    I'm sorry, but I find this insistence that Kos or Democrats are being "wrong" to be way too much.

    Regardless of the specifics of the campaign finance reform attempt, it is without doubt that the Republicans have used every shady and wrong trick to get what they want, i.e.:

  • Bush vs Gore
  • Homeland Security Act
  • Texas Redistricting
  • California Recall

    This goes on and on.  The point here is that what the Democrats are doing is perfectly legal, and the Republicans and Bush could care less about doing the right thing.

    Losing isn't an option anymore, not against extremely dangerous radical freaks like Bush, so one does what one must, as long as it's legal.

    Yeah I know I said I'd stay away from the comments for 90 days.  But some hoser moralizing to Kos about being "wrong" was just too much.  We're up against Republicans who could care less.  Why should be be penalized for their intransience?
