Democratic Voters Deserve Leaders With Fire In Their Bellies

What is wrong with the Democratic leadership? First, I read that Nancy Pelosi is all over Rep. Pete Stark for saying in public what a lot of folks all over the county say in private every day. If you haven't heard during the SCHIP debate Pete Stark, who has been in Congress for 18 terms, told the Republicans

"You don't have money to fund the war or children, but you're going to spend it to blow up innocent people if we can get enough kids to grow old enough for you to send to Iraq to get their heads blown off for the president's amusement."
Sure the comments were inflammatory, but damn it, it is time to call a spade a spade. If Republicans get their little feelings hurt, too damn bad. It is about the only thing they have had hurt since the President launched his little Iraq adventure. When is Nancy going to pull her head out of her designer frock and start standing up for Democrats.

Now I read Yellow Dog's excellent post about Harry Reid's decision to poop all over Chris Dodd just because Dodd wants to protect the Constitution of the United States. Harry you either agree the Constitution is the bed rock of America or you are right there with George W. Bush who is reported to have said the Constitution is “just a goddamned piece of paper.”

I don't know about you, but I am long past sick to death with fraidy cats like Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. Damn it, the Democratic party deserves leaders who are trying to win, not wimps who are trying not to lose.

Nancy, Harry, if you are going to be leaders, sometimes you have to be a little inflammatory, and sometimes you have to stand up for the Constitution, fat cat telecos be damned.
