    ....the willingness of people to believe stuff like this:

    Baird is a good Democrat

    He gone nuts on Iraq but overall he pretty good just head on over to progressive punch and look at his score.

    So long as you support corporatists and militarists because they're "good Democrats," don't be surprised if your government continues to give your tax dollars away to their friends and to kill millions of innocents abroad in the name of "national security."

    This nicely summarizes what's wrong with American political life today. (Source)

    •  Baird is the best we can do in this district (2+ / 0-)

      Just like Kos rooting for Bob Kerrey in Nebraska, Brian Baird is about the best we can do - when this district had other D's, it was the anti-abortion Bonker. Even her pro-gun stance couldn't save Jolene Unsold from a write-in campaign by the wingnut Linda Smith.

      Per http://projects.washingtonpost.com/...

      Brian Baird has voted with a majority of his Democratic colleagues 96.0% of the time during the current Congress.

      What kind of party are we to demonize a congressman who represents religious wingnut territory - who votes D 96% of the time?
