Daily Kos's Darling Getting Whipped

I wonder how the Kos Kids are feeling about the latest Quinnipiac poll, which shows Joe Lieberman wiping the floor with Lowell Weicker in the primaries? Right now Lieberman leads 63-21%.

Do you remember a few months back, when Joe made the ultimate mistake according to the Moonbat wing of his party, he supported the President? Kos and a number of the "netroots" of the new Deanian Democratic Party started screaming for his head, and started the movement to draft Weicker to run against him.

Well, they are getting what they wished for, in a candidate at least. It looks like the results may not be what they are wanting though. In fact, the results may just be devastating to the new party.

If the big party donors start seeing the liberal candidates being pushed by Dean & Co. getting beaten this bad in 2006, it will be tough for them to justify big checks for more of the same in 2008. They've already watched the party slide down continually since 2000, and at some point will figure out it's going the wrong way.

If that happens you can expect to see the leftovers from Clinton's DLC start filling more and more leadership positions in the party. In fact, I'd be willing to wager that if the Democrats don't have at least one house for the next congress Howard Dean will be gone by December 1st.

Maybe the problem is that the Dems really don't know what they want, as that hasn't really been their focus lately. Too much just say no every time Bush opens his mouth? I'd take it all more seriously if with all their kvetching came some viable solutions.

I hope they keep it up.....not one seems to have a clue...In my opinion that is good for us...As long as Americans see Dean and followers...the votes and offices will remain with the Republicans.

Hatred is the focus, ideas, and plan...with nothing in between.

I must go back to Roy Roger's famous line (back when the Democrats were a real American party). "I belong to no organized American party, I am a Democrat."

I think the Democrats are actually a coalition of small parties who still trying to figure out how to please everyone, even when they want the opposite things. Dean represents just one of them, yet seems to speak for all of them.

Perhaps the party is simply so Schizoid that nothing can be done for it

I think shoprat has hit the nail on the head. There are definitely a lot of instances where the party's parts don't see eye to eye, and the loudest mouth gets to run the show.

In the late 60's it was the hippies, 70's & 80's it was big labor. In the 90's the (semi)centrists took over, and now in the new millenium the 60's Hippies are back

Have you noticed that the Democrats really don't know what they believe?
Really - the Republicans are against abortion, against gun control, for tax cuts, for smaller government...
The libs are caught between "values"(that most of them truly believe in) that might have been popular 20 years ago, and a populace becoming more and more opposed to them. They then end up arguing against themselves. When was the last time a Democrat uttered the words "I'm for abortion rights" or "I'm for gun control"?

I don't know Bob, you are expecting them to be rational and have common sense. I haven't seem them act like that in a long while.

And if by some miracle they do wake up and smell the coffee it will be interesting to see what kind of 3rd party Michael Moore and Co. will start.

CP,

If you're right that failure to gain control of the senate or the house spells the end of Dean then Dean is gone. In the senate it will likely be a wash between seats gained and lost (at most a +/- 1). In the house there are just not enough seats actually in play to change control. Redistricting in many states has created an incredible advantage for incumbents.
