DNC Chairman Howard "Old Yellar" Dean is still out stumping for his party, throwing red meat to the loony Left that makes up its base. His new pitch? Dems need to take the offensive. As if he and and the other moonbats in the party haven't been offensive enough.

At a party fundraiser, Dean talked about needing a message and of being "out there" and being "vocal". Well, Chairman Dean is definitely "out there" and he's been nothing if not "vocal".

The problem for the Democrat leadership is that they just refuse to grasp the concept that the majority of Americans - the "mainstream" - don't agree with their half-baked ideas. They can't accept the fact that the reason they are no longer the majority is because they've marginalized themselves into Liberal and Uber-Liberal factions that can't even agree on what the party should stand for.

There are a bunch of pull-quotes in the article from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, but this one says it all: "We need to position ourselves as the party of change." The problem is that the primary change Democrats are focusing on is trying to remove George W. Bush from office before the end of his term. The kind of change that Americans favor only angers this loose coalition of single-issue special interest groups.

The Democrats have become the party of the status quo. Tax reform? No way. Social Security reform? Fuggedaboutit! A proactive foreign policy to fight terror? Give me a break. Tort reform, Medicare reform, Education reform, Bankruptcy reform, ANWR drilling, Free trade...? No, No, No, No, No, No!

The "message" that the Democrat party currently has? Change is bad, especially if it's good for the country. Start voting for us before things get better! Here's hoping that they stick to it.

Democrats need more than a message, they need a clue. The libs think if they have better packaging, Americans will vote for them. Well, since 1994 the average Joe has looked past the message and decided they don't like the product.

The Dems thinking the problem is they need to get their message out is like the guy who tells a really bad joke and then thinks that the reason no one laughed is because noone got it, so he tries to explain it. We GOT it, Howie, we just thought it was stupid!
