Dems Better Start Showing Results

I mean, come on... the republicans are the party of crooks and liars, corruption and contempt for our constitution. How hard can it be to make an issue of that? We bloggers do it, every day! But the rightwing-lapdog media ignore that and turn a blind eye to it. And the democrats are proving themselves to be little more than lapdogs of the right themselves, enablers of those who are drunk with power. Well, there's an editorial on Buzzflash (the news source), describing how the dems better shape up or they can piss off. Progressives are tired of waiting for them to become the progressive alternative to the republican corporate oligarchy. Either the democrats catch up, or they are history, and a new alternative party will emerge.

I think the democrats have already lost their credibility as a barrier to right wing hegemony. It is too bad that they have so willingly capitulated to the right.
If there needsa to be a new progressive party then so be it. I for one still think independents are the key- i.e. non-party Americans who want to make a difference.

Thanks for posting this, Shea.
By the comments left on the post that I put up about this I don't think there were many people who read it.

How's this sound for a replacement party for the do-nothing Dems, the Progressive Populist Party.

If that doesn't have the correct...I'm tired of using the word right for anything other then the wingnuts...where was I, oh yeh, correct ring to it, maybe we can put our heads together and come up with a better one.

I guess the time has come. If the 2000 theft of the presidential election was not enough to inspire the democratic party to something to oppose the corrupt fascist plutocracy of the republicans, not to mention years of hell that followed, then I suppose they are hopeless.
