    I’m not saying delivering HOPE AND CHANGE. I’m saying PROMISING it. I’m saying that overwhelmingly in this country, the People want change from a government by and for the 1%, and when a politician comes on the scene telling it like the People want it, saying what the People are feeling, the People do show up to vote for that politician. More voters came out to vote for Barack Obama than any other politician in U.S. elections ever, believing him to be either the populist candidate, FDR reincarnated, who would drive the right-wing controlled Republican Party politicians into the dust-bin of American history, or (at least) the LOTE.

    Know what else drives turnout?

    Politicians who promise HOPE AND CHANGE.

    It delivers record turnouts.

    Where’s Michael Whouley these days?

    Ron Klain: We should have asked for a statewide from the get-go – that was our biggest mistake.

    Michael Whouley: Mm-hmm, and Ralph Nader should’ve pulled his head out of his ass. And Elian Gonzalez should’ve never left Miami. And Gore should’ve campaigned with Clinton. And Clinton should’ve got caught getting a blowjob from Sharon Stone instead of Monica Lewinsky ’cause then his approval ratings would have shot through the roof. And Katherine Harris should’ve thought twice about purging 20,000 voters from the rolls. And George Bush, Jr. should have never quit drinking, but he did. It is what it is, pal. Four years from now we’ll come back, gather our information and go right back at ‘em.

    Ron Klain: Even after all the mistakes and all the corruption, we still had about half a day there where the entire state was counting.

    Michael Whouley: Mn-hmm, and do you think if W had asked for a recount, the Supreme Court would have stopped it?

    Michael Whouley: Now it’s time to prove to Al Gore who the real Ron fucking Klain really is. It’s time to show Al Gore that Ron Klain is a fucking brawler and he’s not going to back down from this particular fucking fight.

    Ron Klain: Anyone ever tell you you say “fuck” a lot?

    Ron Klain: How hard is it to punch a paper ballot?

    Michael Whouley: It’s pretty God damn hard when you’re eighty something years old, you’re arthritic, and you’re blind as a fucking bat. Unfortunately for us, blind fucking bats tend to vote Democratic.

  • Why does anyone believe that Democrats want to win control of Congress? Have Democrats been doing what’s necessary to fight, beat Republicans?

    If Democrats were to take control of both Houses in Congress, what or who could they possibly blame for failing to deliver on the People’s interests?

    The career track of an American politician depends on his or her switchbacking between government posts and private industry. Deregulating, sucking shared, natural resources dry for the private gain of a few. Both parties.

    So how do you fix it?

    From “Everything I Need To Know In Life, I Learned From The Godfather Movies”:

    [About the unrest in Cuba]

    Michael Corleone: I saw a strange thing today. Some rebels were being arrested. One of them pulled the pin on a grenade. He took himself and the captain of the command with him. Now, soldiers are paid to fight; the rebels aren’t.

    Hyman Roth: What does that tell you?

    Michael Corleone: They could win.

    Dear Jane,

    I’ve been dealing with health issues, hence my lack of writing at (but not lack of reading) FDL. I’d hate to lose my ‘voice’ here when I return to the community full time.

    Leave it to the GOP, their one jobs’ program is recruiting white women with Downs’ syndrome children to run for office.
