  •  Classic example of nonsensical arguments made here (3+ / 0-)

    (a) that you seem to separate politics from a political situation on a political blog

    (b) that the diarist feels the need to defend politics in a political situation on a political blog

    Thus reinforcing a point from a friend of mine about the nature of the problem- that you aren't really serious about change. Because to change any of these things, you have to want to fight. And you clearly don't.

    •  Political blogs are not the 'party'. (1+ / 0-)

      Of course party members, blogs, orbs, unions, etc should join up, but the name 'Democratic Party' (aka 'democrats' in Tbagger speak) needs to stay away at least for now.  This is our battle against them, not Obama and Pelosi's entitlement riots/gay pride parade or whatever Fox will call it once they get involved.  It's our movement, not theirs.  

      Don't taint the message by getting caught in the traps of politics.  Party members/blogs/unions, good.  Party name and party leaders, bad.

        No one put those limitations on politics, but you. A political movement is still politics where it belongs to a party or not, and if you read my comment above, you would clearly see I don't give a shit about political parties anymore.
