      Anyone who voted for the shutdown and voted to defund Obamacare is NOT a moderate. It's lazy media that says this.

       As mentioned, these people are "establishment", and get their money from traditional GOP Koch-like backers who aren't all that racist and aren't that homophobic, and they want government to still exist, as long as it cuts their taxes and give them some nice taxpayer-funded kickbacks. But these guys are in no way "moderates" that believe in public education or adequately making government work for the average citizen.

       That's in contrast to the typical Bagger, who wants to burn the shit to the ground because.....well, there's a black guy in the white house and we don't like them.

      And it's time the media stop portraying either of them as close the national mainstream. They are not.

      moderate today is now a part of the right. Bratt is even further to the right than Cantor. This is what makes the media refer to Cantor as a moderate.

      It’s the Supreme Court, stupid! Followed by: It's always the Supreme Court! Progressives will win only when we convince a majority that they, too, are Progressive.
