    I would like to point out that it's not the DK community that has been uncooperative in this fight. We have sacrificed most if not all of our policy ideas, but we've never asked for anything unreasonable or impossible that could actually kill the bill.

    It's the Blue Dogs who have done that. It's impossible for Democrats to betray women with any sort of change of the status quo. Impossible politically, impossible morally after how Americans voted. That is in no way part of the mandate.

    So let's remember who's really closer to the unreasonable end of the spectrum. I'd say DK lines up at Nancy Pelosi.

    We are the grownups, despite whatever griping there is on our end, it's the Blue Dogs who must be remembered as the unreasonable mob, not us.
