Believe it or not, that is the actual name of the official Democratic Party blog -- Kicking Ass.
I just went there for the first time ever, as part of my research into and interest in the Democratic Party strategy to win in November, and that is what I discovered.
I can imagine a blog started by boosters of a high school football team naming their blog Kicking Ass.
I can imagine a blog for karate students naming their blog Kicking Ass.
I can imagine fans of wrestlemania naming their blog Kicking Ass.
I can imagine a blog started by unrepentant wife-beaters naming their blog Kicking Ass.
Was the naming of this blog left to some 17-year old intern? What adult approved this puerile name? What kind of message does the Democratic Party think this name sends to supporters and opponents alike? How can the people at the National Democratic headquarters not be constantly embarrassed by this name? Does the leadership of the Democratic Party really think we are going to garner undecided votes with language like this?
I can just see the Republicans cowering in their corridors of power -- "ohhhh noooo, they are going to kick our asses!!"
I am not a prude, by any means. Ask anyone who knows me. But this is really disheartening.
