  •  Not All "Purity Trolls" Created Equal I guess (0+ / 0-)

    I seem to remember a number of posts defending Obama after his FISA statement calling those of us who criticized it as being "Purity Trolls".

    When I read kos' post and DK's letter, I realized that there can be an Obama "purity trolls" as well. I guess I never saw in the contract where I couldn't criticize a candidate after s/he locked the nomination.  

    I am with Giordano & Kos & Greenwald on this one - candidates don't get a pass just because they are OUR candidates.

    Maybe if those close to candidates actually talked to the major (i.e. not just monied) constituencies before a major statement on a controversial issue, we'd have less problems and arguments.
