    You are wrong so often. You pissed me off in the primary season many, many times. But all is forgiven, man. Your site is a force for good. You have us energized and believing. I know so many Dems whose modus operandi is to mess their diaper at the first sign of trouble. I think you beat that out of many of them. You provided tools for us to give, to believe, to hope. You've moved the culture.

    I think you're full of crap about the relevance of the party system--if the blogosphere or something else supplants parties, it's just basic Adorno and Horkheimer that the new entity will morph in to the party system. But we can certainly keep the party honest. We can get e-mails in the next cycle that won't refer to us as the "on-line community" as if we're toons in a MMORPG but instead as living, breathing voters who happen to connect through the Internet(s). It won't quite add up to a smart mob like you seem to think. But it will move the chains so freaking far downfield towards democracy.

    Thank you!
