According to the FAQ linked to on the front page of this site:
What is the purpose of this site?
(Condensed from this diary written by kos in late 2004)
This is a Democratic blog, a partisan blog. One that recognizes that
Democrats run from left to right on the ideological spectrum, and yet
we're all still in this fight together. We happily embrace centrists
like NDN's Simon Rosenberg and Howard Dean, conservatives like Martin
Frost and Brad Carson, and liberals like John Kerry and Barack Obama.
Liberal? Yeah, we're around here and we're proud. But it's not a
liberal blog. It's a Democratic blog with one goal in mind: electoral
victory. And since we haven't gotten any of that from the current
crew, we're one more thing: a reform blog. The battle for the party is
not an ideological battle. It's one between establishment and anti-
establishment factions. And as I've said a million times, the status
quo is untenable.
Today, the following is posted at FDL.
We’re Joining "Don’t Ask, Don’t Give" Boycott
By: Jane Hamsher Tuesday November 10, 2009 7:38 am
John and Joe at AmericaBlog are launching a donor boycott of the DNC. We’re joining it along with , Dan Savage, Michelangelo Signorile, David Mixner, Andy Towle and Michael Goff of Towle Road, Paul Sousa (Founder of Equal Rep in Boston), Pam Spaulding, Robin Tyler (ED of the Equality Campaign, Inc.), and Bil Browning for the Bilerico Project:
Until the Democratic Congress passes, and President Obama signs, legislation enacting ENDA, repealing DADT, and repealing DOMA, we ask you to join us in pledging to postpone contributions to the Democratic National Committee, Organizing for America, and the Obama campaign.
If you’re a member of OFA, you can "unsubscribe" here and let them know you’ll be back when these issues have been addressed.
Also, today’s a big day in the New York State Senate, where they are likely to vote on gay marriage. If you’re a New Yorker, please contact your state senator and let them know how you feel.
No more money to the DNC. Or Obama. Certainly Daily Kos is entitled to join such a campaign. But is it consistent with the site's mission as stated on the FAQ's? I don't think so. The FAQ's should probably be changed.
