December 09, 2004 to Dems: "We own it. We're taking it back.", the radical moonbat fringe of the Democratic Party who desperately wants to be in charge, is insisting on taking charge -- all while blaming the present Democratic establishment for the reelection of George W. Bush.

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 (news - web sites) 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."

"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."

They need to take their own advice: get over it and move on. Bush won. Period. They can come back and play in four years.

Geez, Michael, you need to have a contact email. :)

Wanted to point out Bill Cosby spoke yesterday in SF:

Kind of an interesting contrast to, which is located on the other side of the Bay. I'm not in favor of nuking the place, only because I'm downwind. :)

This press release has the painful feel of that scene in the Steve Martin movie "The Jerk", where he is broken and he is saying .. "all I need is this ashtray .. and this cup .. and this statue of ...".

Absolutely pathetic.

How about we let them have it ?

Funny, how does taking millions from foreign billionaires count as 'grass roots'.

LOL. I'm loving The Jerk analogy...
