When the McGovern faction took over - they were at least still idealistic and believed in their policies and ideology. They don't believe in anything anymore than pure power.

Piling on here...

I look at the New Deal coalition (updated of course), upon which Democratic power is based, as inevitably decaying as well. What platform can possibly satisfy outspoken gays, blue-collar workers, African-Americans, Latino immigrants, radical feminists, and limosine liberals? Kick out a single one of those groups and national power is gone for them. Yet the interests of those groups are in frequent conflict. And any balancing act eventually fails.

YES! And therein lies the paradox of the Dems. They seek to unite all these divergent groups into one party that seeks one law and standard of morality for the entire nation under the dictat of a liberal Supreme Court! Meanwhile - The GOP and Conservatives are more often than not to live and let live from one town, to country, to state, and are willing to accept many standards of morality at the local level outside of Federal control.

Yep. Unlike the smarmy college-set stereotype (and even that is a dated view, since smarminess itself is aging), federalism is the conservative ace-in-the-hole. To quote esteemed statesman and international man-of-mystery, Austin Powers, "It's freedom, baby! It's a very groovy bag."

One could write a whole political treatisie on "Austin Powers." I quoted Dr. Evil the other day when someone had made a particularly ridiculous assertion as to Sadaam's threat level to us and his "power":

"Is to much to ask to have a shark tank with friggin lazer beams strapped their heads!"

Goyette is the most boring guy on KFYI, hands down. He has nothing on "Frick and Frack," as he calls Austin Hill and Tom Liddy for an evening drive-time program.

I tuned in to Charles "Yob" Goyette last night, he started off by asking why his ears were itching, suggesting that the only reason he was there was because his key still worked.

He then said he wasn't going to talk about the article.

Then, after listening to him talk about the article for another 5 minutes, it became clear that he wasn't on the air with the purpose of entertaining an audience, that's for sure.

He started making fun of his critics, and then criticizing them for daring to criticizing him.

Charles is just a boring talk show host, trying to ignite some listenership.
