The Big Lebowski on the Democrats

So I was watching one of my favorite comedies last night, and realized, how as a movie about basically nothing, it had great relevance to today's party of nothing, the Democrats.

Take John Goodman's character, for example. Can't you just see Dick Durbin, Charlie Rangle, or Howard Dean, in attacking "Republicanism" (which of course is in their minds even worse than Nazism, though they'll be magnanimous in public and only say it's equal to), saying, "Say what you will about the tenets of National Socialism, Dude, but at least it's an ethos."

Or the Dude's exasperation at Walter being an appropriate response to the canards about Iraq, "What the f*** does Vietnam have to do with anything?!?" It would of course also be an appropriate question for a former presidential candidate who, if you hadn't heard, served in Vietnam.
