    Were we not, looking around the room, we could easily recognize the reality based part of it by their neck braces by now. :)

      reality based just how much of the debates here about whether the Dems are or are not the party of FDR is mostly a "no."

        And then ran into an iceberg.

        It was then backed up and rammed into it again,

        and again,

        and again,

        and again.

        I wonder why we are sinking, I thought we were unsinkable? Nice deck chairs though! Teak? hard to tell, they are whizzing past so quickly.

        •  Yeah, its a bit funny the read or see (4+ / 0-)

          the shock when all of this was predicted last year.

          Its also interesting to read the professional blogger class, which has hitched itself to the Democratic leadership, as they try to address the cognitive dissonance of what they say on the one and and what they mean on the other.

          It was recently stated by someone else that the biggest mistakes blogs like this made was in 2007 they decided to hitch themselves to the party leadership, Not the party mind you in terms of the base. The leadership. This will turn out in the long run to have been a big mistake because the reality is that in the near term - its only going t get worse.

          I predict in the long term 2 right wing parties are not sustainable, but by the time things fall out, I am no sure blogs like this will be part of whatever shake up occurs.

            comments prior to the Primaries and see that we were already talking about this mid-terms should a DLC type candidate be elected. Even potential splits in both Parties! Acres of zeroes on my part; not a popular concept. But it was out there.

            I agree that it was a big mistake on the part of blog principals not to take sides. A more stringent look at policy might have made us a more cohesive force than we ultimately ended up being.

            I doubt that that mistake will be made again. It was just too costly last time for them to make it again.
