The American high-school prom has been commemorated so many times on film (it is hard to imagine how John Hughes, director of Pretty in Pink, The Breakfast Club and Sixteen Candles, could have had a career without it) that it's easy to believe that the myth has somehow overtaken the reality.

 WorldNetDaily: My un-American Democratic Party   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
If I am right that the Democrats (under current leadership) are no longer an American party in any traditional sense, then this has massive implications for our two-party system – which depends on mutual respect and common goals.
Witness how my party acted during the Iraq War – undermining the president at every opportunity – even while knowing America's terrorist enemies were taking comfort in words like "liar" and "fraud" and "regime change." It was a very sad thing to watch for those of us who remember a different Democratic Party.
All they need to do is solidify their angry base – then entrench like an occupying army – and wait until Americans are desperate for a political "change." No one can break the stranglehold of a party that has a solid 40-45 percent base (as some experts claim), and few moral limits.
