Long time passing

One writer says “Rest in Peace.” A more appropriate salute is “Good Riddance to Bad Rubbish.”

Once upon a time not long ago there was an organization called the Democratic Leadership Council (the DLC). They marketed themselves as “new” Democrats and gave us a much-less-than-Democrat in the form of President Bill Clinton. Out of this organization’s influence came the acronym “DINO,” Democrat in Name Only.

They are saying “bye bye” as an organization for financial reasons, but they have left a deep footprint that will need a very strong tide to erase. Make no mistake, their adherents still exist (usually referred to as “blue dogs”) and are now making genuine Democrats wonder if even the “D” in DINO is relevant.

Read Robert Borosage’s “DLC RIP” and ask yourself, “Where have all the [Democrats] gone?” Long time passing. When will we ever learn? When will we ever learn?
