"Don't ask me to be consistent"


Sen. Mark Pryor (D-AR) is vice-chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee - the committee whose official mission is "to elect more Democrats to the United States Senate." Yet, Pryor says he's supporting GOP-endorsed candidate Joe Lieberman (CT) against Democratic nominee Ned Lamont. He's supporting Lieberman at the very same time he acknowledges that Lieberman's continued parroting of RNC talking points is unacceptable. Pryor's public rationale? "Don't ask me to be consistent," he told a group in Arkansas. Right, I forgot - no one should ask Democratic U.S. Senators to be consistent...what were we thinking?

...and some people still wonder why the Democratic Party remains susceptible to GOP charges of flip-flopping and/or standing for nothing.

With this kind of "friend", who needs enemies? Get that sonofabitch outta there. Put someone in his place who will support Democrats, for fuck's sake. Supporting the official Repuglican candidate is absolutely unacceptable.
