Some things in life aren’t fair. Like the fact that I’m just too damn old to participate in the 6-month political training program conducted by the Institute for a Democratic Future (IDF).

The IDF program is available to young Democrats age 21 to 35, and a few slots are still open for the Class of 2007. Past graduates include State Senator-elect Derek Kilmer ’02, State Representative-elect Kevin Van de Wege ’02, WashTech Founder Marcus Courtney ’98, former Seattle City Councilmember Judy Nicastro ’99, former Brier City Councilmember Sasha Doolittle ’01, as well as numerous legislative assistants, Party activists, young professionals, nonprofit executives and political campaigners.

The program runs from January to June (mostly weekends) and covers the legislative process, running a campaign, critical issues and developing a game plan for the future. This is an incredible opportunity for aspiring young politicians and activists, but hurry: applications are due December 1st.

Be sure you teach them about Al Gore’s Global warming, if they can get to the school in the Ice storms!

But then there is always his prvate jets and Limo’s which really show leadership on the subject of Global Warming.

“Facts that support my Position John Kerry is no longer loved by the Real Democrats today and everybody believes Al Gore is right on Global Warming.”

Democratic Sen. John Kerry, mulling a second bid for the U.S. presidency, finished dead last in a poll released Monday on the likability of 20 top American political figures.

Among those placing ahead of Kerry were about a dozen potential 2008 White House rivals, including Democratic Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York and Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona.

“This is bad, bad news for Kerry,” said Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute in Hamden, Connecticut, which conducted the survey.

“Americans know who he is, and have pretty much decided they don’t like him,” said Brown. He noted the poll found that 95 percent of respondents said they had heard enough about Kerry, who lost the 2004 White House race to U.S. President George W. Bush, to rate the Massachusetts Democrat.

From today’s WaPo:

There is something about the Web that brings out the ego monster in everybody. It’s not just the well-established tendency to be nasty. When you write for the Web, you open yourself up to breathtakingly vicious vitriol. People wish things on your mother, simply for bearing you, that you wouldn’t wish on Hitler.

But even in their quieter modes, denizens of the Web seem to lug around huge egos and deeply questionable assumptions about how interesting they and their lives might be to others.

this goldy character is the epitome of a liberal whiner. You’re abviously over 35, when the hell are you going to grow up?

10. Proud to be an Ass spews:

Goldy,

How many wingers signed up thinking they were joining the Israeli Defense Force?

Not many, no doubt. They mostly go out of their way to avoid those types of commitments. Like we say, “If the Rapture is nigh, then get with the program and ‘rapt’ out.”

We ‘left behinds’ won’t miss you.
