"I saw this diary earlier today over at the Great Orange Satan. The general premise is that, since there is a higher percentage of Hillary-supportive contributors here, that this place is therefore terrible and no longer an acceptable place for the A-list bloggers to hang out."
Actually, since I am the person who wrote the diary at Daily Kos, I can tell you what the real premise was.
The premise is that this site is filled with so much hate and vitriol lately (as evidenced by this diary: http://www.mydd.com/story/2008/2/7/14331
/02538 as well as the comments within, as well as several factually-challenged posts by Jerome et al.) that I wondered what ever happened to substantive debate.
Seems to me, all the Obama-bashers have nothing in their arsenal except xenophobia, false aspersions, misleading data (like the claim that MyDD is growing when it's level of readership has dropped to what it was in mid 2004), etc.
Whereas Obama's supporters are armed with facts, such as Hillary's vote to authorize the Iraq war, Hillary's vote to support Bush's policy of aggression in Iran, Bill's comments dismissing Obama's trouncing of Hillary in SC by basically saying, hey some other black guy won here too before, fake crying, the list goes on....
But don't let facts get in the way of your sensationalized descriptions of Obama's huge base of support as "cultists".
"Hillary: I support Hillary because the Media Seems to Maybe Sorta Kinda Like Obama, and Regardless of Obama's Actual Policy Positions I Just Can't Like a Guy Unless He Is Despised By the Media Because I'm Just That Frakking Shallow"
You remind me of the non-conformist kid in south park that decided he was so non-conformist he was going to conform to society so he could really show those other non-conformist kids... lmao
Sadly, that has become typical for the MyDLC crowd lately.
[a href='MyDLC] Hey did you hear that Obama's cousin is a scary Muslim? And that his church's leaders sisters cousin once said some nice things about Farakhan? Did you know he went to a Madrassa?? You know, the scary Muslim schools where they teach everyone to become smart, pretend to be a Christian, and covertly destroy the United States from within? [/a]
By "sacrifice", DK means "selling out". He would be a perfect neo-con because all he is interested in is winning -- at any cost.
DK is right, we are in a "struggle for the soul" of the party. But if DK had his way, we would be selling that "soul" to the big money special interests and we would keep our mouths shut about civil rights, violence, racism, womens right's and anything else that makes a liberal a liberal.
In other words, DK would like us to join Joe Lieberman in reshaping the Democratic party in the image of the Republicans.
And for the record, all of DK's listed "winning issues" have all been discussed at great length by DNC chair Gov. Howard Dean, but like the DINO's before him, DK doesn't bother to reference that fact - wouldn't want to stray from the tried and true path of negativity towards one's own party chairman...
