I started reading an editorial in today's Plain Dealer.  I thought it was going to be positive editorial about YearlyKos and about how the DLC has little influence left.  I was angry to find it was all actually an attack progressive ideas and the netroots.

After discussing who was in attendance at YearlyKos and not at the DLC meeting, the attack began:

(The attack is below the fold.)

Net-roots activists like their politics undiluted by moderation or pragmatism.

...of course, no one here ever has well thought out ideas that represent the views of most Americans, oh wait, the ideas of universal health care and raising taxes on the rich are held by a majority of Americans

[The netroots] have forced Pelosi and Reid into a succession of failed anti-war measures that have demolished Congress' approval ratings.

...yep, the American people hate anti-war measures, oh wait again, most Americans are against the war in Iraq

Unless the presidential candidates have more backbone, they risk being pushed into a corner that could help resuscitate the dispirited GOP.

C'mon!  Don't all of you see that we are helping the Republicans!  You have taken away the backbone of the candidates.

What a frickin' joke.

If you are as pissed as I am, you can complain to them here:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
