    Yes. Well said. I think that's perhaps the most common comment I make, in various ways, every single day. That and the import of it. And it never seems to stop bearing repeating, unfortunately. One particular set variations that recent conversation triggers most frequently runs along the lines of: "we could overwhelm the Republicans if there wasn't such a high pile of Democrats in the way." And this is usually said in the larger context of killing the neoliberal beast of supply-side economics, which was so close to death in early 2009, before its cousin, Third Way, stepped in to nurse it back to life.

    I've enjoyed this thread as much as the diary, which I enjoyed very much. And I still liked Mizner's, too.

    Frankly, I'd rather take down Exxon or Goldman Sachs, the way we're taking down RushBeckistan, than elect another "better" Democrat who's going to wind up singing for the bankster choir.
