    that purity tests simply don't work for either side of the aisle.  If you've posted here for a while, you know there are people who castigate Rahm for pushing moderate Dems in more conservative districts.  It's smart politics - most people reside in the middle of the spectrum.  Any party that's going to survive in the future is going to have to grow - not get smaller which is all that purity tests accomplish.  

    So keep it up sarah, beck, rush and the rest.  They will drive away all moderates and all that will be left are a small group of very ideological whackos who will lose districts in all but the reddest districts.  This Democrat can't wait for them to succeed at driving out the moderates.  And Nancy will continue to pick up votes for the Democratic agenda.  Pretty sweet.

      barely any democrats are near the middle,...most are far left and into things proven not to work, like cap and trade, socialized medicine, and pure socialism,...but we can argue all we want it wont make a difference cuz its not like the people we elect run the country anyways

      The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else
