Mischief in Michigan. Democrat for a Day. If it’s okay for “Democrats” like Markos Moulitsas and Barack Obama to play those of kind of screwy political games, it’s okay for you to too. There may be several reasons to vote for John McCain, but the most significant is that it’s the most effective way to use your leverage this year. In short, it forces the neoprogressives to replace the loss of your vote with two new Democratic votes. Since they are all about the numbers game and strategies revolving around that, we should be too. As I’ve said many times, the neoprogs must lose this year before their ideologies and campaign styles are given any more authority.
But this plan has another upside: If McCain wins, people like Markos Moulitsas will be laughing stocks–permanently. And wouldn’t it be ironic if Markos’ jacking with the primary in Michigan came back to bite him on the ass when McCain wins in November? It would demonstrate not only his political impotence, but also his intellectual impotence. And let’s face it, Kos’ tiny penis is rarely erect. That’s why he has to shoot of at the mouth so often, and so recklessly. Well, that and all that frustration from being gay and being married to a woman (I feel for her, poor girl). Don’t tell me your gaydar doesn’t go off every time you hear his voice or see him walk onto a TV set. I mean: Come. On.
Anyway, you’re frustrated, and you’re scared, as well you should be. Dangerous not-Democrats are afoot in our Party. They can drive us out, or we can drive them out. I plan to drive them out and stake out some independent ground while I’m at it. I mean, we should at least be as politically savvy as the so-called Evangelical Center, don’t you think? You saw what happened when neoconservatives took over the Republican Party–don’t let the Democratic Party mirror that experience. Let’s take this opportunity to beat them all at their own games. Because John McCain is no neoconservative–he’s old school, pre-neocon, and, in another ironic twist, he could just help you take back your Party this year.
