Happy Friday to all! It’s that time of the week again! Do you have an interesting post you want to share with everyone? The official Surrender Monkey of the Democratic Party says to do what the Lefties don’t, since they all have the same talking points: link it!
The Surrender Monkey is bored. What with Congress out of session and the silly season of primaries starting, the Democrats just aren’t doing anything of consequence lately. No surrender in Iraq talk, no ill advised meetings with terrorist nation leaders, no releasing of classified material. All he is left with is the winners of Iowa. Yes, one of them recently called for complete surrender in Iraq, but, that was not anything new. The NY Times gives it a go, though (ht Michelle M)
We don’t question the enthusiasm or the commitment of the people of Iowa and New Hampshire. But Iowa, where a huge turnout amounts to less than 10 percent of the population, is about 92 percent white, more rural and older than the rest of the nation. New Hampshire has a non-Hispanic white population of about 95 percent…
In case the Times missed it, Surrendie would like to remind them that Obama ( a black guy) beat two white women, John Edwards and Hillary Clinton (though there is some question whether Hillary is a woman.) Perhaps the Times would prefer that New York goes first, where it is only 73% white. Or perhaps Vermont, where DNC chairman and initial 2004 favorite Howard Dean is from. It’s only 95.7% non-hispanic white.
However, Surrendie is slightly bolstered by the fact that the Grey Lady does surrender to what those right wingnut pundits have been saying
Senator Obama generates enormous excitement with his youth, and his promises of change — even if it’s not entirely clear what he intends to change or how. Senator Clinton, meanwhile, wavers between wanting to be seen as ready to serve as president because of her eight years in the White House with her husband — and trying to satisfy voters’ yearnings for new ideas and new ways.
Mr. Edwards has a strong populist message, but it sounds a bit odd coming from a former tort lawyer and hedge fund executive who ran as a completely different person in 2004. One of his ads features an out-of-work Maytag employee who said Mr. Edwards promised his 7-year-old son: “I’m going to keep fighting for your daddy’s job.” We’re still waiting for Mr. Edwards to explain how he, or any politician, can turn back the tide of economics and globalization. We’d prefer if he explained how to make it work for all Americans.
Going to be some nasty letters written to the times by liberals, which will be mostly the same, as they use those talking points generators.
Surrendie now demands that Democrats get back to appeasing terrorists and calling for surrender in Iraq.
