  •  I'd call you a jerk (4+ / 0-)

    if I was into "name-calling"...but what I said I stand by 100%.
    Anything worth attaining is worth fighting for, and you hand-wringing whingers are getting in the way of the battle.

    Better Democrats, please.

    •  Do you even live here? (5+ / 0-)

      I knocked on doors in the snow for Martha Coakley (who couldn't be bothered to do the same for herself), and worked all year for Elizabeth Warren. I will do it again. Will you?

      I also damn near got jumped by a bunch of townie goons in Central Mass. because I'll tell it like it is about Scott Brown and the GOP. It's not spineless to assess the situation in my own state, which I know well, and say we have a problem. But I'm sure your happy thoughts will inspire Presidential-level Democratic turnout in a special election.

      BTW, starting a comment by calling people "pusillanimous flamers" is not consistent with not being into name-calling.

      Republicans...think the American standard of living is a fine thing--so long as it doesn't spread to all the people. And they admire the Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it. Harry S. Truman

        Get serious. Double your efforts. Or, support anyone who will.
        If this wasn't hard, it wouldn't be worth fighting for.

          But, frankly, we needed to double or triple our efforts on state and local issues already. And on pushing federal policies. Even if we win it's a lot of energy diverted needlessly.

          Obviously it's not your fault. But you shouldn't piss on the people doing the work here just because they have an opinion.

      I also almost got jumped by a bunch of townie jerks in Central Mass. because I'll tell it how it is about Scott Brown and the GOP. It's not spineless to point out, based on actual knowledge of the state's dynamics, that this will be tough. But I'm sure your happy thoughts magically will generate presidential-year Democratic turnout in a special election.

      BTW, starting a comment by calling people who actually live in the state at issue "pusillanimous flamers" means you are "into name-calling."

      See you in Massachusetts this summer?
