        Because you care more about elections than about what happens between them.

        how re-electing a bunch of Democratic corporate shills is going to keep corporate shills out of the Supreme Court.

        •  ALL Repubs are corporate shills (1+ / 0-)

          Only about half of the Dems are.  With Dems in power at least we have a fucking chance.  The Greenies and Naderites in 2000, with their "there's no difference between Bush and Gore" helped give us eight of years holy fucking hell.   But go ahead, take part in the circular firing squad.  But when President Romney packs the SCOTUS in 2013, own up to what you helped accomplish.
          You "fail to see" all right.

            is the difference between the fast road and slow road to hell, no more.  And as long as most of you remain committed to continuing your dysfunctional, one-sided relationship with the Democratic Party, and to demonizing the third parties and other groups that are trying to put leftward pressure on the party, it's going to continue to be this way.  I certainly wouldn't agree with the Naderites that there's no difference between the Repubs and the Democrats, but there's certainly not enough of a difference to make the Democrats a consistently compelling voting option for a lot of voters.  And continuing to vote for them as they continue fucking you is not going to change the Democratic Party for the better.  That doesn't mean that people shouldn't vote for the good Democrats when they can find them, but it's foolish to reward the bad ones with your vote.
