Another Succinct Recap

Recap of the last half-decade or so, found in a comment by chibi at Interesting Times:
1998: Clinton Impeachment - Starr gets blank check to dig and dig and dig until he comes up with a blowjob. And for this an Impeachment trial is cooked up. Who was Clinton's best defender? Congressional Dems? Terry McAuliff? No. MoveOn.

2000: Al Gore tries to distance himself from Bill Clinton and goes so far to pick as his running mate a sanctimonious, self-righteous twit deep in the pockets of the accounting industry. And when Nader gets 5% of the vote, many Dems blame the loss on him, refusing to look into the mirror or listen to what the mood of their constituency is.

2002: The Iraq resolution. Congressional Dems think they can be "reasonable" by giving the president his war and that they can make the economy the main issue of the election. Not surprisingly, many progressive voters stay home, disgusted. With no Nader to blame, they claim it's not really all that bad.

2003: Howard Dean gets up on the stage and says "What the hell is wrong with you losers?" I say Amen, brother.
