Why I Hate The Democratic Party

Charles Pierce over at Esquire sums it up nicely

For some reason, and I may never figure out why, the national Democratic party seems locked into the notion that there are national campaigns and local campaigns and that the latter affect the former only in what is accidental. Whereas the Republicans, through their vast interlocking political institutions like ALEC, take as gospel the notion that the national and the local are indistinguishable from each other in every important way. It’s inconceivable that a Republican effort to recall a Democratic governor would have to call national headquarters more than once before the dough started rolling in….

According to the Wisconsin Dem, the party has asked the DNC for $500,000 to help with its massive field operation. While the DNC has made generally supportive noises, the money has not been forthcoming, the official says — with less than a month until the June 5th recall election. The DNC did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Foot, meet bullet.

  1. Now the Wis Dems know how candidates within the state feel when they don’t get the support they need from the state party. Ask Lori Compas, or any candidate that has EVER run in a red district. We need this recall to be successful for 2 reasons. First is Scott Walker needs to go. Second is so the DNC can promote Mike Tate to something other than state chair, and we can replace him with someone who will help all candidates in all districts.

  2. While the DNC is filled with stupid people it looks like even they make a wise decision now and then and know that Walker is going to get re-elected.

    1. Wow, that must have really hurt… In order to criticize me, you had to praise the DNC. That just validates my opinion of both you and the DNC. Thanks!

  3. Dante, Dante, Dante. . .

    Dante, knuckles dragging, mouth breathing, wrote: “While the DNC is filled with stupid people [sic] it looks like even they make a wise decision now and then [sic] and know that Walker is going to get re-elected.”

    Dante, you were SO close to making a cogent point, and then you decided to open with, “While the DNC is filled with stupid people. . .”

    Your point would still have been wrong-headed, but at least you would have sounded like an adult for once.

    Close, but no cigar, my misguided [and generally inarticulate/incoherent] wingnut brother.

    Anyway, Dante, enjoy your wingnut wet dreams about Walker prevailing in the recall election while you can.

    Let’s talk things over on June 6th, huh? Well, assuming you’ve stopped crying by then, of course.

  4. I’ll let Shakespeare chide the DNC:

    “You blocks! You stones! You senseless things!”
