    Of course she does.  I'm really sick of all this read/react, read/react behavior.  Time we start to read/reflect before we jump on someone.  Look at how the right wingers jumped all over Jill Carroll for daring to say things that would save her life.

    So, after being shafted twice by the Party, Christine should be the one to kiss and make up?  Only four days after a hard-fought primary?

    Like this?

  • So is it your position that we should abandon any district we think we can't win?  Just as we've done for so many years?  A strategy that has helped us lose election after election?

    Maybe you don't like the 50-state strategy, but as you can see above, Teixeira now is in favor of it, and Howard Dean recently converted the Big Dog.  The momentum is toward fighting for every district in the country.

  • Then don't generalize.  You sound just like a right winger when you generalize like that.

    ... that Cegelis didn't attend the "unity breakfast"?

    Could it have been a leak by the DCCC, in an attempt to force Cegelis to get in line and bow before the Party powerful, by trying to embarrass her?  And what are the chances that such tactics will simply make her angrier, rather than more likely to help Duckworth?

    And to those of you who want to condemn Christine without even hearing what SHE has to say, I believe your DCCC is showing.

  • Yes, and Rational is obviously with the terrorists, too.

    Derbyshire's an immigrant, isn't he?

    Oh, but he's a white, British immigrant.  So that makes him okay.  It's all those brown, non-English speaking furriners we don't like.

    What I see is too much read/react, instead of read/reflect/react.  Too many people are trying to be smart or funny or outstanding or "bad" or whatever, instead of having real discussions where we help each other learn.

    I can't remember where I heard or read this, but someone said college students learn more from their discussions with other students than they do in the classroom.  That was certainly true for me as an undergraduate.

    I'm only sorry we're not pursuing more of that kind of learning in these discussions, rather than just trying to impress each other.

    But what if Michael had a company name--Sterling Consulting, or something like that?  My point was, as Michael understood, that we can't trace back who works for whom--not for certain, anyway, from screen names.

    Some people will purposely hide their associations, not because they're not sure if an association needs to be revealed, as in Michael's case, but because they definitely want to conceal it.  As did the DCCC folks who tried to start blogging for Duckworth soon after she announced.  We only found out about them because someone knew how to derive their IP address and then find out who the address belonged to.  The owner was the DNC, but it was used by the DCCC.

    Frankly, I think whatever anyone says on the Internet who is afraid to give his or her real name and a way to get in touch, should be disregarded.

    I, too, have noticed a cooling of the blogs.  I, too, think some big vested interests are performing successful seductions of big bloggers.  Just as the mainstream media were seduced.  God forbid that we great unwashed hordes should get "too" riled up.

    I'm trying to believe that you're not suggesting we all become psychopaths, like Karl Rove.

    I agree that paid operatives posting on blogs should disclose when they're being paid.  The problem is enforcement.  Honorable people will do the honorable thing.  Dishonorable people won't.

    Take heart, though, because with every one of these races we get closer to scaring the DC establishment into representing we the people.  Keep on keepin' on.

    You mean those checks made out to Adam B and Kagro X?  Those should be easy to find.

    They work for us.  We don't kowtow to them.  That's the difference.

    Yeah.  Relax and enjoy being screwed.  Good idea.

    Your comments will go a long way toward healing the breach.
