The radicals at, think you, the American people, are stupid. What is wrong with you? You just don’t get it! Why can’t you understand that our assault on America and its institutions is for your own good? Aaaaargh!!!

Well, the folks at MoveOn didn’t actually say the last four sentences but they might as well have.

The group released a statement via email to “members” (I insert scare quotes because everyone on the email list is considered a member of MoveOn even if, like me, they’re on it merely to track the group) today claiming Americans were so dumb they got duped by eeeeevil corporations, especially the bogeyman of leftists everywhere, Fox News:

Democrats made genuine and significant progress on issues like health care and Wall Street reform. But the Republicans, Fox, and corporate front groups systematically misled America about all of that. And then those same groups spent hundreds of millions to put Republicans over the top.

Progressive heroes like Russ Feingold, Alan Grayson, and Tom Perriello stood up for everything we believe in. But they were swamped by voter frustration and corporate cash. [Note: Complete text of letter is at the bottom of this post.]

What about all the wealthy fat cats who backed the Democrats? What about all the money labor unions swamped places like Nevada with? What about the mega-corporations that have flooded Democratic campaign coffers for years?

President Obama concurred with MoveOn’s assessment during a teleconference call the day after the election. He said:

The American people are still frustrated. They still want change and we’ve just got to work harder to deliver the change the American people want.

Did you catch that? Here’s a translation:

The American people didn’t reject our vision for the country. They’re just angry because they’re too stupid to realize we did all we could to implement our agenda which they absolutely adore. We’re going to have to try harder to ram it down the throats of Congress before all those dummies out there in flyover country turn away from us forever.

MoveOn and Obama say the Left’s path to electoral salvation is to double-down on failed policies.

Good luck.


Dear MoveOn member,

There’s no sugarcoating it. The election results overall are devastating.
