Dems Unite To Combat Energy Crisis

The point has been made, but I'd like to again note the following current REC LIST:

[!] Imus was fired, but Obama raises $$ to 'Ho' Routine

299 comments (299 new)

[!] Anti-Obama? What do you hope to gain?

This is actually a relatively good showing for MyDD, with only 60% of the Rec List devoted to piefighttery.  Its still a tremendous waste of energy.  

And so a modest proposal in the name of energy conservation:

1.  Obama supporters need not make the case for Obama any longer.  Clinton supporters need not trash the party's presumptive nomineee anymore.  This fight is largely generational, cuts to the core of liberal values that have. for better or worse, evolved over the decades, and is tied up inextricably with the hard feelings that occasion a hotly-contested primary.  Some folks are just going to be angry...and that's their right.

2.  All folks can agree that progressive causes still need fighting for.  Regardless of one vote we'll all be casting (or not casting) in November, let's keep piefighterry off the Rec List.

3.  Let's make the Rec List an impressive sampling of progressive policy discussion, shall we?  Or how about diaries providing much needed attention to all of our downticket candidates?  Or about why politics is something to be excited about (rather than angry and unproductive)?

Let's just all focus on NOT reccing piefighttery.  Let piefighttery remain on the long list.  Let's just all focus on writing and reccing substantive discussion of everything NOT presidential.  The front pagers can handle that.

It's the only reason troll diaries make the rec. list.

Let's rec good diaries up and rid ourselves of the scum.

Organize people.

Kudos to Eli for the find.

Re: Dems Unite To Combat Energy Crisis

Too many of them and Jerome will not do anything but warn Obama supporters. I've gone through and thought of diaries to post. I even came close to posting one with this idea, I'm going to reopen it, even though I thought it might be too look at me, look at me, let me know what you think if you don't mind.

Write it up

I did one a while ago and it seemed to help for a bit.

There's nothing to keep them off the reclist if the sockpuppet brigade is going to swarm like they did yesterday, but as campskunk says:

we're only as relevant as they make us ;-)

...but you KNOW how they whine about everything. after that crazy diary by linfar, i'm convinced most of our publicity comes from the other side.

I know. Off topic. But you can save energy by checking out Reaperbot's bike diaries. Saves energy and folks are getting along just swimmingly. I know, I know Off topic. But then again people are getting along AND they are talking about saving energy...
