  •  Are they really though? (0+ / 0-)

    I think every one know that there are recall elections. I think discussing the poll is great. Soliciting donations does not fit the mission statement that has been adopted since we moved to Kos.

    •  I think you need to take a closer look (7+ / 0-)

      At SSP's history. McAdams was not a special, one-time thing. We've endorsed and raised money for candidates for many, many years, going all the way back to 2004 (Jon Tester, Travis Childers, Jim Martin, etc.). And the recalls do not reflect some mere "policy difference." SSP was always a progressive site (just like DK is), and these races go to the very core of our mission.

      I'm pretty confident in our ability to judge races fairly and still remain active partisans. I'm a partisan whether I raise money for a candidate or not, and I want Democrats to win whether I'm raising money for a candidate or not.

      Then when David did it back at SSP for Scott McAdams or Jim Martin. And this was originally posted for the front page and reposted to DKE.
