  •  We'll do anything except fix the problems (5+ / 0-)

     Inner city poverty, Drug wars,and crime, Single Payer/Mental Health, and suicide, inadequately funded legislation, and Government agencies,etc.
     The real issues are too hard to address. Much easier and cheaper to push  Laws that have little chance of doing what they are supposedly designed for, little chance of passing in the current political reality, and pushing away those single issue voters in tossup districts that we need to increase our Democratic numbers. Running on a gun control platform in an already blue district does not increase Democratic influence in the House. It only makes for a contested Primary fight.
     As a side note, Markos should give some consultation to his candidate. A diary posted by her yesterday was basically a one issue diary, and she did not participate in the comment threads. Drive-by diaries are fine according to the rules, but without participation, I wonder how effective they are. Not to mention a diary in support of the candidate has been up for several hours now, with no comments. I'm not sure what that says.
