Oh brother...the DUmmies aren't going to be kind to this Dem...
And you know what? The Far Left kooks on Huff, KOS, and DU will keep it right up. Just look at DU over the last week or so. As I knew it would be, it's filled with hate filled stories on how the country isn't "Progressive" enough for them and how they hate this country. The American dream is gone, an illusion.By William M. Daley

The announcement by Alabama Rep. Parker Griffith that he is switching to the Republican Party is just the latest warning sign that the Democratic Party -- my lifelong political home -- has a critical decision to make: Either we plot a more moderate, centrist course or risk electoral disaster not just in the upcoming midterms but in many elections to come.
Rep. Griffith's decision makes him the fifth centrist Democrat to either switch parties or announce plans to retire rather than stand for reelection in 2010. These announcements are a sharp reversal from the progress the Democratic Party made starting in 2006 and continuing in 2008, when it reestablished itself as the nation's majority party for the first time in more than a decade. That success happened for one major reason: Democrats made inroads in geographies and constituencies that had trended Republican since the 1960s. In these two elections, a majority of independents and a sizable number of moderate Republicans joined the traditional Democratic base to sweep Democrats to commanding majorities in Congress and to bring Barack Obama to the White House.
But now they face a grim political fate. On the one hand, centrist Democrats are being vilified by left-wing bloggers, pundits and partisan news outlets for not being sufficiently liberal, "true" Democrats. On the other, Republicans are pounding them for their association with a party that seems to be advancing an agenda far to the left of most voters.
The political dangers of this situation could not be clearer.
All Politicians would do well to do some reading on Huff Post, KOS, and DU. You want to stay away from these idiots like the plague in real life. Other than that, soak them for their money and then laugh at them when you don't deliver on your far lefty promises. :D
