A Principled Stand On Alito (The DLC opposes a filibuster)
Democrat Leadership Counsel ^

Posted on 01/29/2006 2:27:33 PM PST by Pukin Dog

I’ve spent no time on Free Republic today, because I’ve been monitoring my favorite nut-job sites to see whether or not they were actually going to go ahead with their incredibly stupid plans to attempt a filibuster against the Senate Confirmation of Judge Alito.

I’m telling you folks, if you ever wanted to see Liberal madness in action, just pop on over to one of these Democrat web sites. But I warn you, please do so before eating if you don’t want to risk tossing your cookies.

What you will join me in witnessing, is the inward implosion of the Left, brought to you by the Flipper-in-Chief, John Kerry. Never has one man’s ego done so much for his enemies, as what John Kerry does for us this week. Thanks to Kerry, every one if his potential fellow contenders for the Presidential nomination in 2008 are being forced to follow him over the same cliff and support this doomed effort, just to maintain their standing with the wacko-left.

What this tells me, is that Congressional Democrats are so bereft of ideas, while at the same time so hard-up for campaign dollars, that they can be led around by the nose by the likes of those who fill the pages at Daily Kos and other wacko-left hangouts. This weekend, the wacko left said “JUMP”, and Senate Democrats said “How High, baby?”

The calls (threats) have gone out wide and far, first it was Di-Fi, who claimed she would not support a filibuster. But when the wacko’s got her fax number and reminded her that her special brand of “well formed arguments” would no longer be funded if she did not flip. She flipped so hard, I hear she is still dizzy from the G forces.

After now, serious discussion with ‘Old Crusty’, it appears that Senator Clinton saw the light, and will also be joining the filibuster fray. This has now opened the gates for the rest of the lemmings, ready to fly over that cliff to the rocks below. Feingold, Biden, and Obama too. All ready to make that leap into Senatorial oblivion, just so the rabid left wont say mean things about them, or worse yet, through their support (dollars) to Howard Dean, Wesley Clark, or the formally-sane Albert Gore.

Imagine the beating these brave Senators would receive from The Screamer or the Perfumed Prince during the primary season about their failure to fight hard enough against Alito. Oh, the rapture! After Alito is confirmed to the bench, there will be nothing left but the sound and fury against Senators who failed, and even more anger against Senators who stood back and let Alito gain the bench.

And now, sensing this massive calamity that the wacko-left has forced upon the Democrats, the DLC (you know, that group that managed to get the only Democrat President elected in the last 25 years) has come out against the filibuster. The only group of Democrats that understands that crazy people don’t win elections no matter how much support they get, has decided that this filibuster will only hurt the Democrats and their chances in November.

Here is a snipped of their article:

But we stress this last point: in the Senate debate on this confirmation, Democrats should focus on Alito's judicial philosophy, and discard the personal attacks that figure so prominently in some of the interest-group campaigning against his confirmation. Such attacks at best distract from the principled case against Alito; at worst, they undermine it.

For the same reason and others, we do not think Senate Democrats should try to filibuster this confirmation. A filibuster is certain to fail; indeed, the Senate is certain to respond to a filibuster by outlawing them permanently in judicial confirmations. Using this weapon now would stake Democrats to the implausible argument that Alito's inevitable confirmation is the most egregious act of the Bush administration and the Republican Senate, going into a critical midterm election.

Gee, it would seem that some Democrats want to take a ‘principled stand, win or lose. You can only imagine the grief they are receiving today from the wacko-left factions who have not won an important election on their own, (that is by campaigning as Liberals) since………………Sorry, I’m not old enough to remember! I thought of the Liberal McGovern, who campaigned as a liberal, he got smashed. So Jimmuh Carter ran as a southern moderate, and apparently had enough discipline to hold that lie until gaining the White House, whereupon Roselyn must have found the happy pills and took them herself, leaving Jimmuh nothing on which to appear decisive accept the Olympics.

