    The Republicans are pandering to the "hard right", the real wingnuts.

    The right wing and the media has essentially framed it so that everything to the left of George Will is some sort of crazed, ultra-liberal, far left lunatic, but that's not the case at all. The left wing equivalent to the people the GOP are pandering to now would be the hardcore Marxists and Communists. I don't see Harry Reid or CNN praising the bold work of Communists on TV.

    Were the Democratic Party in Europe they would be considered a center right party at the very least. They're really not very liberal or progressive at all. So when Kos talks about the base, he's talking about Democrats actually pushing policies real progressives like, not policies that both progressives and Republicans really don't like but can deal with in a pinch.
