  •  So Rush's Operation Chaos (9+ / 0-)

    Was a good thing because it allowed people to take a long look at Obama.

    Remember your words the next time the Democrats have to go through the primary process.

    •  those are your words (2+ / 0-)

      You are making a false analogy which is an informal fallacy.

      My point was that it is defensible from a progressive point of view to allow people to have a look at Santorum.

      That is the power of a vote.  It is not a neutral thing.

      If kos had a vote to end the open primary business, he would end it.

      That is what should be remembered by Democrats and those that can change things should do so

        analogy: it's yours to begin with it.

        so... because dirty tricks are in the service of progressive politics, it's okay.  IOKIYP?

        that's their justification too.

        WHY IS EASIER TO BELIEVE THAT 150,000,000 AMERICANS ARE BEING LAZY, RATHER THAN THAT 400 ARE BEING GREEDY?

        It was stated that prolonging the conflict was good because it would allow people to take a longer look at Santorum.

        Logically, then, prolonging the conflict running up to 2008 was also a good thing because it allowed people to take a longer look at Obama.

        And if the Republicans pull another Operation Chaos in 2016, I'm sure you'll cheer that one too because it will allow people to take a longer look at the candidates in that contest as well.

          I said that prolonging it was good from a progressive perspective.

          I did not say that all conflicts should be prolonged which is a hasty generalisation

          I will say that this is a reason to change the rules.

          But just because the rules may change in the future, we do not have to stop working for Obama now

        •  Gee, People took a long look at Obama (0+ / 0-)

          and whadda ya know, it got him elected.  Funny how things work out that way.

      •  Your words (0+ / 0-)

        ...are a rationalization, not a defense.
