    Gee guys, if Rahm Emmanule didn't spend his time recruiting "establishment" candidates for Democratic primaries, you might actually think he's doing a good job and then you'd stop attacking him. That might lead the Congressman to believe you didn't like him anymore.

    I have a question for jgarcia and desputo.
    First, you cry about weak leadership and then you nitpick when one of those leaders shows some gumoption> Just what do you want, anyway?
    Oh, I forgot. This is the liberal blogsophere. Negative, negative, negative and never cut your own leaders any slack becasue of one or two things they did which you didn't like.
    I'm glad I'm an independent.

    While I share some of the avenger's feelings about Naderites and Green Party types in general (I happen to think that Ralph Nader is proof positive that you don't have to be a right-wing Republican in order to be a political or activist has-been that refuses to leave the scene), it's possible that the best way around the Naderites is by reaching out to them.

  • comment on a post CA-50: 36, 35, 34, 33, 32... realignment? over 8 years ago
    I really don't have a comment on this. Certainly if Busby loses, the national press will spin it favorably for the GOP despite the make-up of the district. My fear is that the blogosphere is constantly getting wrapped up in the hype of these special elections and possibly setting themselves up for failure by declaring this or that uphill Congressional election a "must win"
    and then spending the month after said election sitting around feeling sorry for themselves when the windmill takes down Don Quxiote.
    The Democrats have taken few prisoners in the numerous special local and state legistlative elections this cycle and their losses have come in heavily Republican districts where the losing Democratic candidate outperforms the party's typical show by roughly 10 percent, so that may be a harbinger that nobody's talking about.
    On the night when Busby failed to clear the impossibly high bar the blogosphere called on her to make, for insitance, the Democrats won a special state legislative election in Pennsylvania, taking away a seat held by the Republicans for 40 years.
    The Dmocrats also elected a mayor in Tulsa, Okla., taking over City Hall in a city and a state that are so red they're infected.
    The outcome in CA-50 may be a harbinger of things to come, but the liberal blogosphere shoulkd do something different for a change and go into this election with an open mind. They should also be prepared to keep working otowards their goals.
  • Sorry to be so harsh, it's jstu thjat I'm not an activist or a lifelong Democrat and I've read so much piling on from you guys that the slightest hint of displeasure sets me off. Please forgive the misinterpretation.

  • comment on a post The 'Prospect' Dean breakfast - highlights over 8 years ago

    Why does Dr. Dean even try? Poeple like this poster will just find things to criticize. The good doctor should have just bent over and grabbed his ankles, since that's what this poster and other so-called party loyalists accuse of him of no matter what. Btw, I'm not a Dem loyalist or activist and listening to you nettering nabobs of negativism makes me very glad for that.

    Nine comments on this post, all of them negative. Yep, typcial bloggers.
    Why is it that when somebody tires to inject at least a little cautious optimism, you people gang up on them?
    I wish I could quit these sites.
  • on a comment on What A Slimy Fellow Obama Is over 8 years ago
    OK. You have that right, but apparently all you guys seems to do is dissent. Obama, Kerry, Hillary, Biden, Reid, Pelosi, Dezn, you name the Democratic politician and the moment they do something you don't 100 percent agree with you scream "DINO" and want them ridden out of town on a rail. That's the same kind of crap that drove me nuts about the right wing.
    Just how many seconds after Obama was elected did you become disillusioned with him?
    I'm an independent, so maybe I don't share your fervor and as both an independent and an ex-Republican, to me there's nothing more annoying than a bunch of impossible to please activitists complining.

    blues and Gary-

    Posts like this are nice to read (soft of). They remind me that you don't have to be a right-wing Republican in order to be a paranod crybaby.

  • comment on a post god told me to hate you over 8 years ago
    I read this and the attitude of this girls in Georgia breaks my heart. I don't know what is more heartbreaking, the antipathy directed twords evangelical and fundmamentalist Chirstians or the unsettling feeling (at least on my part) that as far as some of their actions on aborition and homosexuality are concerned, they're bringing that antipathy on themselves.
    I's part of a fundamentalist denomination, but I was also the victim of more  than a little cruel ridicule in school. I don't know what I would do if I saw someone being mean to a gay or lesbian, since yelling "stop" would probably be looked down upon by my circle of friends, but what if that was what Christ would do?
    I mean, people like that girl in Georgia, the radio church, the televangelists and people like me are supposed to be following a Lord who restored the ear of a member of the mob which took him to Calvary. A wound inflicted by one of his Disciples.
    I have long had trouble with bitternesss and hatefulness and while I have to admit some sympathy with the Religous Right's concerns about homosexualty, I'm no fan of that group and I can't participate in their activities because of those problems.
    Would my bitterness and hatefulness be OK if it was directed at liberals and homosexuals?
