wanna talk about how bad democrats are at getting out their message?

i just got up. my routine is to go to the - what used to be the msnbc page - nbc news now, and watch rachel maddow while i get ready for work. these are the "politics" headlines available at this moment:

where's the president's name? it shows up one time. romney, FOUR headlines start with his name.

notice the story about the disclosure bill that the republicans blocked: "Senate blocks action..." no, motherfuckers, it was the REPUBLICANS in the senate who blocked that bill!

this is not the fault of the democrats. this is corporatism. not the news. they don't care about us or the country.

i feel sick.

also i am so tired of democrats bashing democrats for what REPUBLICANS do. it's like we get mad at democrats because they haven't succeeded at training a wave not to hit the beach.
