Vichy Democrats

While officially neutral in the war, it was essentially a Nazi puppet state that collaborated with the Nazis, including on the Nazis' racial policies.

Vichy Democrats has the lowdown on the cowardly bastards that voted for cloture on the Alito nomination.

I say "cowardly" because what kind of politician is afraid to challenge a President with an approval rating in the 30s? For crying out loud, did Gingrich EVER roll over for Bill Clinton, whose popularity ratings at the nadir of his career cream those of Mr. Bush? Just yesterday I read in the Washington Post that Democrats are preferred by the majority of the public for 2006: what kind of politician cavils before a party mired in scandal, war, and economic blight?

This man has had enough.

All of you deserve our thanks, some of it conditional:

Harry Reid: you need to step down as minority leader and give the job to someone more effective. Boxer would be a decent choice.
Dick Durbin: You fucking sissypants diaper. You need to resign, IMMEDIATELY. As whip, it's your job to get your democrats in line: I have no love for Tom DeLay, but the man was an effective fucking whip.
Barack Obama and Joe Biden and Diane Feinstein: You undermined filibuster momentum. You have to learn when to shut up. You're not some fucking rock stars, you're public servants. If you had Reid's back or Kerry's back, that could have made a major difference. But NOOOOOO, you had to shoot off your fucking selfish ego-ass mouths. Biden: give it up. You're not going o be President.

And now for the rest. These are the names and the faces of the people who sold you out on Alito. These are the Democracts who put reproductive rights in the hands of Sam Alito; who put civil rights in the hands of Sam Alito; who were too scared to stand up to George Bush the failure. Click on their faces to go to their websites (or in many cases the websites of their challengers). FUCK YOU you fucking traitorous Vichy collaborators. NOT. ONE. DIME.

Hey, thanks for the plug for VichyDems!

If you really want to pressure Senators you cannot do this directly. What do you have to presure them directly? Vote against them every 6 years? haha

Instead organize a boycott against the companies that fund Republican oficeholders.

Do you want to increase the minimum wage?
Write your senators and representative and demand they increase the minimum wage.


Do you want to scrap the current meager Medicare Part D discount and replace it with 80 percent medication coverage under Medicare Part B?

Write your senators and representative.


Next time you fax, email or call a senator or representative, include this in with your demand:

Until the legislation or action I demand gets done I will boycott products from Republican contributors Walmart, Wendy’s, Outback Steak House, Dominos Pizza, Red Lobster, Olive Garden, Eckerd, CVS and Walgreens, Curves for women health clubs, GE and Exxon/Mobil.

Hold Republican contributors accountable for their officeholders opposition to progress.

Oh man, this is what we need to get energized. I have been all over the blogspere since Friday and it's good to see that other people are just as pissed off as I am. We need to stay on top of things and make sure the dems in congress remember that they represent us!! We have to keep the pressure on.
Thank You Brendan, thank you, thank you.
