Dday has unintentionally provided yet another argument as to why liberals in general should leave the Democratic Party for the Green Party and why PUMA liberals thinking of a spite vote for McCain should also consider the Greens:
If you’re looking for accountability, it’s highly unlikely that you’ll get it from either potential incoming Administration. Cass Sunstein’s interview on Democracy Now put an end to any hopes of that, rejecting prosecution for “non-egregious” crimes that would amount to the criminalization of politics. Anyway, the Military Commissions Act effectively nullified any opportunity for War Crimes Act prosecutions domestically. And since the conservative movement goes apeshit at just the hint of accusing these guys of what they’ve admitted to doing, there’s little chance any Democrat will have the stomach for following through. [Links subtracted.]
So even though the Dems have a Congressional majority now, even though Bush is currently the most unpopular “president” in American history, even though a veto-proof majority is expected for the Dems this Fall and a possible Obama administration might be arriving at the same time, even these current and potential factors aren’t enough for the Democratic Party to do the right thing.
And liberals are supposed to stick with the Dems anyway while they aid and abet the most corrupt group to ever occupy the White House? Give me a fucking break.
