Sister Toldjah reports on a post at Huffington Post (HuffPo) about what the liberals/Democrats are going to do when they lose in October (again). The poster attributes the predicted loss to the nefarious and devious conduct of the Republicans, led by the evil Karl Rove (George Bush is too dumb to accomplish an electoral victory). Well, first, the outcome of the election remains in doubt as we have a couple of weeks to go. The poster should be out working on getting out the vote and generally working to ensure her party does as well as it can do -- that's the way the system works. But, even more disturbing is the idea that when the Democrats fail to achieve their goal of winning over both houses is that "If for whatever reason we don’t win back Congress in November the only real answer will be to take to the streets."
Yup, that sure is a mature answer. These people are in serious denial and, more importantly, are unwilling to take responsibility for their failure to develop a political stance attractive enough to the American people to result in a victory at the polls. Rather than blame Karl Rove, how about going back and doing some hard thinking about what their party stands for and figuring out how they can win back the confidence of Americans? That process might force them to try to understand what we all want, which isn't the liberal agenda.
Riehl World View reports: "I had a conversation similar to the one below with a moderate Dem recently, one who has hated the Iraq war since the start. Without selling any ideology, at the end I simply asked them, so come November what is it you are going to do? I detest the war, they said. But the Democrats are going to raise my taxes and they don't even want us spying on these people who want to come here and kill us. I'll be voting Republican in November." Yes, when sane people get to the ballot box they will vote against the tax-and-spend left, and hope that we can get the Republicans back under control.
The New Editor reports that the author of the HuffPo post is the wife of Norman Lear, hardly someone who is scratching out a living each day on the minimum wage. She and Barbra Streisand can go out and lead a demonstration!
The reader may find it worthwhile to review Dr. Sanity's Psychology 101 posting discussing the various functional and not so functional ways of dealing with life's challenges.
