Say Somethin’ Else Smart to Me!

Unlike many of her rivals for the Democratic nomination for president, Hillary refuses to say her clear support for the Iraq invasion was a mistake:
“It is a gnawing, painful sore,” she said of Iraq. “People are beside themselves with frustration, and I understand that completely. We are trying in the Senate to set forth a strategy that has the best hope of getting the president’s attention.”
Mark Penn, Mrs. Clinton’s chief strategist, said in an interview: “It’s important for all Democrats to keep the word ‘mistake’ firmly on the Republicans and on President Bush. Senator Clinton has been very clear that we, as a party, should keep the focus on Bush — these were his mistakes. Ultimately that’s very important, not just for her, but for the entire Democratic party.”
So, talk about Bush, but not Iraq.  Who else doesn't want to talk about Iraq?  Guess.
We heard this same crap from Emanuel and Schumer in the runup to '06, before Ned opened a can of whupass on the party and changed the whole national conversation.
Hey, DC Dems:  this is not your party.  It's our party.  Our house.  We get out the vote, and our vote is not for sale.
Say somethin' else smart to me! 
(Update in response to a question:  That’s Tyler Perry as his character Madea in one of his stage plays. There were a couple of movies based on the plays, such as Madea’s Family Reunion. Funny stuff. )

Pachacutec did not, as is commonly believed, die in 1471. To escape the tragic sight of his successors screwing up the Inca Empire he’d built, he fled east into the Amazon rain forest, where he began chewing lots of funky roots to get higher than Hunter Thompson ever dared. Oddly, these roots gave him not only a killer buzz, but also prolonged his life beyond what any other mortal has known, excluding Novakula. Whatever his doubts of the utility of living long enough to see old friends pop up in museums as mummies, or witness the bizarrely compelling spectacle of Katherine Harris, he’s learned a thing or two along the way. For one thing, he’s learned the importance of not letting morons run a country, having watched the Inca Empire suffer many civil wars requiring the eventual ruler to gain support from the priests and the national military. He now works during fleeting sober moments to build a vibrant progressive movement sufficiently strong and sustainable to drive a pointed stake through the heart of American “conservatism” forever. He enjoys a gay marriage, classic jazz and roots for the New York Mets.