It appears that the Democrats have not learned their lesson, which is why I am still predicting that we will pick up seats in both the House and Senate. John Kerry is indeed the gift that keeps on giving. Here’s hoping that he, Gore, Dean and maybe Chuck Hagel, (who is rumored to be about to vote against Alito for the attention it will get him) can all get together for a whistle-stop tour through the United States, just like those Circus freak shows of old.

So, if you are a Broncos fan, steel…. Oops I mean STILL feeling down over last week, cheer up and visit a few Democrat sites today, and watch as the war goes down. They are tearing each other apart! They are so angry with each other, they haven’t even noticed yet how Howard Dean blew up Harry Reid today on Fox.

Abramoff THIS, you idiot liberals!

Oh how I love the smell of burning Liberals in the morning. If you agree, be tuned in for the big explosion tomorrow, when Alito ruins their whole day. Even the most profound of idiots might decide to take stock, and try to figure out why someone that they think is so dumb, so incompetent as our President, can manage to kick their liberal asses up and down the block any time he wants too.

Oh, I know, it’s because he is spying on them! Right?

So when is the dirt about Alito you predicated last week coming out?

And are the Democrats still planning on boycotting the State of the Union?

Interesting. Yeah, it seems that since the libs are unable to beat the president and other Republicans, they've decided to direct their fire at easier targets -- at each other.

Well Howlin, we don't know whether the nuclear option will be necessary at the moment, do we? As for new information, it comes daily. Nothing has taken hold yet in the media, but that doesn't mean they are not trying. Maybe the media is aware of how Democrats are looking these days and not so eager to help them? Lets just see what happens.

I have to disagree with this rule. I say give them extra arsenic, more rope, and extra bullets and razor blades.

I've been saying for days that this is all about fund-raising. Now it appears that whatever funds they could count on were about to be cut off if they did not go through with this move. Maybe Soros is inflicting punishment on them, and wants to see the current lot replaced?

Well, I'm over at DU stirring them up to filibuster. Not that you have to stir much. They have no conception of minimizing their losses, working in a bipartisan manner, or any other reasonable action or plan in their pathetic political situation.

That's the reason the DHimmicRATic Party will be gone in 10 years.

How can a national party with tens of millions of members be controlled by Left wing idiot bloggers? They are controlled by the DUmmies, Daily KOS, the Nation, moveon.org, people whose political IQ is less than that of a five years old child. They are controlled by people who are only driven by a terrifying hate toward President Bush and the Republicans. It is just horrifying what can hate do to people, and they wonder why they cannot win elections.

Yes. Look at what happens when Bush or Frist does something similar. 8000 posts appear reading "I'm never sending money to the RNC ever again... blah, blah, blah".

They are a party with relatively no money. Republicans are KILLING them in fund-raising. You think some granola-munching-left-wing hippee can through big dollars their way? So they have to literally do what they are told, or risk losing dollars from the few (Soros) that they can depend on.

Lets say I was a wacky liberal: Would I be putting aside money to give to Democrats, or would I be buying weed?

Do you think that the democrats saved anything they can damage Alito with till tomorrow? Why they did not do this for the last three month including two weeks of committee hearings and Senate floor debate? Of course they spread dirty lies about Alito tonight or tomorrow and the media can jump on it but it will have zero effect on the final vote. Alito will be confirmed on Tuesday.

Well, I finally took a look over at DU.
Really bunch of dim bulbs.

I stopped reading when a poster said he wanted someone smarter than him to lead. He was referencing Kerry. Said he knew his vote for Kerry would be vindicated, talking about the filibuster threat.

Chesley, was that you prodding them? LOL

Now, I'm torn about what to call Kerry and Liberal Contingent's latest fund raising gambit. A few I've seen are:

"Fizzlebuster" or

"Fizzlebluster" or

"Fizzledbluster" - past tense -
