  •  HR to the TJ for NOTV. (9+ / 0-)

    What starts out with a promising sentence or two about bullies, rapidly degenerates into a seething cesspool, shitting on Democrats.  

    Notice how the diarist uses "more leftier than thou" as their tactic.  This is all too common, though seldom quite as blatant.  

    Get a call from GOP GOTV? Talk their ear off! Keep 'em busy! Plus one long call to a progressive = minus two or three calls to undecideds!

      Push the bad guys in order to punish the people for being insufficiently left.
      The beatings will continue until morale improves.

        Greens, hawking their presidential candidate.

        Now I'm thinking it might be useful to have a green caucus in the D party, to advocate for ecology.  But in order to be taken seriously it would have to pledge to support the D candidates in the general elections, and it would have to have policies that could be understood & taken seriously by the electorate as a whole.  

        Something like that might also take the wind out of the sails of the "Green Party" itself, by bringing its "merely misguided" wing into the Ds where they could do some good, and isolating its "fanatical crazy" wing where they can't do much more harm.
