Yahoo News: Sen. John Kerry Blisters Republicans---

SEATTLE - Sen. John F. Kerry told state legislators Friday the Democratic Party doesn't need to undergo an extreme makeover, saying "the last thing America needs is a second Republican Party."
That's true, but considering the last 3 elections, America doesn't want the Democratic Party.

After blistering Republicans on everything from Iraq to health care, Kerry said Democrats have an opportunity to rebuild nationally by simply addressing the concerns that affect people's daily lives — energy, transportation, health care and security.

"We have to go out and fight for the real issues that make a difference in the lives of the American people and we don't need some great lurch to the right or lurch to the left or redefinition of the Democratic Party," the Massachusetts Democrat said. "The last thing America needs is a second Republican Party."
Right, since doing so has worked so well.

The Massachusetts senator said
the national government has been hijacked by fast-talking, mean-spirited and destructive Republicans.
Oh, yes, we're so mean-spirited. I mean, we go out and demand the adoption records of a nominee's children . . . oh, wait, that's the Democrats. And our elected officials call their's names like "loser" and "liar" to high school students . . . oops, that's the Dems again.
