    I have long been a big fan of your writing.  No one can turn a sentence quite like you can.  There are just so many great descriptions here which bring your subject matter to life that it was hard to choose just one as favorite.  

    There is no political upside to Democrats becoming the Chained CPI party. None. Not only is there no upside, but it will hurt every Democratic office holder because it does harm to the heart of the party brand. Liberal. Moderate. Corporatist Semi-Conservative. I have spent hours of my life looking for some shred of a fig leaf for this, and I have found not a single solitary coherent rational explanation as to how it helps anyone in the Democratic Party win in 2014, or beyond, or helps maintain/grow the party brand, or how it will, in any way, bolster or strengthen the Democratic Party at all.
    Thank you for helping the Hell No! blogathon.

      in the fight. I think we need to come together on this.

      Everybody has a reason to fight this.

      Everybody. Somebody who thinks Joe Lieberman and Joe Manchin are too liberal has a reason to shake a fist at this one. I still can't believe that this is happening.

      I'm hoping I don't wake up one day having to fight a Democrat embracing a national Right to Work law being seen as Democratic Policy as an opening bid pot sweetener at this point.

      I am from the Elizabeth Warren and Darcy Burner wing of the Democratic Party
