#1 And this is why the Democrats will loose in 2006.

#2 In their topsy-turvy view, Hizbully is an underdog and no matter how rabid, they will be on its side.

Add the rampant anti-semitism that became an unquestioned lockstep fashion in LLL circles and you have Donks asking themselves after elections: "Where we went wrong? What can we do? We have to become more radical!"

#3 Even for the Democrats as they are today, Representative Kucinich is an outlier. I wouldn't hold the rest of the party responsible for his absurd or vicious maunderings, no more than I'd hold the Republicans responsible for the vacuous idiots who occupy their fringes. And when the rest of the party openly turns their backs on Kucinich, as the Republicans did to David Duke, then I will begin to hope that the Democrats have grown up enough to be taken seriously.

Aside: I heard a serious interview on NPR yesterday where the interviewee said actually said that the White House had managed to set things up such that we now have a one-party system in this country (hint -- not the Democrats), and that he forsaw this lasting at least several more election cycles.

#5 'Hezbollah is part of the elected government of Lebanon.'

And you're part of the elected government of the United States, so that don't mean shit...

#6 This isn't new for Mr. Kucinich. The following statement is on his website:

Kucinich Speaks Out as Tensions Escalate in Middle East
July 6, 2006

Congressman Kucinich issued the following statement this week on the current situation in the Middle East:

"The lack of proportionality of Israel's response to the kidnapping of the soldier compounds a human rights disaster which has been building in the Palestinian territories and could set the stage for reigniting a cycle of extreme violence.

"The world community, led by the United States and Israel, must see the humanitarian imperative of relieving the suffering of innocent people in Palestine who are without the most basic of human necessities such as food, water, electricity, health care, housing, and economic security, in part because they exercised their right to self determination.

"The Hamas government needs to ensure the safe return of Cpl. Shalit and renounce its previous statements calling for the destruction of Israel, and end attacks against innocent Israeli civilians.

"Likewise, the Israeli government needs to halt its incursion into Gaza, withdraw its troops, facilitate payments to Palestinian civil servants, and renew its commitment to a viable two state solution which will ensure the survival of both the Palestinian and Israeli people. Such a commitment can only come about from a common recognition of common humanity.

"The governments of Israel and Palestine should exercise caution and compassion in the name of joint security and peace in the region. Peace will not prevail unless both sides are willing to call a cease fire, stop provocations and make concessions for their joint security, ensuring peace through building enduring structures for social and economic justice.

"The United States, which has played a role in building tensions, can ameliorate them by pursuing peaceful diplomatic initiatives to end the cycle of violence. The world community is best served by helping warring factions step back from the brink of war and begin a new effort to achieve a lasting peace. The United States has the moral obligation to lead this effort."



If he has any say in American foreign policy the U.S. will cease to be an Israeli ally.

#7 I don't think most Dems know who the hell he is. He got a grand total of one delegate in 2004. I mean, hell, the Rev Al Sharpton got more than that.
