Sock it to Them, Molly!

Julie Christensen of Stone Cupid Real has reminded us of just what a national treasure Molly Ivins is. In an article that was published in this month's issue of The Progressive, Molly takes on our weak willed Democrats for their failure to lead, their failure of nerve, and their failure to take on the good fight and win public opinion away from a party that has shown failure after failure.

The Democratic response is the watch the Republicans shoot themselves in the foot and hope that the voters vote them out. Sit back and watch. Oh, and in the mean time, let's not rock the boat by taking any stands. I agree with Molly whole heartedly when she calls our Democratic leaders "calculating, equivocating, triangulating, straddling, hair-splitting sons of bitches."

This is, she notes, "not a time for a candidate who will offend no one; it is a time for a candidate who takes clear stands and kicks ass."

I don't know where that man or woman is, but I hope he or she shows up in time.
