Levy switches to Republican. Yawn!

IW:  Kimberly thinks I need to write something about this.  No news article link posted here because it’s not really news.

I knew Steve  Levy would be at home in either corporate party since he first ran for Suffolk County Executive.  That’s why we tried to run John Keenan on the Green Party line.  John still woulda been a better county executive.

This is all just Rick Schaffer in reverse.  The Suffolk Democratic chair had a policy of recruiting Republicans to run as Democrats.  This is just the obverse. Which one is which again?

As Kimberly likes to quote, Nassau County Democratic Chair Jay Jacobs has said on the radio that the Republican Party is his second favorite party.

Or as Ralph Nader put it there is not a dime’s worth of difference between the two corporate parties. “The only difference between the Republican and Democratic parties is the velocities with which their knees hit the floor when corporations knock on their door. That’s the only difference. ” Both corporate parties support the wars and oppose single payer.  The American public doesn’t.  When are we gonna be free of the corporate media charade that Democratic and Republican Parties are on different sides?

  1. I don’t recall Nader ever stepping into the trap of being caught actually SAYING: “there is not a dime’s worth of difference between the two corporate parties.” He was often accused of this by Dem apologists, but in all the tapes and transcripts I reviewed I never saw it or heard it. The closest he’d allow was, the differences between the parties (or their nominees) was not as great as their similarities. But the “dime’s worth” claim (which doubles George Wallace’s “not a nickel’s worth of difference” claim!) still lacks any attribution *I* can find!

  2. Isn’t it funny how you “yawn” over this Party Switch. Yet if it had been a Republican switching to Democrat you’d be crowing about it all over the web.

    Bet if we look back at your archives, when Specter switched to Dem, you were much more favorable, and didn’t view it as a “yawn.”

    You Lefty swine are so transparent.

  3. Not that Ian or Kimberly (or even myself) would need any explanation or justification, but I’m amused by Eric’s response. He starts with several blatant assertions of unsubstantiated premises (that “you,” presumably Ian, would “crow” over a switch in the other direction, absent any such evidence being demonstrated, or that that there’s something in the archives to support this, though, again, no such evidence is provided to support the mere claim), and then draws several conclusions, absent any logical nexus (that Ian is a “Lefty swine” and is “transparent”ly so, even though all that is based on the strawman Eric props up without any support!

    To use language Eric might understand (though I’ve made it more logically palatable), “Some of you wacko wingnuts are often so obvious!” particularly when it comes to deficiencies in logic and debate! (Unless of course, he’s simply being over-the-top facetious and parodying the typical wacko wingnut position and style, in which case, “Well done! You fooled me!”)
