The left has lost its mind today

Like many conservatives today I've been surfing through the evening talk shows to see the left's reaction to the stunning defeat of their candidate. I can only conclude one thing; these people have gone mad. I'm not trying to exagerate, these people are just plain loopy! Go ahead and turn on the TV and look for these people. Juan Williams, a normally cool headed lefty, started flipping out on Bill O'Reilly about how the media was too harsh on Kerry! But the main talking point from the left tonight was the need for Bush to move to the left for his presidency to be legitimate.

Just like they did after their 2002 trouncing, the liberal "talking heads" have all concluded that the Democratic party hasnt gone far enough to the left, and that Republicans need to "reach out" (ie: ignore their mandate and serve as though they were Democrats). In 2002 these ideas seemed a little bit out there, but not crazy. Now, after getting another whooping in the House and Senate, how can these people be taken seriously when they repeat the same tripe?

The Democratic party is in total shambles. If the grown-ups in the party -- yes, they do exist -- don't grab their fringe by the ear and drag them back to the center of the political spectrum, this party will never recover from this loss. Amusing as it is to watch the left lose their minds, it is still disconcerting. The two party system is essential to assuring a check on corrupted power in this country, and we need the Democratic party to rebuild themselves into their former image so they can serve this role.


  • You probably already knew this, but, at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa, Juan Williams is considered an ultraconservative rightwinger. He would have to be one, UH reasons, to commit the unspeakable sin of giving Republicans tips on how to win the black vote.

  • I read an article about a group of liberals who went out to protest today in Oregon. Here is a quote from one of them . . .

    "You may have won the White House, you may have won the House, you may have won the Senate, but we're still here."

    You have to love that!
