She's not a Democratic Party spokesperson.

Okay; got past my revulsion at her starting out with lies. I've recently sent virtually the same sentiment to the DCCC.

It's clear that other forms of organization are required. More, larger protests and more, stronger unions, just for starters.

Voting is just one tool in the box. We need to use others as well.

Democrats are bereft of strategy, and never go on offense. Abortion rights was their 3rd-rail, absolute mountain to die fighting for...and they've lost it.

Because they don't value competence, or have a killer/warrior instinct. They've ticked every box, but are left with an army of incompetents and committee-builders, with nary a strategist or leader in sight. But at least the incompetence is diverse and inclusive.

The problems in this country are too farking serious to read bullshiat like this.  fark McSweeneys!  Your whatever the fark you are sucks cock!  In fact.......go fark yourself and stop telling me your satire.  You ain't the Onion.  Got damn you "imma writer" chuckle heads.

mofa: She's not a Democratic Party spokesperson.


She might as well be. Their strategy of "let's avoid hurting the feelings of fascists" hasn't worked for the last 20 years. The republican party position is a straight-up nightmare and the democratic strategy of constantly appeasing them in the hopes that they'll eventually evolve into decent human beings passed the point of parody a long time ago. TFA might as well be a documentary now, because it sure isn't satire.

The problem is that most people hate what you're selling.  They didn't vote for Biden to get a Sanders/Warren presidency. They don't want government-mandated racial segregation.  They don't want wasteful spending boondogles that devalue our currency.

Fact is, you're bemoaning that a democracy prevents Democrats winning via a pretense at moderation in order to force through a radical agenda. Which will be followed by a democratic midterm reversal. Because you lied, but you can't execute a power grab. You can't be a Chavez or Ortega.

I mean, I share the frustration and anger. It does feel a bit pointless. But doing things in this country requires a majority in the Senate and Democrats don't really have that thanks to the combined single-digit IQs of Synema and Manchin.

No one is "appeasing the Republicans" just because (except for Manchin, I suppose). They have to work with them because the voters keep giving them a seat at the table.

2021-12-03 7:20:38 AM  
Got it, okay. So you're wondering what the point of supporting any of these candidates was if the minute they had any power to circumvent the worst possible outcomes by, for instance, abolishing the filibuster, granting D.C. statehood, and/or adding a couple of non-knuckleheads to the Supreme Court...

Found the problem. Looks like there were some people telling lies when they told the author they voted. If we all voted Democratic maybe we'd be able to see if any of those things were possible because the people we elected might be in a position of power to do something about that. Until then we'll just have to settle for shiatposting on fark about Nancy Pelosi while we read wank pieces written by 19 year olds from McSweeney's.

The first and largest priority for a democratic candidate is to win an election. Once he gets elected, then his largest priority is to help his fellow democrats win elections. Dems who do these things really effectively are "leaders." The triangulated program of milquetoast centrist appeasement and localized center-right pandering is called "strategy."
