After Lamont’s win over Joe Lieberman yesterday, the far leftist MoveOn moonbats have ratcheted up the rhetoric. Take a gander at Michael Moore’s ultimatum to all pro-Iraq war Democrats. Who will be the next Democrat to face the leftists’ wrath? Hillary Clinton. His message? Get in line or your political career will be over. Ladies and gentlemen, the destruction of the Democratic party has officially begun:
Let the resounding defeat of Senator Joe Lieberman send a cold shiver down the spine of every Democrat who supported the invasion of Iraq and who continues to support, in any way, this senseless, immoral, unwinnable war. Make no mistake about it: We, the majority of Americans, want this war ended — and we will actively work to defeat each and every one of you who does not support an immediate end to this war.
Nearly every Democrat set to run for president in 2008 is responsible for this war. They voted for it or they supported it. That single, stupid decision has cost us 2,592 American lives and tens of thousands of Iraqi lives. Lieberman and Company made a colossal mistake — and we are going to make sure they pay for that mistake. Payback time started last night.
I realize that there are those like Kerry and Edwards who have now changed their position and are strongly anti-war. Perhaps that switch will be enough for some to support them. For others, like me — while I’m glad they’ve seen the light — their massive error in judgment is, sadly, proof that they are not fit for the job. They sided with Bush, and for that, they may never enter the promised land.
To Hillary, our first best hope for a woman to become president, I cannot for the life of me figure out why you continue to support Bush and his war. I’m sure someone has advised you that a woman can’t be elected unless she proves she can kick ass just as crazy as any man. I’m here to tell you that you will never make it through the Democratic primaries unless you start now by strongly opposing the war. It is your only hope. You and Joe have been Bush’s biggest Democratic supporters of the war. Last night’s voter revolt took place just a few miles from your home in Chappaqua. Did you hear the noise? Can you read the writing on the wall?
To every Democratic Senator and Congressman who continues to back Bush’s War, allow me to inform you that your days in elective office are now numbered. Myself and tens of millions of citizens are going to work hard to actively remove you from any position of power.
If you don’t believe us, give Joe a call.
P.S. Republicans — sorry to leave you out of this letter. It’s just that our side has a little housecleaning to do. We’ll take care of you this November.
This is just too delicious for Republicans. Michael Moore and his MoveOn crowd have officially taken over the Democratic party. What will Hillary Clinton and the others do? Will they bow at the altar of the moonbats or will they fight for their party?
Update: Mark Kilmer at RedState comments:
The man has tasted blood, now he thinks he can rip apart the entire Democrat Party. For Republicans, this can be fun to watch. The nuts have a grip on that Party, they are a living, breathing, elected part of it. The erstwhile party of Andrew Jackson, JFK, and the second President Roosevelt are now the party of Howard Dean, Barbara Boxer, Nancy Pelosi, and Michael Moore. (You know the other names which belong on the list.)
Update II: Tom Bevan writing at RCP Blog offers comments regarding Michael Moore’s claim that he speaks for the majority of Americans:
A majority of the public may not be happy with progress in Iraq, but neither do they subscribe to Moore’s view that it is “senseless,” “immoral,” or “unwinnable.” Despite what he may think, Michael Moore’s rabid, far left partisanship is never going to represent the majority view in this country. The problem is that Moore now represents the majority view within the Democratic party – further cemented by Lamont’s victory last night – and that just might cost them another decade or two in the wilderness.
Update III: The far left moonbats have pushed other reasonable and judicious Democrats out of the party. Brendan Loy has announced that he got the message and that he’s leaving the Democratic Party:
But now the voters have spoken. Lieberman may still consider himself a Democrat – he says that, if elected as an independent, he’ll vote to organize with the Dems, and I believe him – but the Democrats don’t consider Lieberman a Democrat anymore. That’s the cold, hard truth of today’s results. He’s been kicked out of the “big tent” because his loyalty wasn’t blind enough, because his conscience wasn’t pliable enough. He’s been replaced by the shiny new millionaire who said all the right things to win over the hearts and minds of the netroots. The war in Iraq is wrong, wrong, wrong; President Bush is bad, bad, bad; and Joe Lieberman is a traitor, a traitor, a traitor. That’s the undeniable message that Democratic voters from my home state have sent out across the land this fateful day.
Well, if there’s no room in the Democratic Party for Joe Lieberman, then there’s no room in it for me.
Update IV: Jeff Goldstein‘s fisking of Moore’s letter is a must read.
