    You're talking about Rs or Dems "listening to us"?
    Do you really think that DC policymakers or even their staffers have the time to pore through all the diaries and comments on all the many progressive blog sites?
    They might skim the Post or the Times or The Hill, but to think that by typing out a critique here we are engaging in some sort of political activism is absurd and Onanistic.
    Sure, a few pols post diaries here, to get their views out, but for the most part, this is merely an echo chamber, so the only eyes we are reaching are those of fellow progressives.
    "Wull, I can criticize my president if I want to!"
    Of course.  And you can wear your underwear outside of your clothes if you want to.
