    After all, you want the bill to fail.  I'm surprised you don't post his number and exhort people to call his office encouraging him to hold out and be a "progressive hero".

    •  HR'd for personal attack on diarist (6+ / 0-)

      Not a single iota of substance.

      And thread-jacking.

      It's hard to see how this adds value to the discussion.

        This post demonizes Nelson's opposition to the bill. If the diarist is opposed to the bill, what's the point of being indignant at Nelson's opposition?  I didn't personally attack the diarist at all, and I've applauded her efforts to win a robust public option.  Obviously, I stated an opinion that you don't like, so you hide behind the diarist in order to hide-rate me.

          Titling your post "What the fuck do you care?"

          sounds like a personal attack to me.

          Think about if you said it to the diarist's face, in the kitchen.

          •  It wasn't a personal attack. (0+ / 0-)

            It was an honest question peppered with colorful language, and yes, I would ask it to her face.  I as much as did that in my comment.

            As far as I know, there is no prohibition against swearing in comments, and the use of a swear word doesn't, in and of itself, constitute a personal attack.  If it did, then practically everybody should be hide-rated.

      this post is important information about Nelson's stripping of the medicaid expansion and the subsidies, as well as the stupak stuff. He will strip the few remaining parts of the bill that its supporters like.  That is NOT slink's fault; it is something that the bill's supporters will have to face, however frustrating it is.
