The Weakest Threat Ever
"Dispirited" is the new "primarying." Balk the Left, Obot Left, Pwogman!, all the fauxgressive kewl kids are using it passive-aggressive style to describe how the "left" wing of demotard party will feel in 2010 if they don't get their cheap plastic Public Option(tm) toy from daddy this year. You can predict with 100% accuracy how the DP elite would react (if they knew, that is.)
Of course, you, me and everyone we know are fully aware that the Solomont-Clark-Barzun crowd don't give a fart in a high wind whether the pwoggie proles are "dispirited" or "joyous" or "gassy" or "martinized" or whatever when they vote. The self-neutering pwogwessives will obediently troop out to the polls and hit the 'Thank you sir may I have another kick in the crotch' lever no matter what "their" party does and the Advertise Liberally crowd will do their damnedest to make sure they do exactly that, lest the lose their seat at Nutroots Nation next year.
But everyone knows all that. My concern is - if the pwogs insist on making empty threats, couldn't they at least put a little 'oomph' behind it? That whole 'primarying' thing was bullshit, but at least it had a sort of plausibility about it. (If you ignore the 95% incumbent re-election rate, the DNC financial deathgrip on almost all of the state parties and several laws of physics.) But, really, is threatening to be "dispirited" the best they can do now? On the scale of empty threats, that rates right up there with an invasion by Micronesia or a Partridge Family reunion tour.
What are you gonna do next, pwog? Bleed on them?
(Update: One of the NewsPwoggers has cast down the gauntlet! He claims he won't personally vote for any D that votes against their useless plastic crap toy. Cheapass lesser-evilism at it's finest, ladies and germs.)
