Le Vomit

Molly Ivins is pissed. Everyone else should be too:

Mah fellow progressives, now is the time for all good men and women to come to the aid of the party. I don’t know about you, but I have had it with the D.C. Democrats, had it with the DLC Democrats, had it with every calculating, equivocating, triangulating, straddling, hair-splitting son of a bitch up there, and that includes Hillary Rodham Clinton. Take “unpatriotic” and shove it. How dare they do this to our country? “Unpatriotic”? These people have ruined the American military! Not to mention the economy, the middle class, and our reputation in the world. Everything they touch turns to dirt, including Medicare prescription drugs and hurricane relief. We can raise our own money on the Internet, and we know it. Howard Dean raised $42 million, largely on the web, with a late start when he was running for President, and that ain’t chicken feed. If we double it, it gives us the lock on the nomination. So let’s go find a good candidate early and organize the shit out of our side.

Down with fake Texans in '06!!
Kos posted a current list of Senators voting for censure:

Daniel Akaka Max Baucus Byron Dorgan Dick Durbin Dianne Feinstein Daniel Inouye Jim Jeffords Ted Kennedy John Kerry Herb Kohl Mary Landrieu Carl Levin Joe Lieberman Blanche Lincoln Barbara Mikulski Patty Murray Jack Reed Harry Reid Jay Rockefeller Chuck Schumer Ron Wyden

Actually, this is an old list of Senators that voted to censure Bill Clinton, because getting a blowjob is much worse than the Commander in Chief admitting he broke the law. Granted, there are all kinds of explanation and time-sensitive nuances to take into consideration, but it's still a clear indicator of the party's current misguided priorities. Democrats have to stand up and be willing to take a few punches and lose a couple of battles, even at the risk of looking weak. The news cycle ends eventually. By dominating the discussion and framing the issue, the GOP always wins. Always. And finally, in an attempt to further its reputation of sheer irrelevance, the New York Post published a late Valentine to Kate Moss's ex boyfriend, Pete Doherty, the frontman for Babyshambles and the former co-frontman for The Libertines. *yawn*

His most frequent accessories include a porkpie hat, safety pins, a lit cigarette and open sores oozing from his nose and ears - yet for a certain segment of downtown New York, he is the man other men most want to look like.

"He's an old-school romantic rock star, a rebel, and the more drugs he takes, the better he tends to look," says NME deputy editor Alex Needham...

Isn't heroin chic like soooooooooo over? Porkpie hats and safety pins?!! How very.
Fuckin' sick. I hope he dies and gets buried with the editors of the NY Post.
