"Democrats have their Schlitz Beer Reckoning" from over on Daily Kos [View all]

http://www.dailykos.com/story/2014/11/05/1341978/-Democrats-Have-Their-Schlitz-Beer-Reckoning

The Schlitz Beer saga, the story of how America's once favorite beer altered its hallmark recipe disastrously while seeking short term profits at the expense of quality and reputation, has always seemed to me to be analogous to the modern Democratic Party of the last decades.

I have often wondered these past few years - when will the message and role of the Democratic Party become so watered down, so diluted, so unpalatable and unrecognizable from its former self that the public, even the most loyal customers, simply stops buying it?

I think we're there.

Don't blame the public, Democratic Party - blame your own executives for short-sighted expediency, blame substituting inferior ingredients and blame changing your brewing process. In short, you have failed at every level.


Learn from this debacle, or repeat it.
