View Diary: A brief chat with Darcy Burner (67 comments)

Comment Preferences

  •  A) For the past 3 years Darcy HAS been (3+ / 0-)

    "doing" something, not running for office, moving to DC and working with the Progressive Congress Action Fund on changing policy.

    B) Darcy faced a last minute smear campaign in 2008 so it's not like she was taking it easy. Plus she was running against a well funded local hero, right wing though he be.

    C) Darcy is a true and unabashed progressive, unlike many candidates who court the progressive netroots then turn corporatist when they win.

    D) Darcy can run or not run if she wants to and can post on Daillykos and any other blogs as much as she wants. That's up to her and any other candidate. If she has the best campaign, she'll win the primary. If she's the focus of the netroots, then she'll get a lot of diaries, mentions, and recs. If not, then she won't.

    E) The netroots can write about and recommend diaries about whatever and whoever they want. Personally, I'd rather see another Burner diary than another pooties and woozles diaries (as critical as they are for Democratic electoral politics).

    If you're tired of Burner diaries, then write about the progressive candidates you support instead - and I'll rec them.
