Punk'd

When I was in college we had a name for spineless punks who would not stand up for themselves - a name that I cannot repeat in polite company. Suffice it to say that it can be abbreviated as P.A.N. - the last word being the derogatory form of the word Negro, the first two words being body parts. I am reminded of this back-in-the-day term by the recent apology from Senator Dick Durbin.

Why in the world do Democrats feel the need to apologize for telling the truth, especially when there hasn't been any apology from Bush about lying to get us into Iraq? When the Republicans have no qualms about comparing Democrats to Nazis? When Rep. John N. Hostettler (R-Ind.) has no qualms about accusing Democrats of "denigrating and demonizing Christians" on the floor of the House? When Dick Cheney had no problem saying that voting for Kerry would bring about more terrorist attacks? When Mississippi Senator Thad Cochran vehemently refuses to apologize for the Senate's role in lynching? WTF?

I swear, if I hear about more of these P.A.N.'s in the Democratic Party punking out I'm going to have to run for office and take the wood to the Republican Party myself. I'm sick of it. Is there anyone left who has not been castrated by the GOP? Is there anyone left who is not afraid of the GOP? Is there anyone left with a spine in the Democratic Party?



Damn!

It's time for a David to step up and put Goliath flat on his fat arse. Who's man enough to do it?

To which candidates should we pay attention? How did TLC put it? No Scrubs? Who's down for the cause and thorough enough to keep from being punked?

Hey Oscar,

I came away from DemocracyFest this weekend thinking that we should be in the mode of helping people in local communities do the things needed to help the candidates that THEY choose, helping them set up things like house- and community-based programs for volunteer development and fundraising.

Through the DFA grassroots, we have access to many worthwhile and actionable causes, as well as tools and services, that already exist.

Perhaps we can serve our communities by putting these relationships into use.
