

And Donna didn't think that when she told the unterbussen to get ready for the cuts:

[BRAZILE: ][Obama's] going to have to put things on the table that perhaps many of us would not like to see a Democratic president put on the table in terms of cutting back on spending, freezing hiring and making some real tough decisions. So, I think he will be constrained by the deficit and also by the fact that we're still in two major wars.

And then there are things, like single payer, that were taken off the table, too.

Oh, and I really like "frustrations with the pace of progress." What progress would that be?

I just love this. Brazile is just such an over-privileged, under-talented hanger-on. Glad to see an article that makes her look that way.

thought I'd see a dem administration as clueless as the Bush/GOP but here it is.

I don't accept that narrative. I think the Dems are doing exactly what they want.

Sure, there are factions that are closer to what we'd prefer on policy. And if they acted like Stupak, we might be getting somewhere. But they don't and won't. So, since we have no money, the only thing we can do is inflict pain, as efficiently and rapidly as possible. And the best way to do that is to create positive alternatives: Some place to go.

My God, the damage that woman and the DNC did. How can they be that stoopid?

Brazile is always turning up. That this woman is still seen as someone to listen to is itself an indictment of the Democratic Party and Versailles.
