Dear Nancy & Harry

The Judas goat is not an example of the sort of leadership people are looking for from Democrats. You might want to consider that before you cave in again to the Shrubbery.

Just trying to be helpful as you seem a little confused.

So… slightly paraphrasing the wiki, Nancy and Harry are “used to find fe[de]ral goats that are targeted for eradication”?

More and more people are talking about a third party because of this crap.

In my childhood, I was taught in the classroom that third parties inevitably are absorbed into one of the two major parties when a sufficient number of voters hold their policy positions. I just don’t see that happening today. The D’s and R’s may summarily crush smaller parties, but they don’t incorporate their ideas.

That said… until the cowardice of the Democratic leadership is overcome by the outrage of rank-and-file D’s, I cannot contribute either money or work to the DP or its candidates. (There may be exceptions on the local level.) The YDD’s new policy is this: show me the spine if you want me to show you the money. I will not willingly be led to my own political demise.

I just don’t understand their logic. If people didn’t want change, why in hell was there such a reversal of political fortune? Don;t they understand that they are going to be blame no matter what they do, so they may as well do what they know is right.
