      As I understand it, ObWi was originally intended to be a "voice of moderation," with a mix of progressive and conservative posters. There are still occasionally posts by the latter, but I'd say the progressives have had the upper hand for quite a while now.

      By huge leaps and bounds the best writer and thinking person on the site is hilzoy, whose posts also now appear in Steve Benen's "Political Animal" blog at the Washington Monthly website.

            as well.  But your Lamott line is as current as it ever was.
