Oy, these Democrats...

You know, I've never been totally happy with the Democratic Party. Well, that's actually a huge understatement - see my below post about my own personal political evolution. Anyway, I don't think anyone really is totally happy with the Democratic Party.

This week has really pissed me off. And I'm pissed at someone I never thought I'd be pissed at (at whom I never thought I'd be pissed?) - Howard Dean. The DNC is threatening to take Florida's delegates away from the DNC convention because Florida had the audacity to move its primary up. This is such a petty, unnecessary, bullshit squabble. Let the Floridians vote when they want to. If we're really going to make the Presidential election and primary cycle a state by state process, then let the states do what they may. Otherwise, let's just have a national damned primary, all on one day. This party infighting only brings more negative light on the Democratic Party, and in a state that is, oh, I don't know, REALLY, REALLY IMPORTANT to the election. The DNC should just back the hell off.

In other news, John Edwards is kind of a jackass. In extremely calculated comments last week, he attacked Clinton and Obama without naming them. Then, he went on TV and denied that he had been aiming his attacks at them. But when he goes spouting off about the Lincoln Bedroom, then who the hell else is he attacking?

That, along with other things that have just pissed me off about all of the Democrats in the field, is the reason that Sinister, is now, officially, UNDECIDED about the Democratic primary. I hereby rescind any kind of endorsement I may have once had for John Edwards, including the bumper sticker on my car. I will vote for the guy if he is nominated, which looks even more doubtful every day, but I don't think he's worth fighting for in the primary.

The only candidate with ideas I really like is Dennis Kucinich, and he's Mickey Mouse.

Maybe I'll vote third party again. Who knows. Bloomberg looks attractive. Hell, I'll support almost any Jew for President, unless he's Joe Lieberman.

In a related story, Rudy Giuliani is out of his frikkin' mind.
