    If somebody at an Illinois polling place told you that you were a "registered" anything, they were scamming you.

    Too bad you fell for it.

    Doubt all you want.  Chris denigrated our efforts, even as he acknowledged our effectiveness.

    Absolute BS.  Cegelis supporters were strong proponents of our candidate, but we did not attack Duckworth.

    Go back and re-read the posts on Cegelis' behalf, and then tell me with a straight face that we attacked Duckworth.  We attacked insane people who said they liked Duckworth because she was "hot".  We attacked the Democratic establishment.  We said Duckworth was a "made" candidate, which is true.  We said she had a "campaign in a can", a phrase that came from Sun-Times columnist Lynn Sweet, and is also true.

    If that's "attacking" Duckworth, you ain't seen an attack.

    Our fervent support of Cegelis didn't turn anybody off.  Those who pretend that it did have some agenda other than letting the people decide who is best for their district.

    You need some time, Michael, but you'll see that this is one battle in the war to take back our country from the big-money interests.

    We will prevail.  We have to.

    whatever group of rag-tag GOTV activists Cegalis had in this election

    Why did you feel it necessary to insult us, Chris?  Rag-tag or not, we almost beat the Chicago/DC party power structure.

    We the people will persevere, and we will prevail.  Just like the rag-tag Colonial army that defeated the well-funded, well-trained, well-equipped, and far more numerous British troops.

    Because we believe in what we are doing.  We believe in each other and our values, not in some Washington power structure.

    We're not finished.  We'll be back.  We will take over.

    Luntz is a proponent (if not the inventor) of a tactic I call the Lie by Proximity.  That is, he says you can put unrelated names and issues together in a sentence or paragraph as a way of making people think they're related when they're really not--like Saddam and 9/11.

    I hope and pray that Democrats will not become that dishonest.

    Yeah, well, we progressives are pretty disappointed in Obama.  And in Melissa Bean.  They either used us as patsies to get elected, or the Washington crowd turned them into good little DLC automatons.

    Either way, they've lost much of their base.

    To Rahm Emanuel and the DCCC:  Whatcha gonna do when Bush starts bringing the troops home?

    What good will your Fighting Dems strategy be then?  You'll have made a lot of enemies for nothing.

    ... that Christine Cegelis got 44% of the vote against the hidebound Henry Hyde, without much of a budget.  She may even be the reason that Hyde decided to retire.

    Besides, we really don't know where Duckworth stands on the issues.  She hasn't been able to comment, as she's not yet released from the military.

    Considering the fact that she's being sponsored by DLCer Rahm Emanuel with the help of his fellow DLCer George Stephanopolous,

    we have to wonder.
