    Yes I've heard of Emos, though I'm not sure I entirely understand them, but what's an EmoProg?

    "Minus two votes for the Democrat" equals "plus one vote for the Republican." Arithmetic doesn't care about your feelings.

      That's my guess. A hand wringer if you will

        .... and plenty of readin' & writin' have gone by since then.

        But anyway thanks for the reminder.

        Humans are weird.  Time for me to ring up the Gray Council on the ansible and file another report.

    •  emoprog (7+ / 0-)

      i found a definition below, but am not familiar with "emoprog," either, and really don't know how accurate this is:

      Emo Progressive (or “emoprog”) is a self-described liberal or progressive, often with strong libertarian leanings, whose primary political orientation is to be angry, dissatisfied and unhappy with the state of the nation at any given time, because in their view, liberal policies are not being implemented quickly enough or articulated forcefully enough. They have particular contempt for Democratic presidents.

        in most cases an insult to deflect from serious issues. If you critique the drone wars - you're not to be taken as good faith, no matter how much good faith you present in your critique - you're just being an "emoprog". It's horrible shit that just fucking thrives on DKos. (And balloon Juice, just to note, and most unfortunately.)
