You might be wondering what this blog is all about. By the name, you might think I’m some Democratic Party shill, doling out the latest talking points. In actuality, it is the opposite. From the How This Site Started link above:
I wrote to the DNC about Rush Limbaugh a while back after they went on the attack against him. Subsequently, I went on their mailing list and began receiving emails from them a couple times a week. The letters are usually attributed to (though, probably not written by) various names in the Democrat party–Pelosi, Carville, Albright, Vogel, etc. This blog puts those emails out there for all to see, and I’ll comment on the many fallacious arguments they make regarding conservatives and the Republican party. I’ll tell you right now, half of the arguments they make are straw man and ad hominem.
Virtually all the emails I have received thus far devolve into begging for funds after attacking their opposition in a way that is thin on facts and heavy on playing to fears and stereotypes. Where are those funds going? Fancy names like Emergency Health Care Rapid Response Fund are used to mask how the money will be used. Anyone with half a brain can figure out that the “Response” fund is all about advertising and marketing whatever legislation they are too afraid to give the American people the whole truth about.
That’s pretty much it in a nutshell. No special comments in this blog besides what is directly (or sometimes indirectly) mentioned in the “dispatches” I receive from various mechanisms of the Democratic Party. If you know of any more sources, I’d be glad to hear about them. And skewer where appropriate. And (I know this is a longshot) applaud where appropriate.
