So, can someone tell me again, why we shouldn’t tax the rich, and instead, balance the budget on the backs of everyone else?…….

I seem to be missing that little detail where that all makes sense……

Tonight, a small progressive enclave dissolved when their charismatic leader stepped down… Well… not exactly did it completely dissolve like a Fizzie in a glass of ice water… but there were several explosions that cracked and chipped a couple of ice cubes.

The details like all minutiae are trifling and will not matter years from now… just little “he said”, “she said” stuff…

Most reading this have already heard the details…

So I (as usual) will address the big issue….

They’ve run out of steam…. When started, the Progressive Democrats under it’s previous leader harbored some closet Republicans who considered themselves far-thinking. You can’t really call them Republicans since “far thinking” and Republicans can never be grouped in the same category. ( Those Republicans are now Democrats, btw.) But that was just the kind of organization it was… They were the modern equivalent of the Grangers.

The problem with progressives… they were too successful…

For heavens sakes. They guy we’ve all shaken hands with, IS VICE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.

And to top it off: THE PRESIDENT IS PART BLACK! I thought it’d be another hundred years, based on Jesse Jackson’s performance of yesteryear…. but no… it’s happening now. How progressive is that?

The US Senate is 59 to 41 for the good of America.. The House is 257 to 158 for the good of America. This is not a dream. The American people spoke and it is happening now.

The Delaware Senate is stacked 15 to 6 for the good of Delawareans no matter what their financial income.. The Delaware House is stacked 24 to 17 for the betterment of all Delawareans… This is not make believe; this is reality folks…

There is only one Republican holding statewide office… only one… and he barely held on against a name that no one can remember, despite the fact that no one seriously challenged him….

Progressives… You rocked… Rebecca.. With results like that: you’re a legend. Howard Dean would be proud….

So….]

What Progressives are suffering from is championship fever… We gave everything, took out every Republican we set our sites on, and got the prize… We’ve been in a daze ever since… Starting next Thursday, games begin for real.. No more preseason fluff… The only thing that matters is the final score…

Will Progressives return to the fight like last seasons Steelers? That is the fate of almost every champion…. Rare, are the ones who achieve a second year… The Giants, the Patriots are two that come to mind… Every person caring for the continued improvement of America, must get the lethargy out of their system if they want to me more than a one hit wonder…

We need fired up…

It would be nice if we showed America that WE REMEMBER! We remember what Republicans did to destroy this once great nation. We remember the greatness of the Clinton years, when every income strata benefited and grew richer financially. THAT is real progress… not taking from one strata and giving to another… but using the tool progressives have in better supply than anyone else… brainpower… and creating livable solutions that benefit the whole of society; not just the family of a refrigerated trucking firm.

It would be nice if we showed them how much Delaware resents Republicans… that no matter how nice of a guy they put up… whether his name is Castle, Bonini, or Wagner, they can’t win BECAUSE THEY ARE A REPUBLICAN…. Yes, that is a legacy worth fighting for… That is a worthy going-away-thank-you gift for Rebecca…

So let’s do this.
