    of Republicans in office enacting their conservative agenda of austerity and protecting the wealthy instead of Democrats doing it.

    It's better when Democrats fuck the rest of us because their mouths make the right noises while they're doing it and some of them even have a look of self-loathing or distaste for their colleagues while it happens. Compare that to the Republicans, who practically froth at the mouth with glee over the prospect of squeezing another penny out of thousands of the poor so their wealthy pals can be spared from paying another 0.01% of their net wealth in taxes next year.

      ...& the rest of the 2010 blowout.

      We as progressives win when:
      1. progressive Democrats fight for the progressive agenda, &
      2. the DINO love-me-I'm-a-liberals are afraid NOT to fight for it.

      Simply put, if you don't want to see closet Republicans replaced by real Republicans, then put your support & money behind real Democrats — & fight to win.
