'They said they were Democrats first'

by Smitty (hat tip: TOTUS blog)
ABC contributor George Will suggested former Sen. John Edwards was irresponsible to campaign for the Democratic Party nomination.
"Think about what a tragedy it would have been if he had won?" Will said.
Tragedy? Greek? The Book of Job? The current economy?
Several of [Edward's staffers] had gotten together and devised a "doomsday" strategy of sorts.
Basically, if it looked like Edwards was going to win the Democratic Party nomination, they were going to sabotage his campaign, several former Edwards' staffers have told me.
They said they were Democrats first, and if it looked like Edwards was going to become the nominee, they were going to bring down the campaign.
Look, if we're going to continue slouching The Road to Serfdom, then what difference does it make which stuffed shirt gets the credit/blame? Oh, right: non-worshippers of the POTUS are racist. OK, modulo the nebulous DNA difference, again: what's the difference?

'Democrats first' is as good as 'Republicans first'. How about 'Constitution first', ye losers?


  1. "Constitution first." Aye, aye, Captain Smitty...

  2. The Constitution is not in the interests of the Party.

  3. The Constitution does not support the Party.
