    comments.  We have some definition here of "actual democrats" which seems to have the same purity test as "true conservatives".  It ignores the fact that it has always been a big tent party.  And with McA it isn't enough for him to campaign on the right things because he's been friends with the wrong people and part of "the establishment".  So "actual democrats" have to have always been pure.  They can't have evolved.  And they can't run conservatively even if they live in the deep red South.  Maybe it's just me but when we tell young people there's no difference between the parties, or we still complain about a candidate who's running as a progressive because he doesn't have good progressive cred it's possible that we aren't doing much to encourage people to vote.
