The Absurd Radicals

I finally managed to get time to check out AETN: Unconventional Wisdom
Thanks Bullwhiz

Guests on the show were Republican Chairman Gibert Baker and Democrat Chairman Jason Willett. I found it interesting that Jason tried to lump the top three spots on the Republican ticket as radical right wingers. He particularly attacked Jim Holt, calling him an absurd, radical right winger. I find this really strange coming from a Chairman of a party whose main base is the looney left. This party has even started to attack their own moderate politicians.
We're talking about a primary here, not controlled by the vascillating sheeple in the middle but by activists like you and me. I don't see most Dems getting too excited about interrupting their day to go out and vote in a primary for Jo-mentum. I do, however see a lot of excited grass roots Dems ready to volunteer or contribute to someone who makes sense and is not the kind of opportunist tool of the Bush administration that Joe Lieberman certainly is.

If there is a movement for Joe (I've predicted before) it will come from Republicans injecting themselves into this race, somehow. He is their new Zell Miller, the Democratic MVP! As for me and the people I know, we'll be checking our voting status, changing from unafilliated (if necessary) and voting for Ned Lamont (by absentee preferably). Jimdish25

How about the some of quest speakers at the wacky kook convention being held in Las Vegas. These speakers are the Democrat leaders: Howard Dean, Harry Reid, Barbara Boxer, Nancy Pelosi and Wesley Clark.

Jason, before you start slinging terms like "radical and extreme" around, you'd better look at your own party. To quote from a person whom you'd like to stay out of politics "Why do you look at the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?"
