#rsrh The Blue Dogs’ death rattle?

If so, it’s not a moment too soon:

Two years after the 2010 midterm elections decimated their ranks, the coalition of conservative Democrats is poised to get pummeled again in November — moving the Blue Dogs dangerously close to extinction.

Of the 24 remaining Blue Dogs, five are not seeking reelection. More than a half-dozen others are facing treacherous contests in which their reelection hopes are in jeopardy.

It’s a rough time to occupy the right wing of the Democratic Party to be spineless lickspittles of the radical progressives and liberals that make up the current leadership of the Democratic Party.

Fixed it for Politico.

You will forgive me if I shed no tears for a rogues’ gallery of opportunistic politicians who signed off on the most disastrously radical expansions of state power in American history since the days of Woodrow Wilson*.  Actually, I don’t really care if you forgive me or not; I’m still going to sneer at these people, largely because they’ve earned every drop of karma that they’re suffering from and more.  I got kids who will have to pay off this debt that the Blue Dogs helped saddle us with; compared to that the problems of a handful of Congressmen who will have to start in on being lobbyists early are pretty small beer.

*That it failed back then is probably mostly due to what turned out to be Wilson’s extremely well-timed stroke in 1919. And if that assessment seems harsh, well, so was instituting segregation in federal government agencies.

    May the Blue Dogs join the list of extinct species! They should have gone on it a long time ago.

  • PubliusNV says:

    They are an endangered species, what with Obama eating dogs, like I said earlier on Twitter: http://is.gd/09FFlO

    Spot on as always Moe! The Dems are being exposed each and every day as a bunch of lunatric fringes. If my parents who’ve consistently voted Democrat in every election have committed to voting a straight Republican ticket this fall, you know that means something. Let’s hope enough people do the same against the Big O and send him packing. That will be a cause for celebration if R’s retain the House, get the Senate and the WH.

    And what’s the best way to celebrate? Playing as much Van Halen as possible, of course!!!!!

    Wow. They called their Southern constitutes racists:

    Former Louisiana Rep. Charlie Melancon, a onetime Blue Dog leader who lost a 2010 Senate race, said ongoing discomfort about Obama’s race in some corners of the South made it hard for Democrats running on the ballot with him. Blue Dogs running in the Midwest, Melancon predicted, would fare better.
    “I think in the South, it’s going to be quite difficult,” said Melancon, who recalled Republicans running a seemingly endless loop of TV ads attaching him to Obama. “If you get tied to the president, it’s more about race than the economy or other stuff.

    Democrats are really going toward this “Divide And Conquer” style campaign, no?

  • Jeff A says:

    Amen,Moe. The thing to remember about “conservative Democrats”, “pro-life Democrats”, “Blue Dog Democrats”, or any other kind of Democrats, is that they are always Democrats first. Anything else they believe is always subordinate to being a Democrat.

  • K M Scane says:

    Bart Stupak proved Jeff’s very true utterance 199%.
    Then, he just vanished.

    Wait .. there are still blue dogs? Are you sure those aren’t just rats dipped in blue dye?
