    Buddydrama, slink, no thank you.  

    How we behave is what we really represent.  If we're gonna act like Bill O'Reilly and Michelle Malkin (or cheer on people who act like them) we aren't offering anything any better than "they" do.

    FDL hasn't flipped a single vote on healthcare.  Just made a ton of noise and a lot of it divisive, egotistical, garbage IMO.  Getting votes to flip is how we get there, not leading a witchhunt on Patrick Kennedy two days after his father died.  That isn't good work AFAICS.

    No thank you.

    And so, yeah, I see it differently.  Part of that includes being effective.  Another part includes being good people, being the "change we want to see" (more important to me than any label regarding someone's political philosophy).

    Just out of curiosity, what has buddydrama ever done aside from preaching to the choir (and being a total asshole whenever somebody disagrees with him)?  Sorry, I don't see good work there either, just a compulsive need for attention.

    I can't think of anybody who's ever changed my mind about anything by yelling at me and telling me how morally superior they are.

      Which is why I've had so many personal comments directed from them or to them.

      I know we were talking about health care reform in 2008--so why were we not discussion who would be in this congress more?

      Some people only seem capable of focusing on one person at a time, and they seem to have park that focus at the president. If only we had a few less of these high-salaried elitists in the Congress and Senate who are so heavily indebted to the pharmaceutical and insurance industries.
