    why use face book likes and tweets for what gets pushed editorially? How does appealing to people who want to read about Bachman, Wal Mart, and Texas get anything accomplished about campaign finance reform? That is some cart before the horse useless politics. People may be news junkies but I thought this was a site that billed itself as reality based Democratic  politics. Talk about low information voters, if you only care about running up your stats via the social media likes and dislikes how in the hell is that going to result in people taking action on any issue that results in 'better Dems'.  

    I never come here for 'news' anymore there is none other then mocking Republicans or the latest rigged by-partisan DC kabuki show replete with meaningless memes or talking points that do nothing obscure the reality and maintain the 'intolerable status quo'. Politico and Huffpo has more real political news then dkos does at this point which is pathetic. Ask me it's why the freaking D party machine is useless and how we ended up with this lot in power and lobbyists, banksters and war criminals instead of Democrats running the D electoral machine and our government.

      and don''t think it's simply a matter of "running up stats" - there's an ebb and flow of stuff, and the community has pools & eddies that swirl about various topics like a real current.

      I am sick of the Kabuki theater in DC - it's become far worse since the GOP enacted its moratorium on progress and the Democrats haven't successfully called them out and forced them to change.

      I used to refer to it "Kabuki theater in a Potemkin village" but now I think it's nearly achieved a new level of mixed & twisted metaphor, "Kabuki theater in a Potemkin 'Village of the Damned.'"

      But I still see dKos as a powerful tool for news, information and activism.
