Now this is just funny
Posted by: McQ on Friday, December 10, 2004

I can't help it, I just think it is. The Democrat party is bought and paid for ... now the owner wants it delivered:

Liberal powerhouse MoveOn has a message for the "professional election losers" who run the Democratic Party: "We bought it, we own it, we're going to take it back."

In a scathing e-mail from the head of MoveOn's political action committee to the group's supporters on Thursday targets outgoing Democratic National Committee chairman Terry McAuliffe as a tool of corporate donors who alienated both traditional and progressive Democrats.

"For years, the party has been led by elite Washington insiders who are closer to corporate lobbyists than they are to the Democratic base," said the e-mail from MoveOn PAC's Eli Pariser. "But we can't afford four more years of leadership by a consulting class of professional election losers."

Under McAuliffe's leadership, the message said, the party coddled the same corporate donors that fund Republicans to bring in money at the expense of vision and integrity.

"In the last year, grass-roots contributors like us gave more than $300 million to the Kerry campaign and the DNC, and proved that the party doesn't need corporate cash to be competitive," the message continued. "Now it's our party: we bought it, we own it, and we're going to take it back."
Well, you have to admire their honesty.

So Orlando, this weekend, is going to be one interesting little party. Howard Dean, call your answering service.

Now if we could only get the DU wing to sign on with MoveOn they could have a hell of a parade at Disney.

The irony is that Moveon.org and the left touts Moveon's "grass roots" fundraising on the Internet. Many on the left repeat the lie that most of Moveon's money has come small individual donations from regualr Americans.

Check out the 527 PAC Watchdog site, www.OpenSecrets.org.

Take a look at the entire IRS itemized list of Moveon's donors.

Almost ten million dollars came from a handful of wealthy donors, including Soros ($2,601,000), Peter Lewis of Progressive Corp. ($2,500,000) , Herbert Sandler of World Saving and Loan ($2,505,014), Steven Bing of Shangri La Entertainment ($971,777), Jeff & Jeanne Levy-Hinte of Antidote Films ($251,000), Jared Polis of JPS/Pro Flowers ($200,000), Lewis Cullman of Cullman Foundation ($100,000), and Richard Foos of Shout Factory ($100,000) - for a total of $9,328,791.

All of the rest of the donors combined, including retirees, homemakers, attorneys etc. combined for a total of $2,330,183. George Soros alone donated more than all of the small donations combined at $2,601,000.

$9,328, 791 from a few weatlhy donors versus $2,330, 183 from small donations.

heh. Looks like mostly 8 wealthy donors bought and paid for the DNC......

Wow ... good stuff Dave. It is going to be one interesting weekend in Orlando for the DNC. Any bets as to how far left they finally move?

They're going to move so far left they're going to make Hillary look like Jerry Falwell in comparison. Then she can embrace the role of the party maverick that restores sanity to the party just in time to win the nomination in '08..... lol

I'm only halfway joking.

If anything, this kind of info should easily expose the lie that one party (the GOP) is for the rich and the DNC is for the "working man." They're both "for the rich" and the "working man" blue collar constituents are nothing but useful idiots for the cause.

McCain/Feingold sure has worked out well, hasn't it? Instead of millions of soft money donated to the DNC, it's now donated to "unafilliated" 527 groups.

I'll say this though, at least with the 527s, we do have access to the donor info like that found at OpenSecrets.org.

I personally hope that they frog-march themselves leftward off of the cliff.

Not really. One needs a good example of what political corruption looks like in Chicago and the Texas Rio Grande Valley courtesy of the Democrat Party.

I don't think we'll be seeing them at Disney... there's a dress code in effect there.

So the message is, essentially, "We're amateurs, but we can engineer even more devastating losses than you professionals"?

Regardless of one's opinion of Senator Clinton's politics, it is too bad, in a way, that she looms so large in the Democrat presidential nomination in 2008. If she didn't, a viable strategy might be for the adults in the Democrat party to step away and let the Petulant Left have its choice of nominees...and then, when they lose the election by twenty-five points and are thoroughly discredited, to step back in and pick up the pieces for 2012.
