DEMOCRATIC PARTY PLACE - Party meets each Sunday a 11:00 AM!

"Can the Democrats become the majority party in America again?"

That was the question posed to a triumvirate of liberal communicators in the NYT's Sunday Book Review section. Michael Tomasky, executive editor of The American Prospect, answered the question with this ...

One of the Democratic Party's problems is that it doesn't have enough contact with its rank and file. Right-wing people in this country have a place to meet and talk politics -- their churches, increasingly the megachurches in the exurbs. There's not a meeting place like that for liberals and for Democrats. I think it's a job of the new party chairman to initiate some conversations about the core principles of the party.

Yep! That's the quote. Now, you and I both know it will be a cold day in h-e-double hockey sticks before Chairman Dean gets religion.

Plus, Tomasky needs to get out and meet some of these right-wingers he speaks of ... the conservatives I know who go to church don't talk about politics or parties on Sunday morning. They talk about conservative issues as they relate to their understanding of their faith as it relates to the Scriptures.
