Nutbucketfest 2007

Rich Galen tells us 'bout Nutbucketfest 2007, aka YearlyKos:

"Consider what would have happened if Republican candidates blew off a meeting with a moderate Republican organization to attend the 'Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy Nuts Convention' in, say, San Diego or Charleston.

"Can you imagine how the Popular Press would have vilified the GOP candidates? It would have interviewed every single attendee and found something which would have shown him or her to be (a) a lunatic, (b) a hypocrite, (c) an embarrassment, or (d) all of the above.

"The Democratic candidates for President all refused to attend a meeting of the moderate Democratic Leadership Council (of which Bill Clinton was a charter member) but, went out of their way to attend a convention of the most acidly Liberal group of Bloggers in American all of whom are either (a) lunatics, (b) hypocrites, (c) embarrassments, or (d) all of the above. ...

"[T]he Democratic candidates for President bowed, scraped, pandered, and supplicated themselves before a bunch of people who think Democratic Members of the House who voted in favor of the bill to allow surveillance of suspected terrorists as 'Dems who ... failed us. Who failed our country.'

"One Senator who voted for the bill, Ken Salazar (D-CO) was vilified by a Kos Blogger thus:

"Senate (sic) Salazar was the first dem I ever voted for that WON. I was so happy! I did my part! And he's a freaking Liebercrat surrender monkey.

"These are the people with whom the Democratic candidates for President are not only willing to align themselves, but from whom they are actively seeking support."
