‘First we have to bitch about it, then move on’

25 08 2008

In a quote from a Jackson Sun in a story about Tennessee delegates in Denver for what could prove to be one of the most historic democratic conventions of my lifetime, I found this quote which I thought was right on topic.

James Buckley, a delegate from Antioch, hopes Obama and Clinton supporters can show unity at the convention.

“Verbal dissent should be placed in the appropriate place: in the baggage before we leave,” said Buckley, 59, a union representative in the Nashville office for the United Steelworkers.

But Buckley is realistic about the potential for public dissent.

“Of course we will, we’re Democrats,” Buckley said. “First we have to b—- about it,” then move on.”

Heh.

Hmm . . . sometimes I wonder if a percentage of politicians are blond, whiny, rich-bitch Californians at heart.
