    about DK so much it's scary. Particularly this paragraph:

    I don't complain because I don't care. This is not something I take all that seriously. Once again, if some person reads this exchange and decides "well, that person said blahdablahdablah therefore I'm not going to vote at all next fall that'll show them" it isn't my problem. I'm a nobody. On a website. They chose to do that. I didn't choose it for them. I can say with certainty that no one's words here have ever influenced my vote.
    You wrote elsewhere that DK stopped being electorally relevant years ago. My timeline says late 2006 with Jim Webbs Senate victory. DK helped keep George Allen's 'Macaca' comment alive until Main Media picked it up. That and DK fundraising and organizing gets some credit for his razor-thin victory. This then gave the Democrats a majority in the Senate which was crucial in curtailing the worst of Bush/Cheney's lameduck administration.

    Since then, not so much. My characterization of dailykos is that of an Alumni Association of all the College Young Democrats clubs of the last 50 years. And given the demographics of DK, a lot of it is skewed to the older end (raises hand).

    There was only one joker in L.A. sensitive enough to wear that scent...and I had to find out who he was!
