  •  Have to disagree pretty strongly with this. (0+ / 0-)

    I think Kos was talking about discouragement on the part of the voting public.  If he really meant that discouraging comments at DKos would lose elections, I'd have to start wondering whether he was completely losing his perspective.

    "Posts like this" have very little (causative) to do with whether an election is won or lost, at best, they might report how the voting public is feeling.

    Real things, like shutting down the government, or cutting SS, have much more impact on voters than a comment someone makes on a political blog.  If political blogs are important at all it's because they might generate pressure on politicians to do the things that will not discourage voters.
