Same Mission, Updated Slogan
Old VichyDems slogan:
Patriotic Democrats, Doggedly Resisting the Vichys, DINOs, Triangulators and Accommodationists. Starting with Joe Lieberman, of course.
Updated VichyDems slogan:
Patriotic Democrats, Doggedly Resisting the Vichys, DINOs, Triangulators and Accommodationists. Dogging Joe Lieberman Until He's Festering in His Political Grave, of course.
OK, Franklin's "Join or Die" it's not, but I like it, because, of course, JoeNoMentum's independent run -- while just a craven clinging to power and a setup for future office as a Republican on his part -- could spoil Lamont's chances of actually being elected, and conceivably could even have legs, and makes George Bush and Tony Snow all giggly even when they're not in the back of Air Force 1 orange-bowling and huffing nitrous oxide with the traveling press corps, and so we won't quit dogging the s.o.b. until he throws in the towel for good.
Other than that, the focus now will be on
(a) getting all Democrats elected in the midterms, even if they're Vichy, because the only thing better than Russ Feingold and John Conyers in Congress in Russ Feingold and John Conyers in Congress with subpoena power; and even more than that (since zillions of bloggers and the DNC, DLC, DCCC, DSCC, MoveOn, and zillions of better bloggers than me already are working on that)
(b) 2008, meaning:
i. reforming the Democratic primaries to ban DCCC and DSCC aid to Democratic incumbents when they're faced with good-faith challengers in the primaries;
ii. finding new progressive challengers to attack the Vichy incumbents we re-elect this year out of necessity;
iii. driving a stake through the heart of every DLC-associated Presidential candidate, starting with Hillary Clinton; and then
iv. electing whichever Democrat wins the Presidential primary (unless, of course, Lieberman's unholy corpse gnaws its way through the dirt back to moonlight and runs again for President, in which case I'll vote for Jeb Bush first!)
Sound like a good slogan from now till November? And a good plan from now until Nov. 2008?
