    You've really put your finger on the difference between Democrats and Republicans: Dems believe that as members of the same society (whether at the national, state or city level), we all have an obligation to protect and care for one another; Repubs believe that society should be obliged to care for and protect them, but everyone else can go hang.  As Obama put it in his acceptance speech: the Republican philosophy is "tough luck, you're on your own."

    YOYO Republicanism.  That's what the (formerly) grand old party has devolved to.

      If you look at my blog, you'll see I've been called a lot of unsavory things for posting this info, and it can be scary to put this out there. But I worked for John Kerry in 2004, and I'm not watching another good man get swiftboated based on right wing lies and hypocrisy. No way, no how, no McCain-Palin.

      I feel like Kos is group therapy for sane people.
