Wiring the Vast Left-Wing Conspiracy [Or: The on-going demise of the Dem Party]

Wiring the Vast Left-Wing Conspiracy talks about how the Democrats are basically screwed in the long run since they have not strategy or vision. So a bunch of rich people are funding organizations outside the Democratic party such as that run racy ads attacking Bush. My two cents: I don't think this is the way to go. Democrats stooping to the same low level as the Republicans is not going to do the country any good. What they need to do is to raise the level of the debate. If that means losing the election, so be it. In the long run the Republicans will lose as long as Bush is in charge (see 'More on Bush and GOP below').

It is no longer about taxes or the Iraqi war or abortion. The Bush administration is challenging the very institutions of Democracy that keep the US (and hence the world) free.

Exhibit A: The Constitution envisions that Congress provide a 'check' on executive powers. Contrast that with House Majority leader Tom DeLay's definition of his job:
How do I advance the president's agenda?
