How far is too far?

I find myself wondering that quite a bit, mostly in reference to cowardly and unprincipled Democrats, willing to abandon their beliefs in order to compromise with Republicans.

The most obvious example of this came last year during the primary campaign I wondered how organized labor would even speak to a candidate whose chief strategist was a union buster. If you're a labor union and you don't make a stand against union-busting, then where the fuck do you draw the line?

Last night Joe Lieberman spoke in prime time at the Republican convention, praising the Republican candidate for president, and attacking the Democratic nominee.

What the fuck else does he have to do to be stripped of his chairmanship?! Leaving him as a committee chair has real world consequences. For all of the talk of Gustav and New Orleans in the news, HE IS THE REASON THERE HAVE BEEN NO INVESTIGATIONS ON THE GOVERNMENT RESPONSE TO HURRICANE KATRINA!

Your current Democratic leadership.
