Get a Clue

I had to laugh when I read this:
According to Barrons, there "has been a mutiny by West Coast donors" unhappy with the Democratic party's leadership, "and it may be spreading to other parts of the country."

"This fracturing of the Democratic Party is a piece of good luck for Republicans, who are low in the polls because of profligacy and scandal by their members in Congress and policy blunders in Iraq and at home by the Bush presidency. Unless it can coordinate with the upstarts, the DNC's funding disadvantage will mitigate against an electoral upset. Money is the mother's milk of campaigns and the GOP already has a significant cash advantage."

Markos disagrees: "Hogwash, it means funders are taking their money out of an ineffective establishment and building the institutions to challenge the VRWC [vast right wing conspiracy]. That's not a party divided -- that's a party re-prioritizing its spending."
Looks like Barrons has a Democratic establishment source for their story.

When are these guys, particularly the DLC, gonna get a clue. There are a lot of people in the Democratic party who are very unhappy about how our party has been run, how our money has been spent. Thanks to the internets, we can now directly spend our money as we please, eliminating the Bob Shum's of the world.

I agree about the internet. It has enabled grassroots support like nothing else ever has. I just got a mailer from Paul Hackett of Ohio yesterday. His website is listed and I'm going to make a contribution. Without the net, I would not have done it in the past. Without the net, I probably would not know who Paul Hackett is.
Not only the ability to contribute quickly, but the information that flows all around. I don't even get my news from tv anymore.
