  •  Problem is, it's Nevada (4+ / 0-)

    We really need to be building the party brand here in a key Western state. A better Democrat in the primary would be good, but we shouldn't let GOP strength grow in Nevada. Even Harry the wimp would be better than that.

      If he WASN'T majority leader.

      I say Reid has a choice -- he can promise to resign as majority leader, or he can face an alternative version of the "PUMAs".

      Don't donate to the DSCC in 2010 - They'll give your money to Harry Reid.

      •  Except the PUMAS were even wimpier than Reid. (1+ / 0-)

        Which is saying a lot. He'd laugh at that threat.

        The only thing to do here is to launch a full-throated movement to defeat and remove him.  We then wave his scalp around and let underperforming Democrats know that they could be the next victim.

        In other words, taking out the dangerously incompetent and very likely compromised Reid could be the beginning of a long-overdue movement to hold Democrats accountable.

        More Democrats? Fuck that. We need BETTER Democrats -- or a third party. We need to PURGE the quislings from the Senate.

      Harry Reid could single-handedly derail Obama's entire agenda.  And he WILL -- because he has shown his true loyalty is to the Republicans.  He has shown it again and again and again.

      He MUST be removed even if it puts a Repuke in that seat.  Period.

      More Democrats? Fuck that. We need BETTER Democrats -- or a third party. We need to PURGE the quislings from the Senate.
