  •  This is all so basic (2+ / 0-)

    That it's almost embarrassing that you even have to explain it at all. Anyone unfamiliar with this extremely basic premise can't be very familiar with basic history.

    I mean, sure, there are probably some folks out there who think that the occasional activist effort against guys like Joe Lieberman represents a cleft as large as that between, say, Ted Kennedy and Richard Shelby. But anyone who believes this would be ill-informed to the point of absurdity - especially because "liberal bloggers" don't have a seat in the Dem caucus.

      ... if the most simplistic approach were always the right one. Very well. Watch the 111th Congress, and learn.

      BTW, speaking of embarrassing basics -- you owe me some conspicuous apologies, don't you? How's that coming?

      We must defeat them over there, or they'll follow us home ... hide under our beds ... and grab us by the ankles when we get up to pee.

      •  Of course, you have it all wrong (0+ / 0-)

        You are owed no apologies, but you do in fact owe quite a few of my friends sincere apologies. But if there's one basic thing I've learned, it's never to expect socially normal behaviors from the Oracle of Mercer Island.

        •  You posted false and defamatory claims (0+ / 0-)

          ... to the efect that I said things here I have never said here or anywhere else. Why?

          Were you misled into believing these claims? You have had more than adequate notice and opportunity to check the record and correct any errors your friends may have led you into.

          This reflects badly on your integrity as an individual, and a follower of the law.  It also reflects badly on the site that a Contributing Editor would make false claims about what has appeared on the site.

          You also persist in this juvenile and misinformed name-calling exercise. What the fuck?

          You're better than this ... aren't you? Why not check your bearings, correct the record, make the appropriate apologies, and move on?

          We must defeat them over there, or they'll follow us home ... hide under our beds ... and grab us by the ankles when we get up to pee.

        •  Incidentally, you'll find a few notes downthread (0+ / 0-)

          ... in replies to Ga6thDem that you might learn something from, in spite of you best efforts to avoid doing so.
