Democratic party attempts image transformation

Posted by: ST on January 7, 2007 at 11:31 am

Newly crowned House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is in the midst of an image makeover. Considering what district she represents, I guess she doesn’t want people to find out just how deeply committed to far left policies she really is. The image of the big bad wolf dressed as grandma in the Little Red Riding Hood story is, for some strange reason popping into my head right about now. I wonder why.

Along those same lines, the NYT has an article published today about “Alpha Male Democrats” which talks about the “carefully cultivated” images of some of the Democratic men recently elected to serve in Congress as part of the new majority. With the left bragging about these so-called “Macho Dems,” we see yet another instance of the Democratic party not really wanting you to see what they as a party are truly all about. I guess we’re supposed to believe that because a few newly elected moderate male Dems who look stronger on national security than the party as a whole does means that the Democratic party’s dismal record on war on terror related issues doesn’t exist or should be swept under the rug. Think again, Dems.

    You might want to see the satire I did on this:
    Don’t Tell Me the Democrats Have a Macho Problem

    You also have to see my first commenter’s first sentence — but put down your drink first.

    The Democrats didn’t really “win,” the Republicans threw the election away, stomped on it, then were run out of town.

    The man behind the curtain is being exposed. Already the strong on defense, won’t raise taxes, not liberal democrats have 1, proposed cutting and running from Iraq, 2, eliminated the supermajority to raise taxes to prepare for tax increases, 3 proposed funding for fetal stem cell research. I wonder if buyers remorse has set in yet.

    True, but will Republicans have the courage to hold Democrats accountable? The last election showed that while you cannot beat Something with Nothing, the Nothing-with-a-whole-lotta-MSM-spin can still beat the Nothing-that-hides-from-its-own-shadow.

    It’s funny that they showed Rahm Emanuel at a podium like the one Cindy Sheehan and her code-pinkoes chased him away from and took control of.

    Brings a clearer meaning to “My grandma, what big eyes you have!”

    Can we start calling her arrogant? Or do we have to wait for something else? Her name calling could start catching up with her someday ya know…
