Atrios, for instance, gloats this morning that Malkin "runs away" from supporting Red Stater Ben Domenech. So, the "left" gets it scalp, and in so doing just helped reconfirm the low level of political discourse that already existed pre-bloggyland and has given us the lickspittle-fest we have now. Status quo maintained.
How far the tables have turned in such a short time...if you know me at all and my history here (and you probably don't)...well, it's pretty funny that even for a day I could find myself being the face of Democratic Party Positivity.
Just makes me want to shed a gawddam tear.
"For years, the Bush White House and its allies on Capitol Hill seemed like one of the most unified teams Washington had ever seen, passing most of Bush's agenda with little dissent. Privately, however, many lawmakers felt underappreciated, ignored and sometimes bullied by what they regarded as a White House intent on running government with little input from them."It must be awful tough to be a frustrated, "bullied", member of the GOP.

...partly because I publicly promised to write an "I'm sorry for being a presumptuous and accussing jackass diary" if my banning at Dailykos turned out to be a technical glitch and not a purposeful act of censorship, and partly to excise the * gack * I've been feeling the past week.
It is simply this: SOME KOSSACKS ARE JUST MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS.
It's just that I'm suddenly and immediately tired of people telling me how to act and what I should do with MY activism. 'Get up, we can't give up - we need to try harder, more times more often, more vigourously, more happilty, and with a bigger fucking grin of insanity on our faces.'
"So we are now on the map. The Alito vote may have fizzled, but you better believe the Dem establishment knows we exist."72/25 and they "know we exist"?
Maybe Kos, should have revised his prepared speech before hoisting it on to the internets. Sounds like he wrote it when we were expecting to be within a vote or two.
Peronsally I hope people give him that message, because if this is what is going to pass for ANY kind of victory (moral or otherwise) - then you can count me out.

You see this whole "Rubicon" thing is way the heck out in left field (pun intended). I mean sure it's great - Markos lead us to the promised land. We're ready we're able - we got your back, Markos. It'll be aces. I promise.
The only problem with that is a tiny, tiny little thing called Openly Declared Statements Made In The Past (ODSMP).
Sometimes it's C.
With this in mind I would like to interrupt constantly-in-progress God not God War to ask everyone involved to consider that Atheism and theism are not as different as you might tend to think:
