Daily Kos: Democrats: All you have to do is FIGHT:
"And there is only one thing the American People hate more than cowardly lying bullies.

People who lie down and roll over to cowardly lying bullies and let them take their lunch money.

WITHOUT EVEN A FIGHT.

If you had a choice between either voting for cowardly lying bullies or voting for someone who lets a cowardly lying bully beat them up every goddam day and never fight back.....who would you vote for?

That is the choice the American voter faces in November.

That is the ONLY reason any swing election will be close this year.

The Republicans have a tiny base, a horrible record, no money, no ideas, no solutions....nothing. And the voters KNOW this. Yet they have no real choice. Vote for the bully, or vote for the victim of the bully who gets rolled every frikking time. When they aren't busy running from the fight or hiding under their desks, that is.

Their is only one thing the Democrats have to do to change that, to BREAK the hold of the bully and get our government working for the American People again.

FIGHT BACK."

Daily Kos: The Republican Party is a wholly owned subsidiary of the insurance industry:
"'The Republican Party is a wholly owned subsidiary of the insurance industry.'

That's what I said on the House floor this afternoon.

The Republicans squealed like pigs and immediately demanded that my words be 'taken down' as they say in the House. But they can't say it's not true."
