    Yeah, let's let Scott Brown get elected instead because he's really going to do an awesome job representing the corper...errr I mean people. It's time to get weird if we are going to reclaim our democracy--DocDawg clearly doesn't understand that and is simply abetting corporate America in retaining it's stranglehold on our government. We need to do everything we can to educate folks who would otherwise be on our side that they need to look at our approach with an understanding that desperate times call for desperate measures (and by that I mean helping get someone into office that I normally would NEVER support and I'm sure my conservative friends feel the same way about the liberal candidates we are backing and I respect them for understanding that this is the only way we are going to change things). DocDawg clearly is not thinking outside the box and I challenge him to come up w/ a better option but that ain't gonna happen b/c there isn't one so instead I say "Get on the right side of the battle my friend."

      I won't rehash my arguments yet again here, but I will say, in response to "DocDawg clearly is not thinking outside the box."

      Do what's right, not merely what is expedient is, I think, a pretty durn far-outside-the-box-idea nowadays (just as it has been for thousands of years).

      [Expedient: adjective. (of an action) convenient and practical, although possibly improper or immoral.]

      Man is timid and apologetic; he is no longer upright; he dares not say 'I think,' 'I am,' but quotes some saint or sage. (Ralph Waldo Emerson) Wait...what?
