16. That is one of the best DU posts ever.

Thanks again.

Just want to emphasize this sentence fragment below, because it is such a dark, major milestone in the long, slow Democratic Party demise, a point that many Democrats don't seem to be aware of these days:

"we need look no further than 1968: the establishment made vice president Hubert Humphrey the nominee, despite his not running in a single primary."


I pretty much agree with everything you wrote in your post, but differ in that I firmly believe that we have already come to a similar place in our relationship to the Democratic party to the place that Jefferson spoke of when describing the irreparable, destructive relationship of the Colonies to the Crown:

"when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government." ~ The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America


So many Tories; so little time.

Little [strike]Debbie[/strike] Lucy plots to trick the kind, but dangerously gullible, Charlie Brown yet again.
