A Sign Your Party Has Hit Rock Bottom

This is a post about the Democratic Party of Georgia which means you’re probably saying “welcome to like, four years ago, Ed.”

Well today they sent out an email that proves they are utterly and truly bereft of any meaningful strategy or plan.

“We want to pet your progressive pet!” the DPG exclaimed, inviting you to Grant Park on April 3 for “Bark in the Park.” It is what it sounds like. A smalltimers version of the Westminster Kennel Club.

“‘Bark in the Park’ will take place from 11a-2p as we give out awards for Best Costume, Best Hair-Do [sic], Best Bark, Cutest Puppy, and more,” the DPG wrote. “All doggies are encouraged to enter and win!”

In case you wanted to double down on the embarrassment, sponsorship opportunities are available.

Maybe instead of dogs, the DPG should look for a shark.

Update from the Editors -This post is incomplete without the following quotation from noted philosopher Dr. Carl Spackler:

Enjoy your weekend!

        I’ve also gotten e-mails about an event with Bill Maher and a job fair today in Milledgeville. They are truly history’s greatest monsters!

          They aren’t monstrous, just profligate. However, which is worse? Rarely does an opportunity present itself like the one in which the DPG is in mid-squander. Might be better to be monstrous than inept.

    There’s not a single “evolution is a lie from the pit of hell” or “Todd Akin was on to something” in the announcement, so I think we’re doing just fine, thanks.

    In any event, I’d rather hang out with animals than cry about my guns being taken away or how vital it is to get Karen Handel elected.

    Dear James – That is why you should attend “Bark in the Park” and have your “progressive pet” stroked.

    • James says:

      I just might do that. Cinnamon is the greatest dog of all time and, like her parents, is very progressive.

    What a political party is hosting a social event? You mean they are getting likeminded people together so that they can talk, interact, and socialize?

    For you “political” people, perhaps you should pick up “Bowling Alone” by Robert Putnam and find that his number one criticism was the lack of civic engagement.

    • GAPolitico says:

      Lowered trust in areas with high diversity is also associated with:

      Lower confidence in local government, local leaders and the local news media.
      Lower political efficacy – that is, confidence in one’s own influence.
      Lower frequency of registering to vote, but more interest and knowledge about politics and more participation in protest marches and social reform groups.
      Higher political advocacy, but lower expectations that it will bring about a desirable result.
      Less expectation that others will cooperate to solve dilemmas of collective action (e.g., voluntary conservation to ease a water or energy shortage).
      Less likelihood of working on a community project.
      Less likelihood of giving to charity or volunteering.
      Fewer close friends and confidants.
      Less happiness and lower perceived quality of life.
      More time spent watching television and more agreement that “television is my most important form of entertainment”.

        You poke fun at this non-legislative item and yet the “comprehensive shamnesty” is in full swing and claimed to be needed for a certain party’s unity and survival?

        Which of these events will have lasting national impact?

        I wish BOTH parties would take a breather and “Bark in the Park” of their choosing, as long as both medical staff is on hand to administer rabies shots and Animal Control is present to put down some of the more aggressive…

    This is a brilliant idea. I love it when party loyalists get together and bring along warm bodies that have no qualms about openly crapping all over everything.

  5. Ed says:

    I just think it is odd that here we are on the final week of the legislature and I can’t recall a single email about the Session. This, and the heretofore mentioned events, yes.
