    "Just because."

    Democratic politicians need to craft a message that will draw voters out to the polls to vote for them. "Bipartisan" and the like are not strong enough messages.

    I swore going into the last election that I would not vote for any politicians who could not clearly articulate, "If you vote for me, I will ... XYZ," where XYZ was on my agenda.

    The incumbent Dem in my old Congressional district didn't even have a campaign website. Fuck it, he didn't even have a campaign.

    In a country where not a few Democrats are afraid to stand up for policies and programs as clearly and unambiguously popular as reproductive rights and Medicare, it's a real surprise to me that people keep voting for them.

    We can howl at Snyder all we want, but he convinced voters to turn out and elect him. His opposition, Virg Bernero, did not.

    "I'll believe that corporations are people when I see Rick Perry execute one."
