I once thought this guy was a complete leftist asshole, but I just listened to him talk on Fox news. I was impressed. He still embraces leftist ideals, but at least the bastard has enough sense to see reality for what it is.
He said "The Democrats are on the wrong side of history now." He mentioned the events happening in Lebanon, Syria and Iran, all spawned by the United States' intervention in Iraq, and he said that these events are difficult to explain while being a Ted Kennedy "get out now!" politician. He knows that if his party stays on that track, it is doomed.
He supports Hillary Clinton for President in 2008. I wouldn't vote for that bitch if the office of Effingham County Dog-Catcher were open, but Ron made a good point in his interview. He said that SHE understands what is at stake here and she is smart enough to play the right cards. He may be correct.
People such as Ron and Hillary scare me on the left. The Ted Kennedys, the Ted Ralls, the Howard Deans and the Robert Byrds are predictable and asinine. Only the Kool-Aid drinkers take them seriously anymore. But if the left ever gets its head screwed on straight and ditches that anti-American rant that seems to dominate the thinking there, we could be in for big trouble.
Hillary could win in 2008 by supporting what we've done in the Middle East and our success in the War Against Terror. If people vote on that issue alone, she'll drag all of her socialist, leftist, health-care, tax-and-spend and "It Takes a Village" bullshit in through the back door and we'll be stuck with THAT.
I don't want people listening to Ron Silver. He's too much on target about what the Democrats should do. The bastard is RIGHT and I can't do anything but admit that fact. And the VERY LAST THING I would advocate is to shut him up. I believe in free speech.
But he still tells "Sweet Little Lies" the way all leftists do.
