  •  I find deriding your voters... (6+ / 0-)

    .... is often a very effective method of getting them to your view.

    GET OVER IT and your Jesus-strawman right off the bat are very effective tools for convincing people to enthusiastically endorse your candidate.

    Or, maybe not.

    But maybe that wasn't your goal?  

    Whatever, I'm sure you feel better after venting your spleen now.

    Who the hell wants to be part of a political movement that has as its most obvious feature politically correct prune lipped moral scolds and incessant guilt trips about how much we all suck?

      You don't persuade Democratic voters. You order them to the polls, with an appropriately paternal shaming tone.

      Eat your peas!

        ...since I didn't deride anyone, I simply questioned people's assumptions.  

        I gave my reasons for supporting Terry.  You can give yours for your choice -- just take full responsibility for all the implications of the choices that you make.

          I don't agree with you, but you didn't order anybody anywhere.

      •  Ever Wonder Why Democratic Leadership (0+ / 0-)

        can be openly contemptuous of its own base (saying that their acting fucking retarded), while repugs are scared to death of their base?
