Democrats are Dead

Austin Bay has a great post shaming Democrat elitism in the recent Boxer vs Rice and Kennedy vs Gonzales embarrassments.

I don't think the Democrats understand what is happening (some Democrats do, but they do not control the party these days).

The NY Daily News’ Michael Goodwin neatly smacks Senator Barbara Boxer for her dreadful and inexecuseable attempt to impugn Condi Rice’s integrity. Goodwin also knocks Ted Kennedy’s slurs of Alberto Gonzales.

I’ll quote one sharp Goodwin line that captures the political/historical context: “Boxer and Kennedy are living in the past, back when it was okay for limousine liberals to tell the rest of us how to live.”

Boxer and Kennedy miss the ugliness and irony of their actions: two privileged upper-class millionaires trashing young Americans who made it on brains and bootstraps. This is a bitter decadence.

And, now we have the former KKK Senator from West Virginia leading the effort to stall the Condi's confirmation as Secretary of State.

A shameless and dead party, and as Michael Goodwin notes, a party with members who seem "to be going through a terminal meltdown."

By the way, as a conservative, this is not good for the country.
