    How do we move beyond the negativity of bashing stupid behavior, and on to meaningful action and change?
    In other words, how do we stop bashing Republicans and start propagandizing for Democrats?  That was the gist of the second diary you quoted.

    You want to know how to effect change?  Start holding politicians accountable including - and especially - politicians in our own party.  That means not propagandizing for them when they fail to do good thing.  It means not spinning Democratic weakness into strength, thus enabling the worst of Democratic politicians.  And it means doing all this without the wailing and gnashing of teeth that typically accompany these things about how it's helping the Republicans.

    In short, it means being part of the reality-based community rather than being part of the spin and propaganda-based community.

    The second diary you mention was headed in precisely the wrong direction, thus I can only assume that's the direction you wish to go as well.

    No thanks.
