    More than once. It makes me ill every time somebody compares Democrats to Republicans as in, "think how bad, (insert issue or vote here), would be if the Republicans were in charge". That's just absurd. I don't vote for Democrats to behave marginally less disasterously than Republicans, I vote for them in the hope that they'll behave like Democrats. I left Firedoglake in part because they were becoming reflexively anti Democrat but this site isn't really much better with so many people reflexively pro Democrat. Anti or pro is a distinction without a difference when doing it out of reflex.l

    "Given the choice between a Republican and someone who acts like a Republican, people will vote for a real Republican every time." Harry Truman
