No matter what you think of Barney Frank, he doesn’t fuck around. As Obama’s pragmatism gets more and more infuriating (he continues to talk anti-DOMA while defending DOMA in the courts), Barney let’s loose 24/7. As the Democratic majority caves, as it always does, to the rabid ‘lican loudmouths, Barney speaks like…well, like an American.
How many Democrats, the president included, have the balls to stand before their constituents and tell them they are crazy? Why does it take a member of one of the most shit-upon minorities to tell the plain truth – wingnuts are completely fucking insane? Where is candidate Obama full of hope and fire? Where the HELL did “yes, we can” go?
I want to see a Democratic party with some balls. I don’t want President Merkin Muffley blathering on about how “it’s nice to be nice”. I’m sick of watching Democrats cowering before the big, fat, drug-fueled insults of Rush Limb-tard. Republicans disgraced themselves under the bush administration. That’s why we have a majority. PLEASE FUCKING USE IT. That’s why you got elected, not to waffle and simper and apologize. Show some fucking spine.
We need to stop being nice. We need to stop leaving Democratic criticism to the pundits and insist that our representatives to stand up and tell the ‘licans very bluntly to go fuck themselves. We won. You lost. Shut up and sit down.
Ohhhh, I know, it’s not very “liberal” to do that. We need to use “facts” and really get people on board. We can change their minds. It’s soooo much more productive to work cooperatively than rudely ram things through. That’s what the other side does.
Yup. Now it’s our turn. The way things are going we’ll lose the House and Senate in 2010. It’s time for us to throw caution to the winds and rightfully demonize ‘licans with the same intensity and focus that they demonize us. Blue dogs Democrats? Fuck ’em. There is NO FUCKING REASON that we cannot get 100% cooperation during votes the way ‘licans do.
It is well past time for a come-to-Jesus meeting. If Obama doesn’t call it and preach the fire and brimstone he did on the campaign trail then he deserves to be a one-term president.
Don’t piss this away folks. Let’s learn from Barney Frank. We’re here. We’re Democrats. Get used to it.
