The Stark Reality

By Libby

I don't know how it could be any more clear that the Democratic 'leadership' has sold us out lock, stock and barrel. Pete Stark avoided censure, but was forced to apologize anyway. I have to admit my first reaction was anger that he had caved in to the GOP bullying but then I read this update from Jane Hamsher. A reader reports:

I called Stark’s office in DC to complain about his apology. The person answering the phone told me that Stark had no choice; Stark was told before the vote was taken that should he not apologize, the vote to censure would pass. According to his office, that is the only reason he apologized.

Stark's emotional apology was admirably gracious. But I'm with Jane. I find a Democratic machine that would not only allow, but require, such humilation to one its own deeply offensive. If we're ever going to save the Democratic from itself, we have got to get rid of these people.

Its such as you learn my thoughts! You appear to know so much about this,
such as you wrote the ebook in it or something. I think that you just could do
with a few percent to power the message house a little bit, but instead of that, that
is excellent blog.
A great read. I will certainly be back.
