"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Wow apparently, unbeknownst to us, the Democrat party in CA is drifting to the center. I didn't know Lee, Boxer, Davis, Feinstein and the others were embracing conservative values. Oh wait, that's only in comparison to Al Sharpton.

Democratic committee member Poppy Demarco Dennis of Del Mar called herself surprised by Sharpton's sounding of traditional Democratic themes. "He's been portrayed as rather extreme and one sided,"

"As far as I'm concerned, he's a dedicated Democrat," said Orange County state Assembly candidate G. Nanjundappa.

California's Democratic party chief Art Torres, a 20-year state legislator, invited Sharpton, urging delegates to see him in person rather than how he is portrayed by the media. Torres said Sharpton "has rejuvenated, in my opinion, the civil rights movement."

Can't you just feel the centrist drift?

The Rev. also urged the attendeed to reject Ward Connerly's initiative to ban state and local governments from recording a person's race. Says Al, "We feel that it is a veiled way to hide racism in the marketplace and the business arena." Of course he has never talked to Connerly about the initiative nor has he met him, but Al has never been one to let ignorance of the facts get in the way of a good cry of racism.
