    Kabuki theatre around the votes. I do care how a politician votes. But I do not care if his feelings got hurt in the process, if he approached his voting decision from a rational or irrational basis, if he supports or opposes a bill from the left or from the right, et cetera.

    A lot of people on this 'policy-oriented forum' (LOL, look at the rec-list. Policy need not apply, meta only) are easily deceived by shallow rhetoric. That's how people like Eric Massa end up being netroots heros... they need to write a few diaries with attack-dog rhetoric and are treated like deities around here- while no one notices that their votes don't match their rhetoric.
