The Discreet Spinelessness Of the DLC
Even as people such as Democratic National Committee Chair Howard Dean, Republican Senator from Nebraska Chuck Hagel and Democratic Senator from Wisconsin Russ Feingold are all saying that we need to get the hell out of Iraq ASAP, and even as a previously-unknown Democratic congressional candidate running on a "get the hell out of Iraq ASAP" message damn near beat his Republican "stay the course" opponent in Ohio's reddest district, the chickenshit chickenhawks over at the Democratic Leadership Council -- which still is deeply in bed with the media and the Beltway power structure -- are trying to (and worse yet, succeeding in) convincing most leading Democrats that they mustn't dare speak up about Iraq. Armando over at Kos dissects this attitude much better than I can.
