    during the euphoric after-glow of what was indeed a triumph.

    I'm not saying that your analysis is incorrect, and it wouldn't matter if it were. The point is that we do have to examine, and re-examine what we say and do, because the consequence of not doing so would turn us into the very echo chamber that has just cost Republicans so dear.

    Despite the hand-wringing (we are Democrats after all), this site does broadly occupy reality, and much of the meta is what keeps it there.

    Markos "shoots from the lip". He has always done that. His greatest weakness is that he sometimes does that. It is also his strength.

    That he has created a place that allows this kind of discussion is testament to the site management. It is only a few short weeks ago that Erick Erickson introduced a policy of banning anyone who mentioned "fact-checking", from RedState.

    I know that many hate this kind of meta discussion. I can see their point yet I can't help but think it is largely just that which makes the place so attractive .... because it informs us all.

    I would also like to add my appreciation for your candidacy ... It's walking the walk. Good Job!

    I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
    but I fear we will remain Democrats.
