    disgraceful, anti-Democratic behavior. Also, I think it's a perfect contrast, couldn't be starker, between a faux "Democrat" like Mark Warner - someone who calls himself a "radical centrist" but has no clue what that means, who uses "Democrat" as an adjective, who constantly poses false equivalencies between Dems and Teapublicans (e.g. MoveOn and the Tea Party are the same), who disses environmentalists and panders to coal every chance he gets, who advocates austerity as a way to create jobs, etc, etc. -  and a REAL Democrat, one with courage and integrity (Warner has none of either) like Andy Schmookler.  This stark contrast shines a bright light on the types of candidates Democrats should be supporting (people like Andy Schmookler) and the types of candidates they should NOT be supporting (jerks like Warner). Bottom line: I think the contrast is appropriate, highly revealing, and powerful.
