Same Old, Same Old

Two Democratic Party leaders best described as "venerable" are Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Dianne Feinstein. Sadly, each is far more concerned with their personal positioning at the peak of power than with developing progressive policies. Each worked with Bush-Cheney to attack Iraq (at huge cost), magnifying our enemies, building the US federal security state, and starving American communities of funds -- wasting many lives at home & abroad.

Here's a well-written criticism:

I'm wholly dissatisfied with the corporatist Democratic machine; these two spiders control large sticky webs. And Big Money Democratic politico Steny Hoyer is even worse. The corruption of US politics in both major parties runs very deep. To progress we must confront these rigid oldsters: "Thank You for your service. Now git!"
