A Scary Day for Democrats...

...and it's not just the little kids wearing costumes. From the Washington Times:

Former Prince George's County Executive Wayne K. Curry and five fellow black Democrats on the county council excoriated their party yesterday and endorsed Lt. Gov. Michael S. Steele, a Republican, for U.S. Senate.

"The [Democratic] Party acts as though when they want our opinion, they'll give it to us. It's not going to be like that anymore," said Mr. Curry, who in 1994 became the county's first black executive and remains influential in the mostly black and heavily Democratic county.

Mr. Curry and the lawmakers said Democratic leaders repeatedly have snubbed the black community and their county, noting the lack of party support for the Senate campaign of former National Association for the Advancement of Colored People chief Kweisi Mfume, who lost the Democratic primary to Rep. Benjamin L. Cardin.

Well, I can't say I'm sorry Kweisi Mfume didn't win the primary, but I understand where Curry is coming from. The Democrats expect black voters to feel honored by their patronage without bothering to find out what they really want.

Stronger words come from Samuel H. Dean:

"We were in the Democratic Party while they were lynching black folks. We were in the Democratic Party while they were segregating folks," Mr. Dean said. "We have been loyal Democrats, [but] when the party has an opportunity to do something to show that their base is recognized, appreciated and acknowledged, they don't."

Steny Hoyer and others declined comment. Not surprising. What can they say?

The race between Democrat Ben Cardin and Steele is already neck and neck. Look for Steele to surge ahead in this last week before the election.

SPEAKING OF the election, please read this piece by Gaius over at Blue Crab Boulevard if you've even been thinking about sitting out this election cycle.

Good for them!

I think we can expect more and more of this. Once the ice has been broken, then the deluge is next!

I have repeatedly said - why should we vote for any Democrat when since 2000 they have basically called the Bush voter a moron? Endlessly. Viciously. Mindlessly.
