      I see a lot of corporate Democrats in DC who are barely distinguishable from Republicans when it comes to defending women's reproductive rights, gay equality, pursuing economic justice, and good climate policy.

        I see us dumbly shooting ourselves in the foot for meaningless legislation, making it more difficult for us to fight for real and important issues.  It's lunacy.
