Democrats have a new motto: We quit

I'm having trouble keeping up with all the headlines involving Democrats these days.

Cindy Sheehan quits as protest leader

Rosie O'Donnell quits 'The View'

Pelosi quits on plan to restore ethics in House

Congressional Democrats quit on their leaders

Is there any truth to the rumor that the Democratic Party has adopted "We Quit" as its official slogan?

Cindy Sheehan, professional protester and publicity-seeker, is the latest high-profile Democrat to throw in the towel.

Sheehan announced Tuesday that she is quitting her designated role as the loneliest protester in Texas because Democrats are a bunch of quitters. So she quit.

"I've been wondering why I'm killing myself and wondering why the Democrats caved in to George Bush," Sheehan told The Associated Press while driving from her property in Crawford to the airport, where she planned to return to her native California.

Sheehan's decision comes on the heels of Rosie O'Donnell announcing she's quitting 'The View' although after her foaming-at-the-mouth tirade with the blonde girl on the show eventually led ABC to escort Ms. O'Donnell from the building.

And how can we forget the Democratic Party's embarrassing retreat on a timetable for leaving Iraq.

The party that took back Congress on a promise to pull U.S. troops from Iraq decided it didn't want to take on President Bush over war funding and a withdrawal timetable. In other words, the Democratic Party quit.

If Nancy Pelosi couldn't control her rank-and-file, what chance did Cindy Sheehan have of surviving another hot summer outside President Bush's Texas ranch?

For who? For what?

"I'm going home for awhile to try and be normal," Sheehan added in the Associated Press interview. I guess that depends on what your "definition" of normal is for somebody like Cindy Sheehan.

Sheehan posted the following comments on the left-wing blog, Daily Kos: "Good-bye America ... you are not the country that I love and I finally realized no matter how much I sacrifice, I can't make you be that country unless you want it. It's up to you now."

Who's left? I hear Michael Moore is still alive and kicking and is about to release another of those "mock-umentary" films of his. Alec Baldwin is around, but he's got some anger management issues to deal with. Sean Penn? Well, let's just say that Mr. Penn needs to concentrate on his sagging acting career. Penn has been in a string of box office bombs on the past two years.

I got it. Jimmy Carter. Just as soon as we can get Mr. Peanut back from visiting his pals Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro, Jimmy Carter can take the lead for the Democrats.
