As I mentioned, way back, on another live journal; I love Dr. Strangelove. Yes it's old, yes it's stars have assumed "room temperature" long ago and yes it was an anti-war screed, but it was a boffo movie. Another poster critiquing the Democratic Party chimes in.
"The Democrat leadership has become an re-enactment of the film Dr. Strangelove.
Reid is General Jack D. Ripper who sees a vast right-wing conspiracy seeking to sap and impurify everyone's precious bodily fluids.
Dean is Dr. Strangelove who continually battles inner demons which gain the upper hand and cause statements like "mein Fuhrer" to slip in while he battles to suppress reflexive Hitlerian salutes.
The press is General Turgidson whose primary goal is perpetuate the fling with the secretary.
The DNC is the bimbo secretary.
Bill Clinton is Major Kong (without any of the likeable characteristics of Slim Pickens role) who is content to whoop and holler as he rides down upon an A-bomb of his creation which is headed straight towards the total destruction of the Democrat Party.
Cue the soundtrack of "Try A Little Tenderness" and step back as Reid and Deano superheat while reaching critical mass. "
