    is the one person mentioned who is unacceptable. He's horrible. And yes, if he runs, I'll be making that case as I look forward to supporting his opposition.

    •  What do you single him out so? (0+ / 0-)

      What makes Meehan less acceptable than, say, Lynch or Grossman?

      I know he's not a progressive hero, but I'm surprised that he would qualify as "the one person" who is uniquely bad.

        completely unacceptable. Hell, I might vote for Brown.

        Republicans...think the American standard of living is a fine thing--so long as it doesn't spread to all the people. And they admire the Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it. Harry S. Truman

      After only seven years...:

      We would rather not be engaging in a tit-for-tat with Reps. Shays and Meehan following their latest response to the joint letter circulated by Markos Moulitsas and Mike Krempasky yesterday. Our preference has always been to work together with those representatives and outside groups sincerely interested in balancing the desire to stem corruption with the need to protect political activity online, and I will continue to speak with anyone interested in alternatives to H.R. 4194 as it is presently constructed.

      But that letter demands a response, and it does because of what it reveals. For all their strutting about the "great virtue" of discourse on the Internet, Reps. Shays and Meehan repeatedly attack our letter for "circulating on the Internet" as though the medium alone somehow detracted from the truth of its message, almost as if we had posted it in a bathroom stall rather than faxing it to all 435 Members' offices before posting online.

      More to the point, one needs to read the silences of that letter to understand what Rep. Shays and Meehan really mean....
