Blue Dogs = Made Of Fail

September 23rd, 2008at 11:53pm Posted by Eli

Here’s a lovely little trip down memory lane, as Brendan reminds us that the Blue Dogs who are balking at bankruptcy reform now were totally on board with it in 2005.  Indeed, their default position on all matters financial is pretty much, “Whatever the corporations want.”

Are there, in fact, any issues that the Blue Dogs are with us on?  For the life of me, I just can’t think of any.  They’re pro-war, pro-business, pro-life, pro-warrantless-wiretapping, anti-healthcare, and anti-gay.  I’m pretty sure most of them are pro-torture and anti-environment, too.  Do they serve any positive purpose other than giving Democrats an ineffectual paper majority, or allowing Rahm to pretend he’s a genius for getting Republicans to run as Democrats?

I would be perfectly happy to see a bunch of them lose their seats this year, retaining just the bare minimum to maintain a Democratic majority.  I’m tempted to go beyond that, but I don’t want to see another president impeached for being a Democrat.
