View Diary: Key Democratic donors ante up, pushing party left (70 comments)

  •  DINO (0+ / 0-)
    As I wrote yesterday, part of our success as a movement has been to get Democrats to understand that they were on the unpopular side of many an issue, from the Iraq War, to equality, to immigration, and so on.
    Support of DINOS in red districts makes sense in the short run--but weakens the future.  I was not received kindly when I asked this site to ignore McIntyre's run for re-election for the House in NC--even though in 2010, he ran ads against Obama and Pelosi--and has been forever on the wrong side on important issues.  If you sleep with shit, you stink.  Dems need to kick out red dogs--not wait for them to lose an election.  Put the fear of Lefty into their spines.

    Apres Bush, le deluge.
