    I sometimes wonder when I read certain comments in certain diaries if us EENRers would be so complacent about shifting principles if our candidate had won the nomination.

    And of course the answer is no, because we'd be the first ones at the gate with torches.

    Second thing I'm sure of: No EENRer I know of would countenance STFU fece-flinging troll-rating crusades to silence dissent.

    The fact is that the average man's love of liberty is nine-tenths imaginary, exactly like his love of sense, justice and truth. - H.L. Mencken

    •  I agree. We would have criticized Edwards (6+ / 0-)

      like some have with Obama.  There are many who were vociferous Obama supporters in the primary and who joined the FISA group on mybarackoabam.com.  I'd like to believe most EENRers would be like that.  Loyal dissent.

        supporters would do a diary each night called the Edwards Evening News Roundup.  A community grew up around these diaries of Edwards supporters who would write diaries and comments.  Members of the community, which were anyone who came by,  sometimes called themselves EENRers.

        Here's an example:
