  •  The tent is too big (0+ / 0-)

    WAY too big, because it contains too many Republicans in disguise like Stephanie Herseth and Joe Lieberman.

    I am 100% in favor of withdrawing all netroots support from Herseth and letting her sink.

    •  Yep (0+ / 0-)

      This is the typical "Asskicking Annie" strategy: shrink the tent so small that only San Francisco Democrats can fit into it. Yep, again, folks, this is the textbook example of the "matyrdom liberal" that I have mentioned about here on Kos several times.

      •  It is nothing more than (0+ / 0-)

        demanding accountability.  Nobody expects a San Francisco liberal from South Dakota, but you, on the other hand, set the bar so low that any Senate Republican would have your support if he just changed his party affiliation and kept voting the exact same way.  It is people like YOU who give Stephanie Herseth and other pieces of shit like her the freedom to sell us out on every vote because they KNOW you will NEVER hold them accountable.

        •  And you would rather have Larry Diedrich and her (0+ / 0-)

          2006 opponent in that district? Again we are talking about South Dakota, where Bush beat Kerry by 20%. This is probably a R +20 District. What part of that don't you get? Then again, because you are a martrydom liberal, you'd rather have a Republican there so that you can have the Democratic minority that you want.

          •  It really doesn't matter (0+ / 0-)

            They both vote the same way -- lockstep for Bush all the way, so who the fuck cares?

            A feisty, determined minority would be vastly preferable to the utterly useless, do-nothing, enabler majority we have.

            •  Whatever (0+ / 0-)

              Why not just join the Green Party then if you want Republicans to win? Why not just join the Republican party and make the Democrats the minority party then? In the meantime, go to a board focused on defeating Democrats while the rest of us working toward electoral victory can do what we need to do to make that happen. You can go to Redstate, Free Republic, Lucianne.com, DU (where they tolerate people like you more), LGF, or whatever Green Party, or other far left party sites there. Go bash the Democratic Party to your content and work toward making them a minority there.

            •  "Bite me" is hardly rational discourse (0+ / 0-)

              A feisty, determined minority would be vastly preferable to the utterly useless, do-nothing, enabler majority we have.

                "Preferable" for what?  Sound-bites?  "Determined" to what?...appear on talk-shows?  But who wants to listen to them because, without the votes, they are not a force to be reckoned with?  We have had a "determined minority" ever since 1993 and we can see what that has got us.  If you do not have a working majority being "useless" is the ONLY option!
                I know that you think circular firing squads are romantic and that dying for some pure cause is preferable to working in a world of grays but, that is really only noble in the theater, where the blood is fake.  In the real world, those who are shot do not get up and return to their family after the director shout, "Cut".  They stay dead, like in the war in Iraq that goes on and on..."determined minority" (for all practical purposes) notwithstanding.
                If you want purity, I suggest you join a convent -- at least, there they strive for purity, though achieving it about as often as politicians do -- [or maybe just get laid :-)] Annie, because political parties are alien environments for such concepts and they will not change to suit your utopian dreams.  :-(
