Democratic Leadership Council To Fold, Leaving Dems With No Leaders
Famous Bill Clinton centrism manufacturer the Democratic Leadership Council is said to be "out of money" and will soon close, likely yet another victim of Chinese labor that can sell out core values of the party quicker and cheaper. (They should have never supported that free trade stuff.) Since its president, Bruce Reed, left to go work for Joe Biden on important Joe Biden issues, the once-proud ally of some of the most annoying, gutless politicians, from Joe Lieberman to Neville Chamberlain (probably), has not been able to find a new leader or any money. Apparently the DLC's job is done, and certain organizations, after seeing themselves bailed out, no longer feel it's necessary. Both parties are desperate to make bankers like them now.
The DLC is already showing signs of disrepair. Its website currently leads a Harold Ford op-ed from last November, titled, "Yes we can collaborate." It lists as its staff just four people, and has only one fellow. Recent tax returns weren't immediately publicly available, but returns from 2004-2008 show a decline in its budget from $2.6 million to $1.5 million, and a source said funding further dried up during the financial crisis that began nine months before Reed took over.
Haha, "we can collaborate." Did the Nazis take control of this website? Is that why it's no longer doing anything? Also, you need $1.5 million to do basically nothing but have Harold Ford say something stupid once in a while?
Anyway, we leave you with a look at their Facebook page:
So many fans. And their most recent Twitter things:
Yep, may as well just fold the Democratic Party too. That Evan Bayh sure has some great ideas, huh? [Ben Smith]
