A terrible sort of insanity has gripped the Democratic Party. On almost a daily basis, when you see the party’s leaders in action, you want to start edging toward the door, murmuring “Nice doggie. Nice doggie.” Today it was Howard Dean (filmed a week ago, but seen on YouTube today). He was addressing a Democratic crowd in Colorado, and went off on a tirade against Republicans. Yes, he really did say that Republicans aren’t American. And that they should stay away from the United States, and go to Russia where they belong. One gets the feeling that if the Democrats ever have the opportunity, they will have us all arrested. Or deported:
This is a very bad thing. We need two functional political parties, and these days the Democrats don’t get over the bar, no matter how low you set it. Their rants are so crazy that it is hard to tell what they are talking about. Dean says that Republicans want to “take away the right to vote.” Huh? Can you name a single Republican who has ever argued that anyone who has a right to vote should have it taken away? I have never heard such an argument made. Republicans do say that ONLY those who have a right to vote should be casting ballots, and that no one should vote more than once. Apparently Dean disagrees with these propositions, but of course he doesn’t tell us why. It is always easier to lie.
Meanwhile, in Washington, D.C., Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi went ahead tonight with their screening of “Koch Brothers Exposed,” a false and malicious attack on Charles and David Koch which we wrote about here and elsewhere. Reid and Pelosi are so low-rent that you feel embarrassed for them whenever you see them. Screening a video that is sheer partisan libel in the United States Capitol–illegally, as best I can tell–is right up their alley.
However, the event was a dismal failure. Our sources tell us that only around 40 people attended, mostly Democratic staffers and reporters. That is a pathetic turnout; apparently Reid and Pelosi couldn’t even get fellow Democrats in the House and Senate to show up, nor did Greenwald’s rich leftist financiers turn out. As for normal citizens, forget it.
Maybe normal people who are not hard-core Democrats are turned off by insanity. I don’t know; I guess we will find out in November.
