Why oh why is our party led by such losers?

It's like he's a coldly calculating automaton who expertly triangulate the most efficient way of making his own party look bad. I don't think I can add any more to the excellent analysis below by RJ Eskow:

This is why Democrats can't win elections, even as the GOP tries unsuccessfully to self-destruct. John Kerry issued a statement today calling for a new Secretary of Defense, as rumors swirled that the ever self-serving Joe Lieberman might be tapped for the job. Said the failed Presidential candidate (who, lest we forget, lost to the man whose poll numbers are now in the 30's):

“The President owes it to our troops serving in Iraq to remove Secretary Rumsfeld and replace him at the Pentagon with a Defense Secretary who understands the situation on the ground in Iraq and who will advance, not undermine, American values around the world."

That's thinkin', John. Pretend that the problem is the underling, not the boss - much less the Party and the campaign financing system that supported the boss. That way, simply switching underlings will be enough to help the boss - and his party - win again in 2006.

If Bush replaces Rumsfeld, you've provided him with great cover. If Lieberman takes the job, the two of you will have given GOP congressional candidates a little boost. We'll finally see some "Joe-mentum" -- for Republicans in '06.

That's why Kerry - and Lieberman, and their party - are such perennial losers. Great tactics, Dems, as always.
