Yes my friends they are splashed all over the Opinion Page. Not only that , they smash the DLC pretty damn good. Here's a teaser.

The DLC had two decades to make its case, to build an audience and community, to elect leaders the American people wanted. It failed.

Its members number in the hundreds, compared with the millions that the people-powered movement can claim, and they are reduced to attacking our movement from the studios of right-wing Fox News and pleading that in the next election they'll really prove that the mushy, indistinguishable "middle" is where the American people want to be.

I wonder how Harold likes them bones ? Rarely, if ever, have Bloggers been given the OpEd page to fight back, let alone call things like they really are in the MSM. After reading the OpEd it feels kinda like those old cigarette commercials that had the catch phase, " You've Come A Long Way, Baby ".

I've been around here for a couple years now and this is a damn good feeling. Seeing the DLC get smacked down after Harolds piece of tripe the other day is extremely satisfying. Kudos to Markos and Susan, and Kudos to all of you that have been around and been a part of this history.

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.
