The Democratic Circular Firing Squad Gathers Again

We're idiots. I know I'm not helping the cause by saying so, but we're idiots.

It amazes me how Democrats are so fast to attack other Democrats - pointing fingers and blaming Kerry for every damned thing that went wrong - while America burns.

So there's a $15 million surplus in the Kerry campaign. Now the leadership in the Democratic party wants Kerry's head. What the frick? Kerry handled the finances himself? Kerry bought the TV time himself? Kerry oversaw all the spending himself? Kerry had his campaign set aside $15 million for no reason? Let me answer that for you. No, No, No and No.

All these accusations have been made without hearing a peep from Kerry. And at some blogs, several have chosen character assassination (see the comments).

Nobody gives more ammo to the Republicans than Democrats. The GOP has been flouting the law eighty-fold. America is in a hellhole. And THIS is what the Democrats are focusing on? THIS is what they're outraged over?

You will never - and I do mean NEVER - hear anything like this coming from the GOP about themselves. We have a lot to hate about the Republicans, but dammit, we have a lot to learn from them too.

Instead - we find a problem within our ranks, and we drag it out for the world to enjoy. Nice strategy. Not like the wingnuts won't use THAT against us down the road. Sometimes, you just gotta keep your damned trap shut until (and I know this is a wacky concept) you get an explanation.

We better get our act together, folks. This is nonsense. Screaming bloody murder at Kerry for the Democrats' defeat just doesn't cut it for me.
Democrats Question Kerry's Campaign Funds

Democratic Party leaders said Wednesday they want to know why Sen. John Kerry ended his presidential campaign with more than $15 million in the bank, money that could have helped Democratic candidates across the country.

Some said he will be pressured to give the money to Democratic campaign committees rather than save it for a potential White House bid in 2008.

"Democrats are questioning why he sat on so much money that could have helped him defeat George Bush or helped down-ballot races, many of which could have gone our way with a few more million dollars," said Donna Brazile, campaign manager for Al Gore's 2000 presidential race.

Brazile is a member of the 400-plus member Democratic National Committee, which meets early next year to pick a new party chairman.
May I be excused? I need to vomit.
