Why I Call The Democratic Campaign of 2014 Spam

I am a Democrat.

I am a contributor.

But the current plethora of mail from Democrats can only be called spam.

Not one mailing says WHY the Democrats should win.

Not one advances a program that they would enact if they won.

Most mailings have false headlines based on anticipations of victory over people like the Kochs and Karl Rove and the hapless Mitch McConnell.

This is apparently working.

I may yet contribute. But a party that does not respect the public enough to say what it will do will be little better than the party that has failed to seriously support the President for six years.

I am a progressive Democrat who favors everything Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren stand for.

The last person who made any sense to me as a Democratic operative was David Plouffe. I am sure in his private moments he like me has thrown his hands up.

This is a party that will not talk frankly to the public. And I suspect when we win in November the performance of the party will be little better than it has been in the last six years.

This party was silent when the President was betrayed on the night of his first inaugural. Now all it seems to be able to do is scream alarm and then thank those who shelled out to alleviate the fear.
