  •  Well, this theory WOULD explain what happened (9+ / 0-)

    to the hard-hitting, insightful and solidly progressive blog I signed up for a few years ago.

    The Multiverse has a robust sense of humor, even if DKos lacks even a weak one, because I seem to consistently receive the center-right version of the site.

    When you triangulate everything, you can't even roll downhill...

    •  The version I receive (2+ / 0-)

      Smoh, PhilJD

      has several bouncing boobs - concern-troll centrist dunces, MSM stenographers, and the kind of straw man leftists who Fox News is fond of inviting on (and who are dumb enough to accept).  The sort of brilliance that ran rampant here before is pretty rare now.

    •  The trending of the democratic party (1+ / 0-)

      Do keep in mind that this site is by democrats for  democrats.

      And the democratic party is trending to the right.

      So you can expect that DK will also be trending to the right.

        is an example of the GOP-serving bullshit I'm talking about.

      •  The "leadership" does not speak for the party (2+ / 0-)

        ...especially not these days. Democrats as a whole have long been a mixed bag, representing many interests, factions, & "wings" — but the corporatist faction owns the microphones, & from them we get tone-deaf, "me-too" righty rhetoric, as well as elitist shunning of the progressive core of the party for the "crime" of taking the party platform seriously.

        In that sense, the factions at Daily Kos (to at least some extent) reflect the factions in the Democratic Party in general — except that here we are much freer than career apparatchiks to speak our minds, state our real needs, & make the great arguments.

        As for the general fear about Daily Kos being overrun by reactionaries: Some faction or another has been alleging an imminent Republican takeover of the site since almost the beginning — & we still have yet to see it.
